Gemini: Gemini Birthdays! Yes! Party! Happy birthday to that one, special Gemini. Old story, there. Don't have time or space for that tale, but I do have some happy birthday material for my little Gemini friends. Hillsboro, TX: the sleepy, little hamlet was thrust into the national spotlight some years ago when Willie Nelson (music icon, legend, Taurus, Space Cadet) was arrested for alleged drug possession. Other than that, the only remarkable comment I had for Hillsboro, it's between Waco and Ft. Worth on the Interstate, and it hosts the annual "Guitar and Gun" show. It's one of those uniquely Texas kind of event. Guitars and guns, where else would those two seemingly distant items mix so well together? Which makes it the perfect June celebration destination for Gemini. There is so much cooking in Gemini, and this week adds Venus to the fray. Mercury, Sun, Full Moon in Sagittarius, and Venus pops into Gemini. Need a new destination a little off the usual Gemini track. Pick one. Pick any. My suggestion is choosing something just like that Guitar and Gun Show. Two items that don't belong together. Perfect for the Gemini celebrations. This week, make it happen.
Cancer: For most of its history, San Antonio has been larger -- and the most cosmopolitan -- destination in Texas. Bigger than the other big cities, like Houston, Dallas, Austin. For most of the region's history, San Antonio was the largest city in Texas. It wasn't until the last hundred years or less, the other towns started explosive growth. I'd attribute it to "We got discovered." Folks figured out that the climate was good, the fishing was good, the hunting was good (if you're into that sort of thing), and the business climate was excellent. Maybe not so much anymore, but at one time, this was the place to be. Texas isn't really "southwest," and it's certainly not really "deep south," which leaves it alone unto its self. San Antonio, was, at one time, the center. "Remember the Alamo."
