1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
9th May 1386: The world's oldest surviving alliance is forged by the Treaty of Windsor
The Treaty of Windsor is a treaty of alliance between England and Portugal and is still in force. The English had helped the Portuguese win the Battle of Aljubarrota the previous year, which secured Portuguese independence from Castille. The treaty was sealed by the marriage of King John I of Portugal (House of Aviz) to Philippa of Lancaster, daughter of John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster.
The original treaty document is preserved in the Portuguese National Archive.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
One of the greatest personal triumphs in my life has been Mindfulness - the elimination of the tyranny of random thought. This has allowed intuition to start running the show and make a better job of it. However, whatever seizes the throne then has to keep fighting to maintain it. There are many dark memories for my mind to get lost in if attention is not tightly leashed to the moment. A further threat though comes from the primal.
The primal has the ability to take the mind over and no amount of mindfulness can stand against it. It is therefore necessary to "buy off" the primal by meeting its various needs, like food, water, orgasms, comfort, pleasure and refuge. However, the primal must not be ruler as this leads to poor decisions, addiction and self-destruction.
There is clearly a flaw in the mechanism because my primal craves more food than it needs and this has been a lifelong struggle. It's not been a priority of late and this has resulted in bingeing. Slightly of concern is that I have NO GUILT about it - it's all been great! I've had a great time of yummy food and fabulous orgasms courtesy of my new artificial vagina, revitalizing a flagging libido.
However, primal management is now at the forefront of my consciousness and I need to restore some control. Over the next three weeks I intend to take advantage of routine to re-impose some order. With less distractions expected, it's an ideal opportunity to quieten and focus the mind and impose a balance that is unfortunately not inherent. However, the fact that I have to expend physical and mental effort to maintain wellbeing means that I can relate well to clients - I can teach them directly from experience.

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Who's Line Is It Anyway (US) excerpt
When a family cat died in ancient Egypt, family members would mourn by shaving off their eyebrows. They also held elaborate funerals during which they drank wine and beat their breasts. The cat was embalmed with a sculpted wooden mask and the tiny mummy was placed in the family tomb or in a pet cemetery with tiny mummies of mice.
