Today’s Birthday (03/24/13).

Good news travels fast, with a communications flurry in the summer. Use your network to build a groundswell of action. Research, introspection and study lead to new perspectives. Family and home keep you grounded. Customize your space after summer to suit evolving needs. Play with those you love.
