Mercury retrograde is a time for nostalgia and giving your home the retro look. It’s the ideal time to learn about local history or your family geology. It’s a good to get the 70’s retro look and listen to Fred Mercury’s music.

October is National Unawareness Month.

Relax. Sip mulled cider. Let domestic violence,
endometriosis, and asthmatic honeybees be
someone else's problems.

What? The month is half over, so you'll have to work
twice as hard at being unaware?

Sorry, it slipped our minds....

After the Sorceror fired him, Mickey lived near
a rundown strip mall. Waving his wand, he sent the
Broom for cheap supplies.

Soon it came back with:

Neversoft toilet paper
Old Wilted Roses plates
Captain Crud cereal
Regresso Soup
Banquit frozen dinners

I get a yen
Now and again
For nine or ten
Books on Zen,
But only when
I'm in my den.


My troubles start
When, at the Mart,
I try to part
With my cart.
I'll buy a tart,
And then depart.

Dmitri Gheorgheni

Shopping in Boston must be demented,
Where I live, tarts cannot be bought,
Only rented.

Dropping ashes on the Buddha,
Makes the cleaning staff
In a bad mood-a.

Bulk-bought wisdom is seldom a bargain,
But more handily quoted
With New Age jargon.

The instruments were being abused -- trumpets rusting in the rain, unruly brats pounding the piano's keys -- so the organ formed a union for them, and was elected president.

"I deserved to win," the loser complained.

"They don't trust you. You're a lyre."

Let us be above-board when choosing the Big Enchilada who will achieve black sky thinking for us during our 2 hour lunch. We must sing from the same song sheet to become the best of breed in column-shaking and in dialogue marketing
