Wintry Thoughts for December 13, 2010

Today is Monday December 13, 2010 and the US is gripped in Winter’s grasp in many regions of our nation with 8 days to go until Winter Solstice 2010. Yes, WordPress’ snowflakes across the page look festive and perfect for the season!

Now no one knows why the muse of bad poetry tends to light rather frequently upon my shoulder. If I could explain it I could probably stop it. But not today for I’m in a holiday mood that begs for snowy expression however minor it may be:

As wintry winds begin to blow
remember Mama told you so
your scarf and mittens are a must
to counter winter’s freezing gust!

jc 2010

And if you have a moment, you’ll find it won’t take a sled but only a simple click to discover my latest science-y/poem-y blog Woolly Mammoth Chronicles where I express in rhyme my personal misgivings about Science’s plan to clone from fossil DNA a long-extinct relic of the Ice Age, the woolly mammoth.

My ‘Odes to a Woolly Mammoth’ are the inexplicable result, plus, Science News links and odd videos are included as well so check it out and answer the woolly mammoth poll, upper right, if you wish to weigh in on the weighty woollie’s proposed return to ‘life’ – or to some Frankensteinian version of it.

Also, your feathers may be ruffled to know that my Political Astrology blog Stars Over Washington was updated this morning concerning the astro-atmosphere on Capitol Hill: this week’s lame duck session is marked by Monday’s Fire-Water combination of The Seeker and The Mystic!

The Winter Solstice 2010 horoscope is there as well: see sidebar for Top Ten SO’W posts which is where you’ll find my December 21, 2010 Lunar Eclipse article with chart image, too.

Hope you keep your feathers dry and warm! jc

Cat limericks Obama’s overseas tour

At last! Mr. A. Cat has gotten through to us at Lim’s Limericks with a freshly scratched limerick which seems to apply to Barack Obama’s recent overseas tour of presidentiness:

Snow Moon in Gemini comin’ Nov 24

 Moon Shining Across Lake

Here’s a smally post on the Full Moon of Nov 24, Moon 1Gem55, Sun 1Sag55:

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2007/11/crystal-pomeroy-says-that-upcoming.html

The chart in relation to America has me feelin’ droopy so my post won’t have all the info you may want about the subject, but of course this Full Moon (being a lovely Snow Moon and all)  will be oft’  revealed–your browser will have great difficulty missing it in various spots slathered over the ‘net for your perusal.

And you may wish to click above link to find Crystal Pomeroy’s ‘portal to the Snow Moon’ article, plus the chart for the Full Moon itself shining over the White House, 9:29:48 pm est, Icarus ascending.

Yet Moon stuff is cool even if you don’t do rituals and such.

And it’s quite poetic to read all the same, isn’t it? After all, the Moon was placed in our neighborhood to cast light in the evenings so that our paths may be lightened. Courteous!

And in honor of the season–and hopefully you’ll have a few root veggies roasting in a pan some chilly night–here’s ‘Limerick for Common Veggies’ which I published at http://judecowell.gather.com already…set the butter out:

The spicy little raddish

is not considered faddish

but take a bite

it’s always right

for lassie and for laddish.

The ordinary pea

exalted here by me

will do you good

it’s understood

by land or air or sea.

And then we have the leek

the vegetable you seek

snug in a stew

it’s tasty too

for lunch one day next week.

You know we love the beans

way down in New Orleans

with rice all brown

to toast the town

that knows what good food means.

Up North the spud is king

a broccoli-laden thing

with cheese or not

just serve it hot

and kudos soon will ring.

So steam your veggies hot

in saucepan or a pot

the joy they bring

is what I sing

and that says quite a lot.

Blackwater “investigation” successfully derailed

The Blackwater “investigation” has been successfully stalled by the granting of immunity to the gurads involved: http://my.earthlink.net/article/top?guid=20071029/472568d0_3421_133452007102988905091

and it’s okay to say, pshaw! if you like.

But Mr.A.Cat has more to say than pshaw! to say, in fact he’s in quite a huff over it–and over the fact no one will say under whose authority the immunity was granted to Blackwater guards!

So you may wish to overlook this nasty bit of limerick which I republish here with Mr.A.’s full permission, titled, Blackwater Kitty:

A kitty liked water so black

he flew all the way to Iraq

just give him a gun

Iraqis will run

while shooting themselves in the back.

–Mr.A.Cat

Droll kitty cat! Read his other fluffs and rhymery at:  http://limslimericks.blogspot.com
