The “Ayes” have it: preview of November events

Thanks for all the replies to my question regarding a beginning-of-the-month preview.  I had many responses asking for the preview, one pointing out that I misused the term Daylight Saving Time, and one suggesting that  I use my copious free time to also include horoscopes, handy hints, NASA Asteroid Watch, and Kardashian news (thanks Michael).
