Plans: Union vote, work 2nd shift
normally attributed to the (rather obscure) fertility goddess, Saeter (more correctly Saturn), we pray to Sibba/Sif and to Ing Fro/Freyr, lighting green candles (for fertility):
Sibba/Sif let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba/Sif, that we may do our work in the world. HAIL SIBBA/SIF!!
Ing Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of
pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!

Outcome: My brother and I went to the Union vote first thing this morning. It was poorly attended. The mood was very conciliatory. There was no fire in the belly; unlike the vote three years ago. I’m not quite sure how things will change, but hopefully for the good.
After the vote I picked up my bottle of mead to celebrate national Mead Day when I get off work!
My event on Facebook has been a rousing success! As of 12 noon the count is 3,062 people saying they will observe the event! LOVE IT!
This is no way to go to work…peeved…
Nah, she wouldn’t have done that, would she?
Work went fine; the stalemate between “the boys” continues with a possible breakdown in defenses from one.
The contract vote between the Machinists and Hawker Beechcraft was approved with 69% voting to accept. To accept the contract it took 50% plus one; to strike it would take a 2/3 vote. Two votes actually happened earlier today. One slip was to accept the contract another slip to approve a strike. A strike was easily avoided. Votes like this are always stressful, but approving this, I think, is a good step forward!
Final count for the 1st Annual National Mead Day: 3,084!

PM Prayer: Paltar/Baldr
Blameless Paltar/Baldr, shining god, let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and out leaving this life a tragedy. PALTAR/BALDR HAIL!
PM Rune: none
