Secret Blogging the rage

One thing about starting a brand new blog is that no one knows you’re doing it so you can say what you want for whatever reason as if you’re virtually free as a proverbial bird!

Glowing band-aids that fight cancer!

A UK company has been developing a light-emitting band-aid (check out the photo) that will hopefully fight skin cancer, a possiblility that knocks me out!

Good news on the medical breakthrough front is a welcome respite from contagious flu stories, isn’t it?

Placing my pre-order for a full-body poultice, if you please.

Foreign tax haven nix only a bargaining chip?

It will be a campaign promise by the wayside if Pres. Obama gives up his idea to nix wealthy corporations’ foreign tax havens. But is his touted attack on the skanky tax dodgers a mere bargaining chip in the health care reform political chess game?

Robert Reich thinks it may turn out to be so.

Seems to me it’s another ‘do the right thing’ campaign promise that turns out to be a mere campaign promise designed to hoodwink the masses into voting a certain way – especially if passage of a decent-for-the-people health care reform bill goes ahead but fails anyway.

Common-good politics. An oxymoron?

Republic of France natal chart now posted

If you wish, check out my sidebar column of Pages for a fresh posting of ‘France Sep 21, 1792’ which has an image of the natal chart of the French Republic, with a few Astrology notes included; data from public record.

Saturn now in Virgo is readying to tamp down several of France’s natal planets in 8th house, so be prepared.

Or the Task-Master may be planning to bestow long-lasting rewards for long-term efforts, the only kind Old Man Saturn recognizes!
