horse astrologyChinese astrology Year of the Horse 2014

– a year full of true spirit, grit, determination, vitality and endurance.

Known as the year for leaders, 2014 is set for those who want to make a difference and know how to make it happen. This is the year full of immense turning point that opens a new period of fate. The horse will lead us to this new period, a leader that is committed 100% to his responsibility and get the stage ready for the next 25 years.

The Year of the Horse will continue the wrath of 2013. Earthquakes and floods will occur worldwide while weather patterns continue to change triggering a lot of calamities. But 2014 will also be a good year for carrying out psychic research as new techniques are developed to record paranormal phenomena.

People who cater for alternative medicine will have an increase of demand for their services and more people will crave for more peaceful existence. This will be the year where people will get together to help and give support to each other, a communal living but without the hippy element.

People who are born under the sign of Cancer, Pieces and Scorpio are going to enjoy the things that mean so much to them such as friends, travelling, romance and even learning a new language. For those who are born under the signs of Leo, Aries and Sagittarius will be more focused on their careers and responsibilities as the money-making potential for this year is huge for all of them.

Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are more aware about the progress of their relationships and changes that will lead them to happiness. People under this sign will have more open communication with their loved-ones and those who have kept secrets from them in the past.

sault blues society

Holger Petersen, host of CBC Radio’s Saturday Night Blues, gives us the goods on his top 5 blues albums of 2013.

And if you’re looking for more, check out our full top five albums list, by genre, for 2013.

1. North Mississippi Allstars, World Boogie is Coming (Songs of the South)
This two-CD set includes a video documentary. It’s fresh and traditional at the same time, keeping the Mississippi hill country sound alive with distinctive guests Robert Plant and Othar Turner.

2. Buddy Guy, Rhythm & Blues (Sony)
When he’s motivated, Buddy Guy never fails to set the bar for both talent and intensity in his performances. Listen to his 27th studio album, Rhythm & Blues, below.

3. Eric Bibb, Jericho Road (Warner)
Moving from strength to strength, Eric Bibb continues to expand the blues and roots music genres. His songs of freedom and hope ring true during these spiritually tough and cynical times. Watch an interview with Bibb about his exceptional album, below.

4. James Cotton, Cotton Mouth Man (Fontana North)
It’s so great to see James Cotton still at it, and getting the recognition he deserves. A pioneer who plays with deep passion and joy.

5. MonkeyJunk, All Frequencies (Warner)
A band that combines great playing, vocals and strong material with creative arrangements, while still leaving room for improvisation.

my two cents

DONUT STOP – Dont let the name fool you they bake their own great old fashioned cakes, Pies, Butter tarts ..yummmmmm
Every Sunday I hanker for a good old ‘full breakfast’, and ultimatly I head down to Jude’s Donut Stop at 2nd line and Goulais Rd. $7.25 gets you fresh home made baked bread toasted, 2 eggs, sausages, home fries and coffee. All of it delicious with nice friendly service. and did i mention free WIFI. C’ant be beat. Give it a spin.

TANDOORI GARDEN ( Old Mary’s lunch)
North East Indian Chefs, Khan and Reana do nothing but please the customers. This is great tasting ethnic fare we northerners dont often get a chance to taste. Even in ”little India’ Toronto you’d be hard pressed to find this level of kit.
