Called for Jury Duty – The Dog Won’t Hunt

Just got an email from Gale telling me there’s a post card up there calling me to jury duty on August 21.  Gives me a good excuse to drive over to the County Seat, take a fishing pole along.  Nice little lake on one end of town and there’s no point wasting a trip.

Unless they’re crazy enough to select me to serve on a jury.  In which case some accused will walk free, some traffic violator will be spared a fine, or someone lawsuiting someone else will have to depend on the luck of the draw without my vote in his/her favor.

Ain’t nobody going to serve any jail time, pay any fine for anything at all on my say-so.

Although, I suppose if the right person happens to be snarling after the right other individual or corporation for the right civil offense the strength of my convictions might be sorely tested.  More on gut feel than evidence, though.  I try not to make unbiased judgements against my fellow humans.

So most likely I’ll get in some fishing.

Philosophy by Limerick: * A Corncob and a Lie

“Bend over and spread your cheeks,”
Aristocrat smirks to the meeks,
“Believe you’ll inherit
By pachyderm merit
Or equine, earth’s limitless peaks.”

Off the Subject

Hokay. I don’t discuss metaphysics much here and I’m not going to start doing it.  But I’m going to throw this in because it needs to be said.

I know all you Reiki folks and other practitioners of metaphysical efforts toward improvement of human health conditions are fairly hide-bound, closed-minded, stultified and mind-locked regarding why what you do works the way it does.  And I know a few of you read this blog.

So I’m going to suggest this to you even though your minds will immediately reject the entire concept of traditional or even quantum physics influencing the success or failure of your efforts.

If you visit spaceweather dot com and scroll downward in the left sidebar you’ll find Interplanetary Mag. Field identifying time of magnetopause for the dayFor the hell of it, clickmore dataand select a time to do what you hope to do when the BZ is nearest the centerline on the graph.

If you find it makes a difference you might scroll down further to the Geomagnetic Storms chart and look for days when the severe and active number’s lowest for your latitudes.

I’m not going to tell you how to do your own business and I have no intention to erode your faith in your angels and whatnot.

But if you’re ever feeling bored you might just give it a try and keep track of whether it makes a difference in your success/failures.

Meanwhile go on back to your angels and mass-consciousnesses.
