Releasing the Reins

Today is 12/5/12. It is, from one perspective, the middle of a quiet period. If you don’t count the moon or modern satellites, the last exact aspect was 12/2/12 and the next one will be on 12/7/12.

Overreacting

Show of hands - how many of you out there have a smart phone - the kind without buttons? OK, how many of you that said yes thumb type?
