Am I Really a ‘Bad Actor’?



Facebook thinks so

This issue began when I posted a blog about why I was quitting Facebook. As is my want, I tried to share it on Facebook so that my friends, family and acquaintances would know why I wasn’t there anymore. (I know, I know: not a very well thought out plan…)

Almost instantly, Facebook said that it breached their community standards and therefore could not be seen by anyone but me on their platform. OK, I thought, so be it.

But then, I decided to give it another go, this time with a different blog. (This was a few weeks later.) Using the WordPress link at the bottom of the post, I clicked Facebook and was met with a note that my posts had been blocked because they’d been reported as containing abuse. Abuse?! Really?!

And this ‘ban’ includes Messenger

OK. I’m one of those fake news perpetrators now. So that’s interesting…

Are You “Fed Up” Yet?


I’m Fed Up to Here…

(Draws hand across neck).

When I was a child my mother used to ask me if I was CFRB. They were (and still are) the call letters of a radio station in Toronto. When I wondered what she meant, she said “Chocked Full Ready to Burst”.

So, my whole life, I have understood what ‘fed up’ means. That’s all!

Can You Decipher a Mystery Stone?



This month a village in France is offering a reward for anyone who can decipher the words on a rock in their harbour.


Like all good mysteries, the solution can be a simple one. In this case, it would appear that the hieroglyphics carved out on the rock are a local Breton variation of English words. But I expect the ‘experts’ will have a field day with this ‘Rosetta Stone’.

See if you agree:



The video (above) shows far more detail, including what looks like a church symbol, as well as a heart symbol. If the dates are correct, this could have been a ‘manifesto’ of support for the French King Louis XVI. Or, more likely, a simple memorial for someone who died there, perhaps a long-lost love…

At any rate, the reporting of this mystery has been too little, too often. Everyone has used the same exact phrasing, and the same photos. Making something from nothing, again?

A Peek Into The Future


President Kamala Harris?

Now, wouldn’t that be something? Although it seems like a long shot now, we don’t know what’s going to happen in the next eighteen months. Or do we?

In my daily requests to the Almighty, I included one recently that asked for a peak into the future to see how the next American Presidential election would turn out. (And because I’m Canadian, this might seem a strange request…) Yesterday, I got a message from a fellow astrologer, Steve Kinsman, who asked me to calculate the start of the “Next Presidential Administration” (January 20th, 2021 @ 12:03 pm in Washington, D.C.). Wow, request answered!

But there is one small niggle: would a permanent Daylight Savings Time have taken effect? Steve didn’t think it would be in place by then, so I did as he asked, using Standard Time.

The chart that I produced seem to hint at a female hand guiding the wheel of state and so I made a psychic leap and thought of Kamala Harris. Then I slept on the idea.

This morning, I came to the realization that the DST question was actually in play, so I redid the chart with that in mind. Here it is…


Yes, that is the Moon conjunct the Ascendant. And the conjunction between Mars and Uranus is symbolic of ‘lightning striking’. The planets all being in the upper left quadrant of the chart reminds me of another chart, which I’ll get to later. But that Moon in Aries seems to rule the chart. Then I compared Kamala Harris’ chart to this one.


Harris’ Moon is within one degree of the Admin’s Moon. I think we have liftoff!

(By the way, even if we still had Standard Time then, the Moon would have influence, but only as a 12th House undercurrent. Who would have thought one hour could mean so much?)

Now, to that other chart I mentioned. I had to look it up from memory, but I found it: the First A-Bomb Dropped!

Let’s hope this next Presidential transition doesn’t blow up in everyone’s faces.

(And, don’t forget: you had a peak into the future here first.)

As Personal as the Taste of Beer

My wife and I have a difference of opinion: I think I’m funny, and she doesn’t.

Her crew like slapstick comedy, I like biting wit. That equates to sweet and bitter: lager vs ale. But that just lets us know that we both enjoy humour, just that our tastes differ.







What’s your taste in humour?
