- I am glad that my weak words
Have struck but thus much show of fire from Brutus.

Venus moves — in apparent retrograde motion — from Aries into Pisces. More about that live — in Austin!

It's starting to warm up, right? Time for a new spin on an old favorite of mine: iced espresso. The trick is, I like mine bitter and cold, but with the current disposition of planets and the sundry influences? New idea, take it for a spin. Pour/draw the espresso, the usual double shot, over a packet of raw sugar, maybe a heaping teaspoon. Then mix, stirring in the sugar. Sweeten that bitter brew. Next, add a dollop of a favorite milk, 2 percent, whole, almond, soy, cocoanut, whatever is your flavor. Milk should be cold, chilled. Finally, pour the now temperate coffee solution over ice. This insures that this is gentle, iced, non-bitter brew, with just the correct amount of kick to make it work right. Consider this a jolt of “Happy Birthday Aries” energy, and while I won’t be making it for you, it’s my sincere wish that this kind of shot helps with birthdays, and the strange disposition of the planets.
Taurus:I’m rather leery of software that stores data in a “Proprietary Format.” I tend to think of that as “My data,” and the format? “Their access code.” At one time, I was adept enough at computer skills — I was good enough to be able to figure a way to access the text stored in a proprietary format. These days? I can’t be bothered. I had an option to switch to a new kind of software for one of my main tasks, and as I examined the reviews, “Greatest Ever!” Then the underpinning structure, up came that expression, “Proprietary format.” Spells trouble for me.
