The Officially Ignored Link Between Lyme Disease and Plum Island - clip

A long time friend of mine was diagnosed with Lyme disease years ago but it took her doctors years to admit the diagnosis. So what does Plum island have to do with it? This report is for her:

Rhyme: The Saturn Return of Mr. Trump

September 8, 2018: Today was spent composing, typing, and posting The Saturn Return of Mr. Trump: Authority Challenged for Stars Over Washington which is why I shouldn't have been surprised immediately afterward when a brief, Saturn-infused political verse suddenly formed within my brain and I will consider it quite a nuisance until the rhyme is typed out loud and posted somewhere.

And of course, astrological Saturn is, among other things, form, as in, the creation of something that did not exist before. This can't excuse the following whimsy, merely describes or defines it.

Now usually I type and publish the political limericks of former secret agent Mr. A. Cat, plus, various political poems over at Lim's Limericks so the following effort published here instead counts as a variance upon that particular habit! Now don't you fret, dear reader, for the verse is so brief it will be over before it barely begins!

The Saturn Return of Mr. Trump

awaits him while he's on the stump

old Saturn just might kick his rump

the irresponsible Mr. Trump.

Summer Solstice 2018: Sun Cancer-Moon Libra

On Thursday June 21, 2018 at 6:07 am edt arrives the annual Summer Solstice, the DC Horoscope of which may be seen set for the moment the Sun reaches 00Cancer00, a Cardinal World Point of manifestation. The Moon (the public) is in Venus-ruled Libra, a sociable position for Luna. This blend of luminaries provides clues concerning the general cosmic weather of the day and for Summer 2018 which promises a season of perception, romance, idealism, and improvements in social awareness.

Intellectual powers of observation and expressions of divine discontent may also surface from the Collective Unconscious along with some people's natural sense of justice which may be satisfied or neglected as the summer season sizzles by, plus, the exotic or unusual may take a bow here and there. Detached attitudes will feel necessary at various points and 'alone time' will, as always, be prized for some while others use their lively personalities to beguile and gain public attention. Additionally, family life and patriotism (Cancer) blend with relationships, alliances, art, and diplomacy (Libra) on our Collective Summer 2018 calendar while the creatives types among us finish up their original projects for public display and appreciation.

Cautions of the conscious/unconscious Sun Cancer-Moon Libra combination of Water and Air energies include perfectionism which can lead to nitpicking, nagging, complaints, and dissent, and a leaning toward placing the focus on trivial details in order to distract by stirring up storms in tea cups!

A few famous natives who were born under the Moon-Venus influences of the Sun Cancer-Moon Libra blend include luminaries such as Alexander the Great, fashion designer Pierre Cardin (chart shown), Janet Leigh of Psycho fame (chart shown), Sylvester Stallone (ditto), and my favorite inventor of all time, the brilliant Nikola Tesla. Follow the link for an interesting video concerning Tesla and secrets hidden in Egypt's pyramids if you're curious); plus, here's a view of the natal horoscope of Tesla (RR: B).

Now don't be surprised if you hear one or two of their names and/or creations mentioned during Summer 2018!

The History of The Knights of Malta - clip

Update January 25, 2018: well, it turns out that the accusation of a secret society within the FBI was based on what now appears to be a 'joke'. Still, the following video contains interesting information for the curious. And no, this skeptic isn't totally convinced because there have been intimations of 'secret society' from the beginning of the FBI, the CIA, police departments (ex: the Klan), and other organizations since the spy agencies were created so perhaps saying it was only a 'joke' is one of those tiresome political 'walk-backs' we hear about. After all, occasionally inconvenient truths do escape from Washington DC!

Original post begins here:

January 24, 2018: in consideration of the current charges being leveled by the Republicans against the FBI as containing a "secret society" in league against Donald Trump, here's a brief presentation concerning one secretive organization, a 'nominee' which might fit the bill within the FBI, the CIA, and the US government...the Knights of Malta:

Or have a nominee of your own??

Jude's Rhyming Ode to Codgerhood!

Do you know the signs of age-induced codgerhood? Senior status creeps up on us all eventually so perhaps the following Ode may serve as a useful guide for pre-codgers who only think they know what to expect!

When your eyesight starts to fade

and it's too hot in the shade

you're a codger

When you want a chair that's cushy

just to satisfy your tushie

you're a codger

When your meds are piling up

and Mylanta's in your cup

you're a codger

When the president's quite old

and his policies too bold

you're a codger

When you vote just like a trooper

though your country's in the pooper

you're a codger

When your knees are feeling weak

so a heating pad you seek

you're a codger

When your ears are awfully crusty

and your memory too rusty

you're a codger

When your BP's on the rise

to your doctor no surprise

you're a codger

When you once were very groovy

like a hip cat in a movie

you're a codger

When your beard is white not gray

and your eyebrows fade away

you're a codger

When your double chin's a beauty

and you sport a wide patootie

you're a codger

When your boyancy is sinking

and your feet have started stinking

you're a codger

When your skin is rather itchy

then your singing voice grows pitchy

you're a codger

When your Dotage Discount Day

seems a few light years away

you're a codger

When your cheeks begin to sag

and your grand kids think you nag

You're a codger

When your head's a little lightish

and your waistband's way too tightish

You're a codger

When your doctor is a child

and your nostril hairs grow wild

you're a codger

When your trying harder lapses

and you've lost a few synapses

you're a codger

When your eyelids are so twitchy

and your side is rather stitchy

you're a codger

When your standing is unfit

so you think you'd better sit

you're a codger

When your hair is getting thin

recognize the shape you're in

you're a codger

When you say just what you think

which makes everybody blink

you're a codger

When your face is very rosy

and your walking speed is mosey

you're a codger

When a crone they start to call you

and it doesn't really gall you

you're a codger

When your lobes are drooping low

so those earrings have to go

you're a codger

When your bed's your bestest friend

then it's time this Ode must end

you are most assuredly a codger!

There are lots more Ode-ish rhymes where these came from but you get the point--so get busy 'cos your Time's a-wastin'!
