Horoscopes for 10.18.2018
While I certainly spend much less time traveling
from town to town these days, I have, in the past, spent many years waking up in strange motels. Over the years, I’ve grown accustom to pitiful coffee service devices in motel rooms, with the emphasis being on weak, pre-packaged coffee of one stripe or another. Last motel I was in? Usual Mr. Coffee knock-off with “Guaranteed Fresh” pre-packaged ground beans. The package was for 2 cups of coffee, the coffee maker was for 8 cups. There were matching packages of regular roast and decaf
. I opened up the single-serving
, two-cup for regular then I added the same for the decaf
, in other words, it was four cups of coffee, half-caf, half-decaf. Then, in the coffee maker, I only added four cups of water, despite being able to handle eight. This might appear to be some kind of recipe for disaster, but I was just trying to arrive at a serviceable cup of coffee without halving to think too hard. While I do tend to believe that “Decaf is the work of the devil,” this match yielded about two good mugs of coffee that tasted OK, and certainly tasted better than usual motel coffee. It is about making allowances and with the current Libra
birthdays, the allowances can be a simple trick like using that package of decaf to obtain the fullest flavor from the regular coffee. Emotionally, it delivers the same punch. Given the nature of the season? That works.
The three R’s? Risk. Reward. Ratio. There is an easy way to calculate this, the way I recall it? Risk. Reward. Ratio. Coastal fishing in October, right before the Sun hits Scorpio? Risk? A quick glance at the weather shows there is minimal weather complication. Reward? Either a big cooler full of fresh fish, or an excellent and relaxing day on the water, or both. Ratio? On that one? It is win-win, near 100%...
