Spring 2014!

Spring at last! The season of renewal begins at 12:57 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and aren’t we all glad.

This is the vernal equinox and that means will have twelve hours of daylight. Equinox is latin for half and half, although the Farmer’s Almanac says it’s not quite a twelve hour day or night because of the way the sun’s rays bend and hit the earth.

Who wants to quibble?  Let’s enjoy as much of the daylight and sunshine as possible.

Good luck

You’re supposed to be able to balance an egg on its end at the equinox.  Some Chinese believe that if you succeed in balancing the egg you’ll have good luck for the rest of the year.
