Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, dear friends and enemies and maybes and do bees and don't bees!  How are you?  We've been feeling the heat lately, but it's supposed to drop into the 70's, and even the 60's,  the next few days.  And all heck is supposed to break loose today with thunderstorms and rain into tomorrow.  We need the rain.  We need a good, day-long, soaking rain.  Those cloudbursts that form in the heat just dump a load of water at once, and it almost all washes away.  But I could do without the thunder and lightning.  When it lightnings, I always fear a power failure.  I hate those because you never know how long it'll be until they restore power.  Even I have difficulty predicting when.  So you don't want to open the fridge or the deep freeze for fear of losing "cold."  Yet, I want to know if it's time to start storing my perishables in friends' refrigerators. 

A long time ago, I lived on Main St., just south of downtown and the power went out on our block only.  When I spoke to one of the workmen outdoors, he said a "fuse" blew on College Ave., and that's why we didn't have power.  OK.  That made absolutely no sense to me, but I wasn't going to pursue the matter. I just wanted the power back on.

I was going to spin that off somehow into a "discussion" of the upcoming Presidential election. Ha!  I'm not nuts!  There is no "discussion," only war, total war.  Either you're one of us or you're one of them.  Even I don't know who is who.  Shoot first, ask questions later.  And that's why there will be no discussion of that subject here.  Please keep your politics to yourself.  Either side, either way, it only gets ugly.

How did we get here?  Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton?  Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God.  I hear they're hatching a plot to oust Trump at the convention.  Yeah, right.  Sorry for sounding so cynical, but it comes with the times.  People are flat out nasty to strangers.  No one believes in the rule of law anymore, let alone the integrity of elections.  Stick your Golden Rule up your golden asshole.  As Rod Serling used to say on The Twilight Zone, "We are entering a new dimension."  Frankly, it somewhat scares me.  I think more and more decent people will shop online, thus leaving the majority of the jerks on the streets.  I don't want to interact with the jerks, but sometimes I have to.  In my line of work, a personal reading, or other services, may demand that I interact with a jerk.  Hopefully, a rich jerk.  I refuse to discuss politics during my readings or visitations.  It only leads to rancor.

For what it's worth, at this point I endorse neither Donald Trump nor Hilary Clinton.  Again, everything could change in a day.  Oh Lord, I wish there was a viable third party choice.  I wish there was an alternative to the current crop of liars and thieves.  I think Libertarian comes the closest to who I am, but I just hate "throwing away" my vote on someone who has no chance.  We'll see how things develop as the election nears.  I must say that so far, this has been an entertaining, if unnerving, Presidential campaign.

When I astral project, the word on the streets is that Machinery Row is DOA.  Not that it's a failure; many people have made a lot of money off of it.  Just that it's kaput.

Astral projections are tricky and not 100% reliable on information revealed.  It's kind of weird floating up there in like a bubble and traveling to places known or unknown.  One can time travel while astral projecting, but it gets a little tricky.  I prefer to stay on one plane when I astral project.

Well, thank you all for reading my blog today.  It "tickles me pink" to have visitors.  You don't have to turn colors, just read my blogs.  Thank you.  I love you.  You are family to me.

Family problems?  Ask

Enjoy the waning days of June.  Junior already has the house decorated for the 4th of July.  The 4th of July is his favorite holiday because it has both girls and music.  Watch out for rain today and tomorrow.  We're already 4 " below normal for this time of year.  It's more like we need a flood.

It is so nice to see you back Madame we really missed you. I agree with you that we need the rain but not the hail and possible tornadoes along with it.

Thanks, Mme. Z., for another enlightening blog.

When I lived back in the "hood," I figured on about two power outages every summer, usually during storms. That's why I got a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) for my computer. It's a battery that I plug my computer and monitor into, and then plug it into the outlet. If there's a power outage, the UPS beeps loudly while keeping up the computer and monitor long enough to shut them down properly. If for some reason the computer is on, but I'm not there when a power outage hits, the computer will eventually shut itself down via a program that came with the UPS. Batteries are expensive as heck. I just replaced mine: $40, and I have a small UPS. The batteries last 2-3 years.

Mme. Z., I bet you could keep a computer up and running with your good vibes alone. Thank you again for the blog.
