      I've never had any problems with my feet.

      Some people want to regulate away what they,
      personally, don't like, and there's a real danger in

      My fixed-star report in SolarFire 5 using the complete
      built-in list has my Moon not only conjunct Antares
      and Han, but also Kuma (Nu-1 Draconis).


      "At last" seems to be an apt description sometimes.

      I've always felt that since Serpens is in two pieces,
      Serpens Caput (the snake's head) and Serpens Cauda
      (the snake's tail), divided by Ophiuchus, astronomers
      ought to make them two constellations. They haven't
      cut up a constellation since Argo was divided in the
      18th century, though.

      SolarFire 5's list of the fixed stars from fifth
      magnitude up isn't an exhaustive one. I've had to add
      some of them manually in custom files.
