I was nosing around in some of y'all's profiles yesterday & noticed a suprising number of us are Aquarians. Hmmm... I'd speculate on astrology's influence on health/fitness, but HH is Aquarian too & he has no interest in any physical activity that doesn't involve a golf club (or...well...me >blush<). Jean, I also noticed you & I have a common affinity for quotes from Eleanor Roosevelt. Not that any of this has anything to do with anything, I was just musing aloud (so to speak).

Take care.

I was wondering if Aquarians like working out and chatting, too. I do calligraphy so I'm always collecting quotes and find a lot of good ones from Eleanor Roosevelt. Another favorite of mine is:

Great minds talk about ideas. Mediocre minds talk about events. Weak minds talk about people."

~Eleanor Roosevelt~

I think Aquarians attract other aquarians... case in point, My mother and father are both aquarians, I am one, my mom's best friend is one, many of my cousins are...

My bf is compatable as an aries and my best friend is my complete opposite as a LEO!

Somewhere I have a whole list of her quotes. Another of my faves: Beautiful young people are an accident of nature, beautiful old people are a work of art. (My apologies to the late Mrs. Roosevelt if I've forgotten the exact wording.)

In another strange coincidence, I used to do calligraphy as well, but arthritis has made it awkward. Oh, well. There's lot of other fun, creative things for me to amuse myself with.

I had noticed that too and was going to comment. Rather strange and somewhat scary. You know, I read a compatibility horoscope once that said that Aquarians teamed up together are an unstoppable force. I can SOOOOOOO see that here!

not an aquarian, but i did notice a lot of similarities in our profiles, particularly in "the best advice we ever got" - many of you choose what i basically consider another wording of the best advice i got or put down other advice that was also among the best advice i ever got -- despite our diversity we all seem to have a very similar outlook on life. i also noticed today that our highs and lows seem to follow each others - a couple weeks ago a lot of us were kinda low, but this week we are having all kinds of highs - jean with her skiing weekend, me with teaching and push ups/chinups, kiervin with finishing school and pullups, etc. etc., it seems like almost everyone is really up this week. i think we really feed off each other.

so while i'm being mushy i'll say that i really love this board and totally appreciate you guys, the feeling here is unlike any other internet community i've experienced - it's really more like a group of girlfriends.
