Mercury Retrograde and Almost a Bad Cup of Coffee

That was a close one. I just overheard that she was slipping in the bad coffee every third pot to get rid of it. We're in the middle of another mercury retrograde. Two more weeks.

From AstroProfile.

  • Communications go awry - phone calls, letters, emails, faxes, conversations are delayed, misinterpreted, blocked. Recheck everything like appointment times, spelling, wording, the words you say.

  • Anticipate detours - memory lapses, confusion, failing to listen, failing to confirm, negotiation failures, changing of plans.

Another day, another sports story. Barry Zito intentionally walked Ryan Zimmerman which contributed slightly to his 30-game hitting streak to come to an end. Zimmerman had three other at bats but couldn't deliver. Good to see Zito's arm is still solid. "Zito's fifth strong effort in a row should have encouraged the Giants," said Chris Haft of

And this from SI on Randy Johnson. "So I told you last week I wasn't wild about Randy Johnson starting against the Rockies again and he got hit hard. Johnson is showing the effects of age, but is still pitching better than a 45 year old would have 30 years ago."

On a positive note, I got through my morning workout while watching ESPN without a single mention of that banned substance that rhymes with Altoids. I did see a mention of it on but it's hilarious Manny Ramirez has gone from the masculine sounding "ManRam" to "Nanny" in one week's time. I've heard female fertility drugs can do that sort of thing.

Already this morning, Austin's air isn't looking too good. A PM-2.5 reading of 21 doesn't bode well for health. The folks in Tyler have the cleanest air in the state of Texas at a 1.2 PM-2.5. It looks like another bike ride indoors at the gym.
