Oh, to be a Sabertooth Tigress
Late Night Yowls and Howls, my tigress fierce KitKats.... a clear cold day on the tame prairie... but, hey, the sun shone brightly for a change. Do you believe it? The month of March is here. That means Spring is about three weeks away... wahoooo-meow!
Oh, to be a Sabertooth Tigress... what about this thought that leapt in the Kougeress’s mind? Well, that’s easy stalking peasy... after reading a recent science article about how the jaws of a sabertooth tiger worked... and with the world the way it is right, being a sabertooth tigress would be a decided advantage... plus, this Big Cat is penning a flash scene for SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS that stars her Tigress Shapeshifter.

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano
Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...
Angelic Forecast ~ #130
For the following week, and several weeks afterward, ‘fire’ is likely to be one major theme around our beloved planet, Earth. Both, the destructive force of fire and the beneficial uses of fire.
Fire Rising in the Soul. The Fire and Fury of War Drums. The Fire and Ash of Land Changes. The Lightning Fire and Roaring Storms of Weather.
While the flames of anger escalate and race around the globe, our spiritual flames soar ever higher as humanity reaches for a golden age.
On a personal level, now is the time to use your Inner Wisdom. Take time to gaze at the reality around you. What actions do you need to take to remain safe, fed and warm? To care for all those you love, and those who love you?
At this time, new dimensions of love are being revealed, and felt. This new awareness of LOVE will be acted upon and begin to spread like an embracing wildfire.
To counter this LOVE, the dark force will release such a black cloud of evil it will appear to obscure the light of goodness. Divide and conquer, that will be the main strategy used against every strata of society. False enemies, false targets will be provided in such a convincing manner many will be fooled.
On the bright side, look for new alternative energy sources. On the horizon there are several that can transform our world toward THE GOOD. These new energy systems are not likely to be on the commercial market, however. It is more realistic to discover them by word of mouth.
On the trend scene, as has been mentioned, what is old is now new. Skills and crafts necessary for life in the 1800s are being revived. Take advantage of all the old timey knowledge available. Choose what suits you and go for it. There is a great deal of soul satisfaction to be had. And, in these times, such knowledge will become invaluable.

Oh yeah. Baddaboom, baby. After years of skuzzy jobs in even skuzzier dives, Mrs. Delavecchio’s little boy Louie had finally hit the big time.
I mean, just take a whiff of the place. Grease and veggies, veggies and grease. A rat’s paradise. Rats wore their wealth on their middles. You could tell how rich a rat was by the size of his belly. Louie patted his ample gut with a sigh of self-satisfaction. Look at that prosperity. Donald friggin’ Trump. Not bad for a guido rat from Jersey City.

Your March Forecast is Here!
Dream Big This Spring
Sitting at the end of the zodiac, dreamy Pisces could not be more opposite from action-oriented Aries at the beginning. So when the cosmos shine spotlights on each of these signs -- as they will this month -- you can bet that your life will get quite interesting!
With the Sun in Pisces until March 20, a Piscean New Moon occurring on March 4 and Mars in Pisces for the entire month, the start of the coming month will be all about the Fish. You'll feel extra imaginative and intuitive, and taking care of practical chores will be the furthest thing from your mind. Add Pluto to the mix, and you'll feel blessed with sharply honed instincts to help you recognize -- and solve -- deeper problems more easily.
Venus will transition into Aquarius on March 2, where it will remain for most of the month. This move will get you networking and socializing, while also offering a nice respite from the Pisces/Aries dichotomy. However, by March 9, Aries will start to gain ground in the cosmic tug of war once chatty Mercury moves into the take-charge sign. You won't have any problems speaking your mind, regardless of the consequences! Just be especially careful between March 13-18, when Mercury will remind us what mercurial really means: Opinions and moods at this time will swing wildly back and forth!
The biggest astrological news of the month will occur on March 12, when Uranus finally ends its seven-year journey through Pisces ... only to begin a new seven-year course through Aries. Expect sudden, unexpected, rebellious and life-altering change at this point! And when Uranus is paired with proactive, energetic Aries, you'll definitely be craving excitement. Indeed, this is an ideal opportunity to let go of previous -- and likely unnecessary -- restrictions. Try something daring!
Come March 19, take advantage of a brief rest during the Virgo Full Moon on that date. As the Sun moves into Aries on March 20, it will join with Uranus in a conjunction that will activate already intense energies. Unwilling to compromise and looking for quick results, you may be tempted to act rashly, regardless of how it affects others. Keep in mind, however, that this brief transit could leave you full of regret if you burn the wrong bridges - so don't go overboard trying to get your way.
As March ends with the Sun squaring Pluto and an Aries Jupiter opposing Saturn, you'll experience some unsettling feelings, as if your world is shrinking and expanding at the same time. Be cautious, but persevere as you push against restrictions and remain persistent.

