Daily Horoscope



Scorpio – InfoSpace

Well I’m glad I bought my ticket for Mexico last week and I bought my ticket for my reunion today. Good thing I suppose…or maybe the astrologers are taking money under the table from travel companies? Hmm…my suspicions are rising!

“You’re ready to travel, to take off for somewhere you’ve never been, possibly even with someone you’ve never traveled with before. Well, regardless of whether it’s a different state, a different coast or a different country, you’d better make up your mind quickly. In 48 hours, Mercury, who’s in charge of travel and communication, will be retrograde, making all those plans quite tricky. Ready? Or not?”

I did my part

About 10 years ago I had an idea for a website where I would post my crazy ideas, inventions and philosophies to the site and let people take them for free -with one catch. They had to let me know their results. I didn’t want money I just wanted to know if it worked. Now I should say that while I have a science background, my interests can fade and switch so fast that some random exciting idea I had will be boring 5 seconds later…so I have studied lots of little things, but I never took a dive into the meaty material of many subjects. So many of my ideas could be easily proved as flops…but I don’t feel like researching :)

I then expanded the idea for the website to be an idea depot of sorts for people of all sorts to share ideas alike. Maybe there was a student looking for an idea for a science fair project or some company looking to dump money into R&D. I donno. Within one year I found an advertisement for a website where people bought, sold and traded their ideas royalty free. No need to start up a free exchange of ideas on a website when someone else found a way to market and sell it. That company is now long gone…

Well not too long ago…well okay last year I decided to post part of one of my crazy ideas to my blog. I was supposed to start posting more and more, but I never got around to it. Idea #1: Alternate power source: would lighting work?.

Interesting enough someone was searching the Internet Sunday for just such information and found my blog. A young girl from Canada had an assignment to look for someone with an opinion on lightning as an alternate power source…so in a small way I helped her with her homework.

That put a big smile on my face this morning. :)
