Old Austin Bit long-winded, but the right set-up about the old Austin, and yes, I was there. And in Austin this coming weekend, too.
Sandals Some folks wonder why I wear sandals as much as possible, and that merely gives rise to the notions of Bare Foot Astrology.
The Peripheral The Peripheral by William Gibson “Opportunities to do very badly were manifold. You avoided them. The major part in any success.” Excerpt From: Gibson, William. “The Peripheral.” Penguin Group, USA, 2014–09–25. iBooks. At some point in my life, I had one of those now-rare books, a first-edition, beat-up paperback of Gibson’s Neuromancer. As [...]

More like travel gear of a former road warrior – okay, more like semi-retired traveler. Think I addressed these very issues, previously. What I’ve arrived at is a simple system, really. When it is work, or astrology-work related travel, be it a day-trip to Austin, overnight to El Paso, or any other of the locations [...]

Including a bit from a favorite retail establishment, Costco, a New York Times piece about food secrets. Testing. Always testing for Food Safety. Personally, I figured some of this out from clients in Southern New Mexico, how, until recently, “Hatch Green Chiles” didn’t always come from Hatch, NM. Food Safety, how it changes, the last [...]
Legitimate question, How to Use These Horoscopes, the question, as it arises every so often. I once wrote about clarity, same concept, revisited, almost seven years later. With that as a question, How to Use These Horoscopes, what the new and improved answer? There was one place with a funny video about how to use [...]
While this innocuously titled Exercise Kit, what I really wanted to name it was Exorcise Kit. Got to remember this is for Grace’s haunted trailer. “You’ve slept in it,” she said, “you know it’s not haunted.” Her last daughter – also Leo – completing her first graduate degree, swears on all that is holy, that [...]
