Farewell, Dick Gregory, We’ll Miss Your Voice of Truth and Irreverent Humor!

Of all the voices out there when civil rights and race issues were at the fore, Dick Gregory was too. He confronted when no one else dared. He said the words when no one else could. According to one Washington Post journalist, Gregory “broke the mold” by venturing into areas that often made folks wince,

The World Mourns and Stands With You, UK, June 3, 2017, Part 2

This begins astrologer John Davenport‘s part of the article. I have done minor edits for cohesiveness while retaining the precise meaning John has intended. The choice of additional graphics in the form of art and videos was mine. Some charts used are repeats of those I used in Part 1. They’ve been repeated for continuity

The World Mourns and Stands With You, UK – June 3, 2017, Part 1

The Talmud says, “Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world.” (Mishnah Sanhedrin, chapter 4) ) I thought about these words last night. They seemed so fitting, it felt right for this article this

The World Tapestry – Throwback to Pakistan’s 2010 Solar Return

While this will appear to be somewhat disjointed–and perhaps it is–this article needs a bit of a prelude to explain what happened in the months between the August 2010 Independence Day celebrations for both India and Pakistan and when I finally posted the Pakistan 2010 Solar Return in late February 2011 even though I’d posted

Gourmet Cooking Doesn’t Use Cookbooks, It Creates Them

In the midst of a break this past week, one of the members of my site–I’ll call her Mignon to allow you to move more easily into the flow of this conversation–stopped to chat with me about a few things. The timing of our dialogue seemed to be synchronistic since I was watching a particular

Flashback to Challenger: No Safety Nets When You’re 8 Miles Up

That morning started out so perfectly, as most launches to outer space did back then, and the countdown went smoothly, “10…9…8… … … …5…4…3…2…1…and we have lift off!” (At least that’s the version I recall was said during launches although they may have added “mission control.”) The history is fairly well established, but I’ll share

Holy Terror, Part 1

I had only been studying astrology a little over a year when a tragedy hit someone close to me at the time. A complex tale, the person’s father, years before, had moved to a country far from his and his father’s birthplace. Over the course of the next roughly 20 years, the father had launched