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 791 ~
Sylva blushed with her good feelings. She wasn’t sure why. Maybe, it was all overwhelming to her. This kind of freedom to be herself. “Thank you, everyone.” Suddenly shy, Sylva took a sip of her wine. “Everything’s ready,” Ginger announced brightly. “Why don’t we sit down to dinner. Zeke you can say grace.” Lazily stroking her shoulders, Zeke ushered her toward an oblong table. Set simply but beautifully, covered silver dishes waited for them. “Come on, darlin’ mine. Our first official dinner with the family.” After a grin at her own nervousness, Sylva uttered, “You would have to say that.”
Zeke pulled out his Sylva’s chair. “What?” he joked. “What did I say?” Hugging her shoulders between his palms, he kissed her temple. “Official,” she murmured. “Don’t mind me,” she softly continued, “I just have a sudden attack of shyness.” Once Grant seated Marina, his sister gazed at Sylva. “That will be refreshing since none of us have that proclivity. I do mean that in a nice way.” His wife sat, settled herself, then gazed at his sister. “I know. My gosh, you all do believe in the healing power of silver, don’t you? I know Zeke talked about it.”

Darpa’s Cheetah-Bot Designed to Chase Human Prey
By Adam Rawnsley
February 25, 2011| 1:03 pm|Categories: Bizarro
Perhaps you thought the four-legged BigDog robot wasn’t eerily lifelike enough. That’ll change soon. BigDog’s makers are working on a new quadruped that moves faster than any human and is agile enough to “chase and evade.”
Boston Dynamics, maker of the Army’s BigDog robotic mule, announced today that Darpa has awarded it a contract to build a much faster and more fearsome animal-like robot, Cheetah.
As the name implies, Cheetah is designed to be a four-legged robot with a flexible spine and articulated head (and potentially a tail) that runs faster than the fastest human. In addition to raw speed, Cheetah’s makers promise that it will have the agility to make tight turns so that it can “zigzag to chase and evade” and be able to stop on a dime.
Cheetah builds off work on the company’s previous four legged animal bot, BigDog. It was built as a kind of unmanned pack mule, designed to carry equipment for troops on the battlefield. The robotic donkey could carry 300 lbs. over 13 miles on flat ground, take a swift kick and keep on moving. It’s creepy, lifelike movement can be seen on a number of videos online, climbing over hills and snow and hiking alongside soldiers, using GPS coordinates as its waypoints.
Aside from its unspecified military applications, Cheetah’s makers see it galloping to the rescue and building a brave new future in the fields of “emergency response, firefighting, advanced agriculture and vehicular travel.”
Think that’s creepy? Wait till you see its humanoid, Terminator look-alike buddy.
Meet Atlas, Cheetah’s humanoid pal. Atlas is supposed to look more or less like the T-800 series of Terminators, minus the head. Its designers say it’ll be able to walk like a human over rough terrain, crawling on its hands and knees when necessary and turning itself sideways to slip through any narrow passages it encounters. Headless, with a torso and two arms, it’s a step up from Boston Dynamics’ other biped, the lower-body-bot Petman.
Petman was built to test out chemical weapons protective suits for the Army by “walking, crawling and doing a variety of suit-stressing calisthenics” and “simulat[ing] human physiology.” Designers made it capable of walking heel-to-toe at 3.2 miles per hour and staying upright even after it gets pushed.
As the new models go into development, let’s hope Cheetah never develops a taste for human flesh and that Atlas doesn’t have any hard feelings about its predecessor being a poison-gas guinea pig for the Army.
The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

May you live the dreams of your heart...
