Venue brings activity-based matching to Dayton Venue can help singles meet through mutually-enjoyed activities happening in Dayton By Victoria Ferguson What generally follows an interaction on Tinder, Bumble, and other dating apps, is a sub-par conversation with someone who probably sent the same cheesy pick-up line or lackluster “hey” to ten other people. You send […]

Sign Language: 01/16

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You’ve heard all about how weaknesses can be strengths, and vice versa, but you haven’t quite mastered putting the idea into practice. This week, let’s change all that. By trying to hide or protect that vulnerable spot of yours, you’re perpetuating it as a weakness, and setting yourself up for failure, […]

Farewell, friend Re: “OTB, so long, but not goodbye” by Jim Bucher; January 2, 2018; Vol. 15, No. 1 I can’t believe Jim Bucher is leaving! I saved Erma Bombeck’s articles about parenting to give to my kids someday, to show them how much I love them. I saved Buch’s columns to show my kids […]

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Cancers may be frequently inflexible sticks-in-the-mud, but you Capricorns are 50% more intractable. There’s nothing wrong with finding someone or something you like and sticking to it—as long as it works out. But what happens when whatever you’ve become attached or accustomed to simply isn’t available (like this week, for example)? […]

An impressive job Re: “The high stakes of ‘Molly’s Game’” by T.T. Stern-Enzi; January 2, 2018; Vol. 15, No. 1. It would never occur to me to watch the movie “Molly’s Game,” because it isn’t a part of my usual viewing. T.T. Stern-Enzi isn’t tied to a particular aesthetic though, and that’s what makes his […]

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Medical science doesn’t have all the answers. But neither does acupuncture or homeopathy, or whatever New Age claptrap you might ascribe to. But let’s be fair and realistic here; they probably all have some of the answers, and perhaps, when put together in the right way, you might get something like […]

Christmas Re: “It’s beginning to look a lot like solstice” by Tim Walker; December 19, 2017; Vol. 14, No. 51 I was glad to see an irreverent cover story about celebrations of the winter solstice, because I think irreverence is the only suitable emotional reaction to the holiday season. Not that a solstice is truly […]

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Surprise, surprise. One of those people who’s always opposed you has decided to speak up again this week to tell everyone how wrong you are. You’re used to this by now, so hopefully you’ll be able to defend yourself without getting huffy or petty. Making a good impression right now is […]

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) This week promises to be one of the busiest, astrologically, and the most dramatic, socially, this year. I see you quivering with dread, because if there’s one thing you’re not good at, it’s drama. There’s a part of you that already can’t wait for the holidays to be over with. However, […]

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) As you revisit half-forgotten haunts from your past, you’ll probably encounter pieces of yourself you thought you’d left behind forever. That’s part of the deal. Luckily, it’s not all bad, and neither are these old incarnations of you. Each of them has positives and negatives, and something to teach or remind […]
