If you are having a boy then his testicles will move into his scrotum during this week.

Week 26 Have a Laugh

“Hey I am pregnant!” The wife said with a smile as she stood on the weighing scale. “I  can’t see my toes anymore.”

“You mean to say five pregnancy tests, two ultrasounds hearing the heartbeats and three months of nausea didn’t convince you and your toes do?” The husband said desperately trying not to laugh.

The Good Old Days

An elderly man remembers the good old days:

“When I was young, my mom could send me to a shop with a single $, and I would bring back 5 pounds of potatoes,  2 breads, a bottle of milk, a piece of cheese and 10 eggs.

Nowadays that’s impossible – there are simply to many security cameras!" continue reading...

“Don’t flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. The nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.”

Your Fortune For Today
Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Try not to be smothering today. You may want to seek comfort in the company of others but find that this only produces grouchiness on the part of all involved. Curb your tendency to find fault in loved ones. Your best bet is to focus your energy on tasks you’ve had on the back burner for some time. Tackle projects that need special attention and the most discipline.

Sports and physical fitness activities should be an important part of your regular schedule. Even if this means a regular walk, think about adding some activity to your daily schedule. Later you may discover a new appreciation for people in your family, including the obligations and support they bring.

Friends or work colleagues could introduce you to a field of study that captures your interest. You’re ready for something new in your life, and the lecture series that has been suggested to you could turn out to provide just the stimulation that you need. Your creative juices are flowing and you’ll want to make good use of them. Writing, painting, and photography are all good choices for today.

A friend might be in such a dour mood that you wonder if this is the same person you know and love. During the day you might be tempted to try to analyze what’s going on, but this is apt to raise more questions than answers. Probably this is a case of too many problems hitting your friend at once. Don’t pry, but make sure your friend knows you’re there if needed.

It’s a power day for you, especially if you’re looking forward to something. Make a list so you stay on track today. You can get a lot done. What makes you feel most secure? What do you enjoy? Make plans to do things with friends who share your interests.

In spite of the leaps and bounds you’ve taken over the last several months, a slump could set in as you start to doubt your ability to attain your goals. A disheartening and unexpected setback may have occurred, but you’ve never let this sort of thing stop you before. Don’t fall into this trap now. Brace yourself, reassess your methods, and get back in the saddle.

Romance intensifies as communication is enhanced by the energy, enthusiasm, and focus of you and your partner. If you aren’t already involved, you might meet someone new and exciting who shares your interests, and perhaps doesn’t live all that far away. Expect to make a lot of short trips in your neighbourhood, perhaps visiting friends or neighbours. If you’ve been thinking of moving, you might do a little house hunting.

Act on your instincts today and you won’t go wrong. You may need to give up a bit of control and put logical thinking aside for the day. Let the wind take you where it wants you to go. Explore your mind and its interactions with others. You’ll find that it will be just about impossible to solidify any plans. You’re better off exploring options and comparing notes with others. Don’t pigeonhole yourself into one way of thinking.

It’s time to expand your horizons, especially if you’re feeling unappreciated. Volunteering for community service events or travelling to see new places can change your perspective in positive ways. Be confident enough to take a leap in order to chase your neglected dreams. But do this only after you have done some research regarding the field -you don’t want to jump in blind.
