First of all, I’m trying to take the student exam for the AFA (American Federation of Astrologers). Test is on the 20th, and I now find out that the sample test was e-mailed to me on July 26th! I was looking for the sample test in the mail all these weeks!. Now I have to find a librarian to proctor my test-which is just as well, as the astrologer who would have done so lives in Cleveland. I found someone who I trust, but I can’t actually know the person. I understand, but it’s frustrating to say the least-I have to find someone who will accept my mail and somehow convey to them that they should accept it and look for me the day of the test…aargh!

Next, I am doing a set of civics card-I’ve already used three 100 packs of cards-45 Presidents, 50 states, 27 Constitional Amendments, 15 Cabinet Positions, about 20 Independent Agencies, not to mention a set for the House of Representatives, Supreme Court, and Senate. Each branch of the Federal Government is a fiefdom in itself. I also intend to include Major American Wars, and if I ever have the patience, maybe an internation set that includes major International institutions.

The work on the cards has kept me calm through the Kavanaugh debacle. Reassured that he may not be confirmed, but if he is, he may not last long. That brings me to another rason why he probably shouldn’t be confirmed: I had a brother who drank himself to death. Also a feeling there’s a “dead body” vibe about him. Anyone who gets as violent as he does inevitable escalates. My brother was a self-pitying drunk, so we never feared that, but one way another things get worse with a drunk-especially one who never gets challenged on his drinking.
