Get ready to hum the lyrics from the song, "Get Happy!" You can forget your troubles, and get ready to chase all your cares away, because on October 9th Mercury retrograde is officially over. The planet Mercury goes "direct."
The 2016 presidential campaign has been a real eye-opener for sure, with the Republican Party's effort to recapture the White House hijacked by flavor-of-the-moment "outsiders" like Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, who've dominated the polls.
It's almost 2016, people. By this time next week, drones will be carrying us to work and cars will be driving themselves. Yet, everywhere you look, most of us are still racing like rats and herded sheep to get to the office by 9:00 a.m. And for what? To punch a clock?

Almost three years have gone by since the horrific Newtown, CT shootings, and here we are again: Ten dead, and 20 injured in Oregon.
