  • Arnold Palmer – aggressive sportsman, nice human being

    1 Comment
      Arnold Palmer, one of the greatest golfers of all time who popularized the sport and turned it into a glitzy money-earner, has died. Born 20 Sept 1929 7.30am Latrobe, Pennsylvania, to a green-keeper father whose own golf ambitions had been thwarted by childhood polio, he spent his early years strengthening his arms by mowing greens manually. Commentators said of his  electrifying style. ‘He held a club like his life depended on it and hurled the ball off clubface like his arms were the cannon. ‘ ‘A grip that could strangle a bison.’ ‘His only thought was to swing as hard as he could and, when he found his ball, to swing as hard again.’. No surprises then, that he had …Keep reading »

  • Bruce Springsteen – running faster than ever

    No Comments
               Bruce Springsteen, ‘the ‘Boss’, American singer, song-writer and activist, is in his late sixties but still out on the concert tour (the present one is 75 gigs globally, each lasting three and a half hours and is his highest grossing tour ever, $135 million last count). He’s also just published a mammoth memoir Born to Run in an effort to shake off demons that have haunted him for years, including a ruptured relationship with his hard-drinking father. His father said “fewer than 1,000 words” to him through most of his childhood, he says in the book. “He loved me, but he couldn’t stand me. He felt we competed for my mother’s affections.” He’s very anti-Trump, pro-the …Keep reading »
  • Israel – Obama winding up for a parting shot?

    No Comments
      Both President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have been voicing forcible criticisms of Israel’s expanding settlement programme which they say makes a two-state solution to the Palestinian issue well-nigh impossible. The Times of Israel says: ‘Officials in Jerusalem have expressed concern that Obama will use his last few months in office (after the November election) to facilitate a UN resolution to impose a deal between the two nations.’ Though the liberal Israeli newspaper Haaretz says Netanyahu has won, having stood up against Obama so far, and the rest of the world is disinclined to get overly invested in the issue, given everything else that is going on. Obama’s relationship with Netanyahu is certainly on a downward slide …Keep reading »
  • Jeremy Corbyn – facing down the establishment

    4 Comments
             Leftwing Jeremy Corbyn has been re-elected as Labour leader (UK Opposition), with 61.8% of the vote, a larger margin than last year, in a poll forced on him after more than 170 MPs supported a motion of no confidence in him. Though it’s not clear what comes next since only about 20% of Labour MPs support him and he is regarded as holding to an old-fashioned, marginalised, leftwing ideology. The result was announced at 12.51 pm in Liverpool today which puts a successful Sun Jupiter in Libra in the 10th square Mars in late Sagittarius – so a touch reckless and over-confident, can be self-aggrandizing, hypocritical, revelling in arguments, fanatical. There’s an intense 8th house Cancer Moon opposition …Keep reading »
  • JonBenet Ramsey – from a Mars Pluto family

    2 Comments
        JonBenet Ramsey, the miniature beauty queen murdered 20 years ago is back in the news with TV and chat show reconstructions of her death and theories about whodunnit. Her brother Burke is suing over suggestions he hit her with a flashlight, aged nine, and his parents staged a cover up. The family initially reported a kidnap and the house was over-run by police setting up for a ransom demand; and when the body was discovered, it was moved by the father, further contaminating any evidence that may have been left. The initial call to the police was deemed odd and rehearsed, as was the ransom note. The parents John, a multi-millionaire business man, and Patsy, now dead, were …Keep reading »
  • Daniel Wozniak – loser whose greedy envy cost two lives

    1 Comment
      Daniel Wozniak, a community actor, has been sentenced to death for the murder of Sam Herr, an Army veteran, whom he killed to steal $60,000 for his wedding/honeymoon cruise and to pay off his debts. He dismembered the victim’s body, and then cold bloodedly planned and murdered a girl friend of Herr’s, staging her death to look as if Herr raped her to throw authorities off his trail. Just grim. He was arrested the day before his wedding. Born 23 March 1984 (internet sources) in Long Beach, California, Wozniak is an Aries Sun square Neptune Jupiter in Capricorn – so impulsive, over-confident, lazy, delusional, fond of money. His Sun was also inconjunct Pluto in Scorpio, giving him problems with power and …Keep reading »
  • Angela Merkel – stalwart for Germany & the EU – what happens when she goes?

    No Comments
      Angela Merkel swallowing her party’s second electoral defeat within two weeks and apologising for her migrant policy, seems to be hinting she’ll stand again in the German Federal elections next autumn. She’s certainly been a blessing for Germany with her Jupiter Mercury conjunct the Germany 1871 MC and her Sun Uranus in the Germany 10th. And much the same for the EU, where she’s been the de facto leader with her Sun Uranus Jupiter Mercury falling in the EU 10th. Though tellingly her cautious, conscientious Saturn in Scorpio falls in the EU 2nd, conjunct the EU pie-in-the-sky Jupiter Neptune, so she has put the brakes on their wilder financial fantasies. For all her protestations about continuing for another term, …Keep reading »
