  1. I admit that I am no expert, but when I read “no divination”, I think of the guy with the forked stick trying to find water. Is that included?

  2. A suggestion – if you’ll be doing these posts for 7 weeks, you might want to at least put a link in each post to the original post where you explain what you’re doing. If a reader happened to miss that very first day, they might have a hard time figuring out what’s going on.
