Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Today

Advent       Mercury retrograde       ≠ Saturnalia       🌙 waxing crescent moon

Long ago in my Corporate Clone days, I learned to wake up, splash water on my face, put on my glasses, look at my DayTimer and see what was happening that day. Then I'd grab some breakfast, shower, and get dressed.

I'd use that time to think about the day and do some planning.

These days there's an app to tell you your appointments. There's an app to tell you the moon phase. There's an app to tell you the seasons. There's an app to tell you what's in the night sky.

There just isn't an app to tell you all this in one place.

Unless you plug all the information into your calendar. And that sort of eliminates all the other apps.

That's one reason why I have the timetable page. Once a year I have to go through and put in the astronomical events, the moon phases, the solstices, the equinoxes, the midpoints, the Webtree fire festivals and solar festivals, and all the interfaith events that don't happen on the same day every year.

Since I don't have Jewish friends who live close, I gave up on the Hebrew holidays.

There's no easy way on the Macintosh to get to all those nice symbols. Yes, I know about "Show Emoji & Symbols," but it's not easy to use. Although I do not currently use astrology, I through those symbols in too.

Our computers are the wrong smartness, you know. All that information exists on the web, but I can't tell McFiach to search out that information and plug it in my calendar. Likewise, there is no easy way to plug that information into my blog entries except copy-paste. It's not difficult, it just took a while to work out the template.

But when I wake up in the morning, I look at my iPod touch and I know what's happening.
