DEAR READERS…..It has been a long while since I sent out a blog. As you may know, first I was hacked and lost all my Lists….stolen from my address book. I am slowly trying to organize these lists once again….so if you do not personally receive the blog, please go directly to www.conchtv.com and click on Lynda’s Daily Key West Social Calendar…and you will get everything you ever wanted to know about what is going on in KW and then some. The hurricane did not put anyone in the mood for partying and celebrating…..though, after a month….things here in Key West are looking up! LOTS going on and I have tried to include as many events as possible. We returned to KW on Friday the 13th…. and are glad that our house is standing…foliage damage….but that will eventually grow and bloom again. Driving down A1A was heartbreaking as we saw the devastation that so many in the Middle Keys sustained. You are in our thoughts and prayers and we hope that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. If you want to receive the blog personally, I ask that you please let me know and I will gladly add you to the list. I lost so many names….please understand.

WE REMEMBER…..Irma was a bummer but other sadness occurred in September. We lost several wonderful people…..David Herndon….Linda Rysman…Richard Manley…. and Linda Greenberg!

Remember, there are many reasons that we pray…not just because people are ill…. I do believe that when we all send prayers and good vibes to those in need, those prayers mystically meet and surround those being prayed for. Sometimes we pray for miracles and the impossible….sometimes we pray to just cope with the results of what happens to those we are praying for. Sometimes we pray for strength to go on and to accept…sometimes we pray for thanksgiving. We are in this thing called ‘Life’ together….and we all have power within us to help our fellow man. Bless you for remembering our loved ones….Prayer changes things! Let me know if you know of anyone who should be added to this list.

*** THE SCORPIO PERSONALITY…OCTOBER 23 THROUGH NOVEMBER 22 ***

I am starting this by saying that some of my best friends are Scorpios….as well as my very best friend, my dear husband Bob! They are an amazing group….terrific company and possess a fantastic sense of humor. That being said, Scorpios view life in a very emotional and intense way….and they find it very difficult to express profound feelings that they have. Scorpios keep their deep feelings buried under the surface. They have an innate need for privacy and secrecy making them reluctant to let people know how they feel. This sign is often viewed as being obsessive and it is true that a Scorpio takes things quite seriously. They are happiest when they are able to concentrate their energies in particular directions, because they need to feel emotionally involved in everything they do. Otherwise life loses its meaning and purpose. Once a Scorpio has made up their mind about something, it is very hard to persuade them to change it. They often have fixed ideas about all sorts of things and can take a very hard line over such topics as capital punishment and imprisonment. Despite a Scorpio’s natural loyalty, if you push them too far or double cross them in some way, they will never forget it and they will never forgive you. They will probably give you the cold shoulder to exact their revenge. It is wise not to get on the wrong side of a Scorpio! A Scorpio’s magnetic charm and powerful personality attract many fans. People love the fact that ‘still waters run deep’….and when a Scorpio is silent, everyone wonders what they are thinking and go to great lengths to find out. They know there is lots more going on under the surface than the Scorpio will reveal.

Love is an area that can cause problems for Scorpios as they take it so seriously. There is nothing superficial about members of this sign, and as a result they need relationships that are deep and satisfying. One night stand and brief flirtations quickly lose their charm…the Scorpio is looking for something more significant than that, and when they find it they will channel all their energies into it. They do demand a great deal from their partner, with love and loyalty at the top of the list. One big Scorpio problem is jealousy and another is possessiveness. If a Scorpio has been hurt in the past, it can be very hard for him to resolve these issues. Sex and Scorpio go together like bread and butter. They place such great importance on sex because it is such a good way for them to express their feelings. The best signs for a Scorpio are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo another Scorpio and Leo.

What a Scorpio does for a living must have meaning and purpose, needing to feel emotionally involved in their career. Otherwise they will feel unhappy and dissatisfied. They must believe their work is meaningful…nothing demeaning or boring for them! They will pour all their energies into their work wanting to do something that provides endless interest and stimulation.

Scorpios also love to know what’s going on…so they are the eyes and ears enjoying sharing the latest gossip and intrigue. It is important for them to get on well with their colleagues and that they work in a comfortable atmosphere. They need positions of power, even though it may be minor…..the thought that everyone else has control but them is devastating! Scorpios are attracted to law, science, detective work, medicine, research and the like. They also get great satisfaction from working in the wine trade…especially if they can attend lots of wine tastings. Scorpios need more money than most…as financial security is very important to them….they also enjoy the power that comes with money. Living comfortably is of utmost important to the
Scorpio…..In their hearts they know they should have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth…. And if they were not to the manor born, they will do everything in their power to achieve that status symbol. Investing and accumulating are important to the Scorpio…they are canny investors and love playing the stock market.

WE LOVE OUR MARVELOUS SCORPIO FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS!!!!!
