Thought I'd catch you all up on my journeys.  Its been a long road over many weeks and 5 different addresses. Whew!

I left the Alps February 20th (I think - the days are blurring one into the other - but that seems correct from looking at the calendar).

Took the train to Florence and spent the next 3 weeks in Florence Italy, walking that city doing a "Kauilapele" clearing the energies there.  I purposely set the intention to clear what I could of the ancient energies in that city, and boy did that shake some things loose, including some surprise moves by the Vatican, Ashtar Sherr-on and Ashtar Sherr-an, and others....  Never understood what KP did, until the last year or  so but I totally get it now.

I stayed in Florence until I worked out the logistics of getting back home, had no idea how that would work out given that I had about 200 euro left when I arrived. I stayed a bit longer than I expected and worked through some other issues that were occurring in Florence.

Thank you all so much for helping out with the trip home! I truly appreciate the love shown!

I left Florence March 15,  flew back via Amsterdam and landed in Seattle.  Got seriously ill on the Delta flight after I ate a concoction that bore no resemblance to an Italian Calzone.  Had to ask the barrista at Seattle's Best Coffee at the airport for a plastic bag to barf in. Oh I was so ill!!!!  Haven't had food poisoning cramps so bad like that in a long time.  Took me 24 hours to clear that out.   I don't think it was too good of advertising for Seattle's Best Coffee, but I am grateful to the merciful barrista for giving me a plastic bag... it wasn't their fault I was ill... it was Delta Airlines who served the awful food.

Goldman Sachs revenue slumps to lowest in more than four years
BY SUDARSHAN VARADHAN AND OLIVIA ORAN

Goldman Sachs Group Inc's (GS.N) quarterly profit fell by more than half and revenue slumped to its lowest in more than four years as market volatility hit the Wall Street bank's bond trading and investment banking businesses.

Goldman, wrapping up a dismal quarter for big U.S. banks, reported a 40 percent drop in net revenue, reflecting declines in all of its main businesses.

As with other banks, Goldman's trading revenue was hit by sliding commodity and oil prices, worries about the Chinese economy and uncertainty about U.S. interest rates.

Highlighting the challenges facing the bank, Goldman's return on average common equity - a measure of how well the bank uses shareholder money - was 6.4 percent in the quarter, down from 14.7 percent a year earlier. (bit.ly/22KtaAI)

Many investors think ROE should be at least 10 percent to cover the cost of capital.

Goldman, whose shares were up 2.2 percent at $162.42 in morning trading on Tuesday, said its revenue from trading bonds, currencies and commodities (FICC) fell about 47 percent. Equities trading revenue, normally a strength, slid 23 percent.

FICC accounted for 26.2 percent of total revenue in the quarter - a far cry from the 40 percent the business regularly contributed before the financial crisis.

"The market was braced for a weak quarter, but we think the breadth of weakness on the top line will be a disappointment as people try to grapple with the timing of the recovery," Evercore ISI analyst Glenn Schorr wrote in a client note.

Goldman's traditional rival, Morgan Stanley (MS.N), reported a 54 percent drop in adjusted revenue from fixed income and commodities trading and a similar drop in net profit. Its equities trading revenue fell 9.3 percent.

Goldman reported a 56.3 percent fall in net income applicable to common shareholders to $1.2 billion, or $2.68 per share, for the three months ended March 31. That compared with $2.75 billion, or $5.94 per share, a year earlier, when the bank recorded its best quarterly profit in five years.

Analysts on average had expected earnings of $2.45 per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Net revenue fell to $6.34 billion from $10.62 billion.

Still, Chief Financial Officer Harvey Schwartz express some optimism about market conditions in the current quarter.

"Although the market seems fragile ... it feels like factors impacting the markets in the first quarter have abated," Schwartz said on a call with analysts, adding that the bank would "do what it takes" to maximize returns for shareholders.

COMPENSATION COSTS DROP

Goldman's investment banking revenue, which includes income from advising on deals and underwriting bond and share offerings, fell 23.2 percent to $1.46 billion in the quarter.

Goldman, like its rivals, has been cutting costs to make up for weak revenue.

Compensation costs fell 40.3 percent to $2.66 billion in the latest quarter. Operating costs fell 28.7 percent to $4.76 billion as employee compensation costs dropped about 40 percent.

Non-compensation costs fell 5.6 percent to $2.1 billion, the lowest in seven years, as a result of lower provisions for litigation and other regulatory matters.

Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N), Bank of America Corp (BAC.N) and Morgan Stanley together have cut nearly $4 billion in compensation costs since the first quarter of 2015, according to Reuters calculations.

Up to Monday's close, Goldman's shares had fallen about 12 percent since the start of the year, making the stock the worst performer in the Dow Jones industrial average .DJI.

God said:

Everything you choose in life is your choice. Here's what I mean:

If you are sad, you chose sadness. If you can choose sadness, you can choose happiness.

Your life is based on your choices. Under all circumstances, you have choices to make. Your experience and the world itself may tell you that under certain circumstances, you can only be unhappy. To believe that or not believe that is also a choice you make.

If you can choose anger, you can choose peace. You may say you can't help anger. You may say you do not choose it, but suddenly it appears and seems to take you over -- your emotions, your thoughts, your blood pressure. Do you think you can only be a fall guy to anger?

Heart Shaped Sunspot lets loose...



Space Weather News for April 18, 2016

SOLAR FLARE UPDATE: NOAA forecasters say that a CME hurled into space by today's M6.7-flare might deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on April 20th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras during a possible G1-class geomagnetic storm.

BIG SUNSPOT ERUPTS: Surprise! Quiet sunspot AR2529 isn't so quiet, after all. The heart-shaped active region erupted on April 18th (00:39 UT), producing a strong M6.7-class solar flare and shortwave radio blackouts around the Pacific.   Visit http://spaceweather.com for more information.

A pulse of UV radiation from the flare ionized the top of Earth's atmosphere. This, in turn, disrupted shortwave radio communications over the daylit side of our planet. Mariners, aviators, and ham radio operators around the Pacific Ocean may have noticed fading signals at frequencies below ~15 MHz. A NOAA blackout map shows the frequencies and territories affected.

More M-class flares are possible in the days ahead. AR2529 has developed a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors plenty of energy for this kind of explosion. Although the sunspot is no longer directly facing Earth, it can still affect our planet by causing radio blackouts and glancing-blow CMEs. Stay tuned.
