Knobs. They're called knobs I couldn't think of the name of them to save my life, when I posted that!

Is that super wackadoodle of me to say? How is DS after that? I'm so so so glad you guys are okay. GAH!!
I literally have dust bunnies on my dashboard. I think the last time I cleaned the car was LAST year at TM time!
Right? Crazy shit-- I have made tinctures I don't know how many hundreds of times. M said just to be on the safe side, I should learn the flash points/boiling points of things (as if), and get a double boiler. I don't make tinctures often enough to warrant owning a double boiler-- I have had them in the past, and decluttered them because they were taking up space. I'll just have to be more careful next time. Hah, got right back up on the horse, though-- went to the herb store and the liquor store and started a new tincture today. So another two months till I can simmer this one down...sigh...and I will have to be extra careful this next time!
YES, about the car clutter. You know, mine just will not stay clean. I have wipes (all different kinds, including Armor All, which is meant for cars) and the dang car is just as dirty after wiping, as before. It stays dusty, and I can't figure why. My mom has the same car as me, and hers is never like that. I figure because, a'la FlyLady, my mom is a B.O. and I am a S.H.E. and that's just How It Is.

Maia-Thank the Gods you and your boy are safe and nothing else happened! Hopefully like vydalea said, it was clearing out some negative energy and things will be better now!!
Oh, and would someone mind filling me in a little more on the treasure map?? I have read through the thread and done a few rudimentary Googles (lots of pirate stuff!), but I don't quite get it.
YAY about your dad. That's some crazy stuff, that...I'd SO be suing. But maybe better psychically to let bygones be bygones and move on. He knows he's better, so yay.
YES, on the clearing out negative energy, I hope y'all are right, and it didn't bring bad luck or something! I got some of that awful carpet smelly odor-covering stuff and just did all the carpet. Ye Gods, I don't use chemicals much, and it stinks. But whatever, as long as it doesn't smell like burnt plastic, which it did a half hour ago, and all the windows are open. For a change, I am glad for warm weather.
TM-- don't Google, all you get is pirate stuff, like you did I'm pretty sure a bunch of the old TM threads are still archived on MDC, and if so, a lot of people post pix of theirs as they get done with them. So you can get an idea of what other people do. They're all the same, but different!
In a nutshell: I am not astrologically minded, but it starts on the Aries New Moon, which is the astrological new year. This year it's March 22nd. The new moon lasts about 3-1/2 days and that's the prime time for doing a map.
The energy supposedly really shifts with the new moon, so people are advised NOT to think ahead to what you want to manifest, because things may drastically change with the new moon energy.
It's like a vision board of what you want to bring into your life, or, manifest. It's kind of The Secret on a board. Phrase things in the positive...not "no debt" but "financial security", because the universe might hear just the word "debt" and bring you more. See?
But be careful how you phrase things, too, and what you ask for...the Universe brings things in her own way. I've heard of people putting "abundance" and getting pregnant...and that's not what they had in mind at all!
Go look up past MDC TM threads. I think you will find all you need on those. They're copious reading, though! And there are always a prep thread AND an actual TM thread for each year.

If you do, make sure 1) you know how to use it. Ahead of time. Mine did nothing, because once the pin was pulled, I couldn't figure out the rest. And in a real fire, you don't have time to dicker with figuring things out. And 2) in this particular fire, as it turns out, an extinguisher would have FUELED the flames, so I'm glad it didn't work! You have to know about fires. Different kinds. Which I do not.
Tomorrow, I am bringing the firefighters a box of Starbucks and boxes of donuts
