Horoscope♉: 09/06/2019


You may put other people’s needs before yours, Taurus. There’s an important balance between being selfish and being selfless. Don’t sacrifice yourself to be a servant to others. It’s important that you not think only of yourself without considering how your actions will affect others. You may swing toward the former today. This will only lead to resentment and deplete your emotional and physical resources.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Holiday: International Camel Races

Today’s Holiday:
International Camel Races

The International Camel Races, the only camel races in the United States, have been held since 1954 in Virginia City, Nevada, the one-time mining town considered the richest place on earth in the 1860s. It was thought that camels could work like mules in the mines, but they didn’t last long; their hoofs didn’t adapt to the rocky terrain. There are some camels kept in town today, though, and others are imported for the races. The three-day race weekend now includes a Camel Hump Ball; a parade, including belly dancers and bagpipe players; and a race of ostriches pulling chariots.

Article of the Day: The Mary Celeste

Article of the Day:
The Mary Celeste

In 1872, the Mary Celeste, a brigantine merchant ship, was discovered drifting in calm seas in the Atlantic Ocean—unmanned and apparently abandoned. The crew’s disappearance is considered especially unusual because the ship was seaworthy when found, its cargo was still intact, there was an ample supply of food and water on board, and there were no clear signs of foul play. The case remains one of history’s greatest maritime mysteries. What are some theories about the crew’s disappearance? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

  1. 2 of 5

    It’s four in the morning, the end of December
    I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better
    New York is cold, but I like where I’m living
    There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening

    I hear that you’re building your little house deep in the desert
    You’re living for nothing now, I hope you’re keeping some kind of record

    Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
    She said that you gave it to her
    That night that you planned to go clear
    Did you ever go clear?

    Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
    Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
    You’d been to the station to meet every train, and
    You came home without Lili Marlene

    And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
    And when she came back she was nobody’s wife

    Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
    One more thin gypsy thief
    Well, I see Jane’s awake
    She sends her regards

    And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
    What can I possibly say?
    I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
    I’m glad you stood in my way

    If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
    Well, your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free

    Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
    I thought it was there for good so I never tried

    And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
    She said that you gave it to her
    That night that you planned to go clear

    Sincerely, L Cohen
