Someone sent me this article today. I don't know ... What do you think about this??
Astronomers have restored the original Babylonian zodiac by recalculating the dates that correspond with each sign to accommodate millennia of subtle shifts in the Earth's axis. Prepare to have your minds blown, all you people with easily blowable minds.
Here is the zodiac as the ancient Babylonians intended it—with the dates corresponding to the times of the year that the sun is actually in each constellation's "house"—according to the Minnesota Planetarium Society's Parke Kunkle:
Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16.
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11.
Pisces: March 11-April 18.
Aries: April 18-May 13.
Taurus: May 13-June 21.
Gemini: June 21-July 20.
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10.
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16.
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30.
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23.
Scorpio: Nov. 23-29.
Ophiuchus:* Nov. 29-Dec. 17.
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.
* Discarded by the Babylonians because they wanted 12 signs per year.
As you may know, I'm involved with the 501 (C)(3) non-profit KnockOuts For Girls (www.KO4G.org) and we are doing our annual Toy Drive for Foster Kids (see attached flyer). If you like to give back during the holidays, this is a great way to do so, as whatever you donate will go directly to the foster kids living at Hillsides (www.hillsides.org). Each foster child at Hillsides has given us a wish list of 3 items they'd like for Christmas and we've put these items on a registry at Target to make it as easy as possible for people to help.
To PURCHASE ITEMS, simply go to this link:
If you prefer to donate money, our KnockOuts will use that money to purchase the items for you!
To DONATE MONEY:
1. Go to: www.KO4G.org
2. Click on the tab on the punching bag to the right of the Home page that reads: Punch Here to Donate
The children living at Hillsides have been passed from one foster home to the next. Many have been physically, emotionally and sexually abused and most have been neglected. These children will spend their Christmas at a group home. They will wake up without their moms, dads, siblings, grandparents and relatives to watch them open gifts. Let's at least make sure they have gifts to open. Our KnockOuts wrapped all the gifts for the kids last year and taught a boxing class while we were there (we'll do the same this year) and the kids were so grateful, sweet and just amazing. Last year we got ALL the items on EVERY child's wish list!!! Help us give these deserving children another happy holiday!

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." - Marilyn Monroe
So young and so innocent. Here's a magazine scan from my very first photo shoot as a model. This was taken during my senior year in high school for Playboy Magazine. Yep, that was my very first modeling job. Read More & Comment
I have a close family friend named Joe who was involved in a freak accident six weeks ago that changed EVERYTHING about his life. He was taken by life flight to the hospital and he remains in critical condition. He was a busy Dad active in the lives of his 3 kids during the week and on the weekend you could find him riding his motorcycle in the country for some R & R. In an instant, that was gone. He has needed several pints of blood and it has become apparent to those close to him that the blood banks are experiencing a blood shortage. Children's Hospital is a trauma center for children who have experienced a life threatening event and they treat children in need every day.
If you live in Northern California, please support this blood drive to help Joe. The blood drive honoring Joe is in Modesto, California on October 30th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church, 4212 Dale Road, Modesto, California.
If you can't make it out the the blood drive, please take an hour this week to stop by your local Blood Centers of the Pacific or Red CrossBLOOD BANK to give. This is something that we all can do and it's a gift that changes lives. For Joe and the children at Children's Hospital and all of others that need our help, let's give.
- Donating blood is safe, simple and it saves lives!- Donating blood takes less than an hour and makes a direct impact on the lives of others.- Anyone 17 years of age or older (16 with a parent’s permission) can give blood.- You never know when you or someone you love may need blood – and there is no substitute for it.FOR BLOOD CENTERS OF THE PACIFIC:Go to bloodcenters.orgor call 1-888-393-GIVE.

There's a new study out of Syracuse University that says falling in love isn't something that happens over months of dinners, late-night talks, or walking hand-in-hand through the autumn foliage. Nope . . . it's basically the opposite.
--When you fall in love, it takes exactly . . . one-fifth of a second.
--When you're with the right person, the chemicals in 12 different areas of your brain hit the right balance and . . . there it is, that's the moment you're in love. It's just that easy. Read More & Comment
I know A LOT of guys hate on Justin Bieber, but I don't care. I think he's really talented. Watch this promo for his new movie. He's playing drums as a small child. Most people can't keep a beat like that as an adult! I'm officially a J.B. fan!
