As many of us get through the challenges of extreme winter weather, Al Manning would say, “this too shall pass.” It is important to stay positive and forward thinking. Al knew that Life is Change.  Now, for those of us in the North American continent, Spring is just around the corner.  Let us welcome the pending Spring into our hearts and minds and then, before you know it, Spring with all its glory of renewal and rebirth returns.

Winter is here!   Mercury turned Direct  January 18th 2023                                    New Moon is on Jan 21, 2023

Mercury is now Direct.  Moon is new on January 21st.  Chinese New Year is pending… Spring is on the way… It is Time to begin again!!


Al Manning, founder of the ESP LAB, used to say, “What’s new?  Me!  I am always new and exciting.”  This dovetails with an affirmation from Dr. Al Fann, the actor who ran the Institute for Higher Mind—which was down the street from the ESP Lab in Hollywood when I lived there in the late 1970’s.  Al Fann would say, “I am unique, wonderful and extremely exciting!” Point is, that these positive attitudes can lead you to a better day and a more successful life.

I am happy to say that despite whatever challenges, the ESP LAB and I made it through the past year! Huzzah! Huzzah.  It was a year of the tiger which some say is a vicious year.  2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit, which starts on the Chinese New Moon of January 22nd, 2023 (Chinese New Year), and ending on February 9th, 2024 (Chinese New Year’s Eve). The softer sign of the bunny is a symbol of peace, prosperity, and longevity… along with fertility.  Let it be a better year for all of us.  2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.

History of Christmas


Christmas is celebrated on December 25 and is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate Christmas Day as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. December 25—Christmas Day—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1870.

Hanukkah 2022: When is Hanukkah and Why Is It Celebrated?


When Does Hanukkah Start and More Facts

When is Hanukkah? In 2022, this eight-day “festival of lights” begins on Sunday, December 18, at sundown. Learn all about Hanukkah dates, customs such as the nightly menorah lighting, and special foods.

What Is Hanukkah?

Hanukkah (also spelled “Chanukah”) is an eight-day winter “festival of lights,” which begins each year on the 25th day of the Jewish calendar month of Kislev.

Because the Hebrew calendar is based on the lunar cycle, the dates of Jewish holidays according to the Gregorian calendar change from year to year. For this reason, the beginning of Hanukkah can range from late November to late December.

In short, Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after a group of Jewish warriors defeated the occupying Greek armies.
