I put on the news this morning and watched as throngs of shoppers waiting on a very long line in front of the main Apple store here in the city in anticipation of iPhone 5. Camping out, and making new friends with people of like mind, shoppers have been here for days. Elsewhere around the world, in earlier time zones, people already have their new phones. As for me ... I currently have a two year old Samsung Epic (now considered obsolete and which I never loved anyway). I am not eligible for an upgrade until November. My Sprint plan can finally use the iPhone, and look forward to my upgrade (iPhone 5) for whatever time remains. I doubt that I'll buy it in Mercury Retrograde, so it will have to be in December. What I most look forward to is Siri - voice activated commands. Time to have some fun as the world goes crazy.

The Jesus Memo
I don't understand what all the fuss is about. Is this about Jesus having a bloodline?
The answer from a reader of this blog ... Jesus was supposed to be pure and celibate - just like the priests. This is a really big deal to the church. Goes with the superiority and sanctity of men. Jesus could come down and say he was married and the church would never believe or accept it. Bad for business. Would claim it was the work of the devil. Many metaphysical Catholics have always believed he was married to Mary Magdalene, his favorite disciple, fellow scholar, and from a wealthy family. The church turned her into a whore. Typical patriarchal garbage. All so much b.s. Like all other facets of the program, it's about money, power, control and manipulation.
