Happy (Belated) Birthday, Björn Borg! June 6, 2017

Despite all my efforts on Tuesday–well, I started writing this on your day, dear Björn–it seems there was just so much I could do just to get this out before the day had actually passed. I didn’t make it, but at least you’ll know a fan thought of you and wanted to create this special

Manchester, We Mourn With You – May 22, 2017

“Music,” it’s said, “soothes the savage beast.” And if some 20000 who attended the nearly packed Manchester Arena last night in the United Kingdom had been able to tell you after the show was over, perhaps all but one of them might have believed that old, misquoted adage. As I write, the toll is at 22

Who Needs the Soaps?

I used to think the drama of a few daily soaps on TV made real life carry a bit less of the “wow!” factor. That’s what got me hooked on two soaps several years ago–and they still catch my attention in particular when I’m home. It doesn’t really matter if a month of soap opera

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 3 of 3

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 And now the Pluto station to Retrograde for the United Kingdom… With Leo rising, the Sun rules the Pluto SRx chart from its 9th house conjunction to Mercury Rx. Neither it nor Mars are really at the

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 2 of 3

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 In contrast to the crash chart from earlier in the day, this one had a clearly Eastern first quadrant below-the-horizon dominance. At first, I was baffled about this kind of dominance since the action was happening to my 16-yo co-traveler and me; but then it hit me: I

A Neptune and Pluto Day to Remember, Part 1 of 3

Sometime around Easter, I had promised someone I’d write about the Pluto Retrograde that took place on Thursday the 20th of April. But as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men–or, as Robert Burns wrote in “To A Mouse”… While the narration may seem a bit convoluted, there is method to

It’s A Boy! (A brief, fun news item with a chart)

At 38 minutes of age, April’s youngest calf stood successfully. A few tries to get the hang of it were enough for me to realize I was catching my breath in anticipation his learning to balance on the spindly little legs on which he will make his way in life. Now imagine this: I live

The Man and The Maths: Srinivasa Ramanujan

Last week, quite by accident, I came across a movie I might not have even bothered to watch. But who can resist Dev Patel especially when you haven’t yet seen “Lion,” another flick I’ve been hoping to see soon? Filmed in India and the UK, the scenery alone was marvelous. Patel plays the role divinely all the

April 7, 2017 – Attack on Europe, Attack on Sweden – Again!

We’re now in the midst of Mercury’s slow movement as we enter the path leading to the Mercury Retrograde in the Eastern (GMT and east of there) hemisphere on the 10th of April. Saturn’s station to Retrograde took place yesterday, the 6th. Over the next two weeks, Venus will return to Direct motion on the

The World Tapestry: Play Ball! Up Close and Local–and International!

Baseball has been pretty popular in this part of upstate New York. Two of my uncles, nicknamed Spider and Little Spider, played semi-pro ball, and the last thing my father did on the day he died was attend a ballgame of the Triplets, the farm team for one of the big leagues. If you were
