Naomi Judd turns 64 on Tuesday. The country singer has been on somewhat of a comeback lately. Reuniting with daughter Wynonna, The Judds hit the road for The Last Encore Tour. The two have also launched a reality show on the new Oprah Winfrey network OWN. But her inspiration for glitzy country drag and high-to-heaven hair has never gone away.



Mars is very happy in Capricorn where the planet of energy and action is focused productively. Aspecting Uranus and Jupiter in Pisces, and Neptune in Aquarius, he can lose focus, but if you can stay on track while examining your process you can find new purpose and methods to strengthen your efforts.


CAPRICORN  Dec 21-Jan 19
Your sign improves with age, but exercising is important for staying sharp. Advice from friends should be heard, but not followed. It opens your mind to better possibilities.

AQUARIUS  Jan 20-Feb 18
Self-criticism is helpful if you don’t take it to extremes. There’s room for improvement and an honest assessment of your virtues and flaws will make you clearer on what you have to offer.

PISCES  Feb 19-Mar 19
You have to be very careful not to give too much of yourself. Have a long talk with a friend you can count on to be ruthlessly honest about your limits and how you should set them.

ARIES  Mar 20-Apr 19
If you focus, you can achieve great things. Meditation helps tame that unruly, dreamy mind and draw inspiration. Friends who want your time are a distraction. Or enlist them to help.

TAURUS  Apr 20-May 20
Ideas brewing in your head need a release. Getting yourself heard helps or hurts you. Discussing those notions with a friend will improve them and see best where and how to air them.

GEMINI  May 21-Jun 20
Explore your fantasies and bring them into your real-life lovemaking. Some of those dreams may need safety checks and adaptations to be performed in the physical world.

CANCER  Jun 21-Jul 22
Your fancy notions shock or titillate your partner. A discussion of limits is in order. Even out of the sack, your sweetheart can help with reality checks to help figure which dreams can come true.

LEO  Jul 23-Aug 22
Every relationship takes work. Take up the tough issues now while it’s a little easier. You’ll be surprised at what problems can be resolved in the bedroom. It will at least help.

VIRGO  Aug 23-Sep 22
Your intuition is clear now. With practice you learn to use it to better purpose in teamwork, practical or romantic. Trust those hunches in healing any kind of relationship — or finding one.

LIBRA  Sep 23-Oct 22
As onerous as family or community duties may feel, you accomplish a lot and gain influence. You’re creative enough to find a positive approach. Once you start there will be no stopping you.

SCORPIO  Oct 23-Nov 21
What you have to say is too important to be wasted. Polish those gems and share them where they are appreciated. A little imaginative probing reveals secrets or scandals.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22-Dec 20
Discuss your financial worries with a trusted person. You stumble on solutions or realize things aren’t as bad as you think. Clear your head of worry to think clearly about resources at hand.

At least that’s what it sounded like when she visited Oprah yesterday. She discussed her break up with longtime partner Kelli Carpenter and how they are handling and splitting the parenting duties of their four children. But Rosie has also found a new love in Tracy Kachtick-Anders, a Texas artist with six kids of her own. Rosie told Oprah she’s planning on moving in with Kachtick-Anders and do the whole Brady Bunch thing. Kachtick-Anders lives in the Houston-Galveston area.

USA Today reported from the episode:

“So you’re gonna blend the families?” asked Oprah. “The six kids and the four kids … ”

“Yes,” says O’Donnell. “Can you imagine?”

“No,” says Winfrey.

“I know,” says O’Donnell. “A lot of people can’t.”

Ellen and Portia give their first official interview today on Oprah

Together at last.
Together at last.

I dunno why it’s hard to believe that it’s only been a year since Ellen DeGeneres married actress Portia de Rossi. It’s even  harder to believe they haven’t been interviewed together since then. Perhaps red carpet interviews don’t count. Today, the power lesbian couple talk about married life and more on a very special episode of Oprah.

Oprah airs on WFAA channel 8 at 4 p.m. and rebroadcasts on KFWD channel 52 at 8 p.m. Now if anyone can TiVo this for me, that would be onlineраскрутка сайта анализ сайта

Don't forget Oprah comes to the Fair Monday

The big O is about to meet Big Tex.
The big O is about to meet Big Tex.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Oprah brings her show to the State Fair Monday. It should probably attract a few people. They are saying 4,000. Personally, I’d say a gajillion people but what do I know. Oprah seems to have that kind of drawing power. To top it off, Martina McBride will be performing as well. The deets on the event sound surprisingly easy considering the magnitude of her appearance in an already crowded place. However,  you need to know this now in case you have full intention of seeing her live.

The information follows the jump.
