Today is the 17th day of Athyr/Hethara in the ancient Egyptian calendar, marking the death of Osiris. This one's going out to stalwart Secret Sun supporter Jason- "Isis and Osiris" from The Magic Flute.
Synchronistic-wise, it's also the birthday of my old friend Heather, whom I met while working on the 17th floor of the Empire State Building.
UPDATED: Andre has the scoop:
WASHINGTON (AP)- President Barack Obama stayed in all day before taking a motorcade with Michelle Obama to the Blue Duck Tavern to mark their 17th wedding anniversary...
The Obamas were married Oct. 3, 1992 in a ceremony at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.
How about that?
