The December solstice occurs when the sun reaches its most southerly declination of -23.5 degrees. In other words, it is when the North Pole is tilted 23.5 degrees away from the sun. To our southern hemisphere friends hope you are happy to see the “summer solstice!” It is the winter solstice only in the northern hemisphere.Either way-Hurrah for the Solstice and the beginning of LONGER DAYS again!!!
The countdown to the apocalypse is on.Well sort of, we woke up and the world is still here, the world did not end as the Mayans feared it would….however, we are in some rough and turbulent times. The Fiscal Cliff- one would think that the left, right and middle could get it together and truly do what is best for the majority, the country and the land. I understand Politics are exactly that “Politics” but to what cost? Today our US legislators left for vacation – I really understand how they could do that. It is an embarrassment.
Since the world seems to be going on, and the weather is looking fine for tomorrow – how about joining us for your last chance or those last minuet gifts!
