From"Decoded" The arrival

the book

I wanted to finish the book manuscript by my birthday. THE ROOTS OF MAGICK 1700-2000 was finished in manuscript about half an hour ago. It awaits typesetting, and a bit of proofreading, but it is done.

Tried to call Vick, but the cell must've been on vibrate, and some of us are suckers for vibration rather than speech, so, later.

Thanks to all who sent birthday greetings. Thanks to my sister-in-law and her husband for the card that informed me the good thing about getting on in years is the aliens won't want to abduct me. Well, I guess I'll have to be otherwise abducted. I can do better than aliens.

Last book consultations -- Royal Masonic Cyclopaedia, Magical Diaries of A.C. Tunisia 1923, The Confessions, the Blue Equinox.

Best discovery in book, other than the Frankist roots in the authentic tradition, the real meaning of Asiatic Brethren rituals.

The rumors about the paperless voting machines are starting to multiply. BTW, it isn't a 'mandate' to win by a hair. Eisenhower got a mandate. Johnson got a mandate. Nixon's second term was a landslide, so I guess it was a mandate, too, though he got booted out of office soon thereafter, perhaps because you can't steal a mandate, you have to earn it.

James, do you have the lyrics to "Goober Peas"?

No card or call from my son Alex ;-( I give it two weeks. Then he gets the call, completely in Yiddish on how come you don't call dad on his birthday?
