Yes. Don't know why it's done on this specific day though... :-\\ I mean, St Martin was a good man, but there are literally hundreds of other saints that are/were equally good.

Anyway, there have been no children at my door. In fact I haven't seen any kids at all on the streets...Must be due to the bad weather (it's stormy and raining - no fun in walking around trying to keep your light burning!).

I was talking about Top 3 most valuable players on his team.  I think Mauer and Santana rank higher than him.

Subject: Re: Today is...

Written By: Rice_Cube on 11/21/06 at 2:27 pm

Mauer had the batting average but the HR and run production department were clearly decided by Morneau, Torii Hunter and Cuddyer.  I think that point isn't too relevant though considering that Ichiro won MVP in his rookie season just because he got on a base a lot.  Mauer and Morneau's OPS were essentially the same as well.

Hard to argue.  Not to mention that Santana got the Cy Young award and voters frown on giving the MVP to a pitcher even if they deserve it.  Jeter was an excellent player and got on base a lot, but I think Morneau's numbers overshadowed that.

25th December

My dearest darling,
That partridge in that lovely little pear tree! What an enchanting,
romantic, poetic present! Bless you and thank you.
Your deeply loving Emily...

26th December

Mr dearest darling Edward
The two turtle doves arrived this morning and are cooing
away in the pear tree as I write. I'm so touched and
grateful.
With undying love, as always, Emily

27th December

My darling Edward,
You do think of the most original presents; whoever thought of sending
anybody three French hens? Do they really come all the way from France?
It's a pity we have no chicken coops, but I expect we'll find some. Thank
you anyway, they're heaven.
Your loving Emily...

28th December

Dearest Edward,
What a surprise - four calling birds arrived this morning. They are very
sweet - even if they do call rather loudly - they make telephoning
impossible. But I expect they'll calm down when they get used to their new
home. Anyway, I'm very grateful - of course I am.
Love from Emily...

29th December

Dearest Edward,
The postman has just delivered five most beautiful gold rings, one for each
finger, and all fitting perfectly. A really lovely present - lovelier in a
way than the birds, which do take rather a lot of looking after. The four
that arrived yesterday are still making a terrible row, and I'm afraid none
of us got much sleep last night. Mummy says she wants to use the rings to
'wring' their necks, she's only joking, I think; though I know what she
means. But I love the rings. Bless you.
Love Emily

30th December

Dear Edward,
Whatever I expected to find when I opened the front door this morning, it
certainly wasn't six socking great geese laying eggs all over the doorstep.
Frankly, I had rather hoped you had stopped sending me birds - we have no
room for them and they have already ruined the croquet lawn. I know you
meant well, but - let's call a halt, shall we?
Love Emily

31st December

Edward,
I thought I said no more birds, but this morning I woke to find no less
than seven swans all trying to get into our tiny goldfish pond. I'd rather
not think what happened to the goldfish. The whole house seems to be full
of birds - to say nothing of what they leave behind them. Please, please
STOP...
Your Emily

1st January

Frankly, I think I prefer the birds. What am I to do with eight milkmaids -
AND their cows? Is this some kind of a joke? If so I'm afraid I don't find
it very amusing.
Emily...

2nd January

Look here Edward, this has gone far enough. You say you're sending me nine
ladies dancing; all I can say is that judging from the way they dance,
they're certainly not ladies. The village just isn't accustomed to seeing a
regiment of shameless hussies with nothing on but their lipstick cavorting
round the green - and it's Mummy and I who get blamed. If you value our
friendship - which I do less and less - kindly stop this ridiculous
behaviour at once.
Emily...

3rd January

As I write this letter, ten disgusting old men are prancing about all over
what used to be the garden - before the geese and the swans and the cows
got at it; and several of them, I notice, are taking inexcusable liberties
with the milkmaids. Meanwhile the neighbours are trying to have us evicted.
I shall never speak to you again.
Emily

4th January

This is the last straw. You know I detest bagpipes. The place has now
become something between a menagerie and a madhouse and a man from the
Council has just declared it unfit for habitation. At least Mummy has been
spared this last outrage; they took her away this afternoon in an
ambulance. I hope you're satisfied...
Emily

5th January

Sir, Our client, Miss Emily Wilbraham, instructs me to inform you that with

The term "Candlemas" refers to the practice found in former Roman Missals whereby a priest on February 2 would bless the candles for use during the year (said candles must be of beeswax). This practice has generally fallen out of use.

We don't have them as often as when I was a child.  My parents always kept some candles in the living room and a paraffin lantern ready in the kitchen.  Mind I'm probably talking early to mid 70s with all the strikes and that.

The last power cut I can remember was almost 5 years ago.  I remember because the power went off just as I switched the microwave on for my son's bedtime bottle of milk.  He was 5 last weekend.

So get out the broom and sweep the place clean
And dust off the mat so the welcome can be seen.
Roll out the carpet, strike up the band,
And give out with a Hip, Hooray! (Hip, Hooray!)
Wiggle your ears like good Mouseketeers

World Naked Bike Ride Day


Duncan Blinkhorn, 45, one of the organisers of the seven-mile Brighton ride, said: "This is a fun if outrageous way to make the serious point that we should not have to tolerate roads, cities and a planet dominated by the brutishness of cars that routinely foul the air we all breathe.

"Bikes and naked bodies harm nobody. Car fumes... are driving us all to climate chaos."


I bet there will be some fumes emitted that may not be all that pleasant  ::), but all in all it looks like a fun run.  It does seem to me that for those completely naked that the bicycle seat could become quite uncomfortable.  :P

Impressive Philip, not too many outside of the African American community know about Juneteenth.  It is an official holiday, as opposed to a  legal holiday, meaning it is on paper but observances are private, not public. Texas was the last state to inform its slave population of the end of the Civil War and with it the end of slavery, June 19, 1865.

Boston MA : Boston Massacre Day (1770)

The Boston Massacre refers to an incident involving the deaths of five civilians at the hands of British troops on March 5, 1770, the legal aftermath of which helped spark the rebellion in some of the British colonies in America which culminated in the American Revolution. A tense situation due to a heavy British military presence in Boston boiled over to incite brawls between soldiers and civilians, and eventually led to troops discharging their muskets after being attacked by a rioting crowd. Three civilians were killed at the scene of the shooting, and two died after the incident.

Hope that is going well, I was out from October to March, but now I am set up in a nice position.  Of course it is different for me, I am union construction and have the business agent to do the dirty work.  I think I would fold if I had to go on interviews and such. Break a leg.

Earth Day is either of two different observances, both held annually during spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn in the southern hemisphere. These are intended to inspire awareness of and appreciation for the Earth's environment. The United Nations celebrates an Earth Day each year on the March equinox, a tradition which was founded by peace activist John McConnell in 1969. A second Earth Day, which was founded by US politician Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in in the late 1960s, is celebrated in many countries each year on April 22.

It is also Beltane in the U.S. for those of us who practice Wicca.

I also believe it is Labor Day in some countries. Too lazy to look it up.

May 29th: United Kingdom: Oak Apple Day.

From wiki:

"Oak Apple Day was a holiday celebrated in England on 29 May to commemorate the restoration of the monarchy in Great Britain and Ireland, in May 1660. In some parts of the country, the day was also known as Shick-Shack Day or Arbour Day.

In 1660, Parliament declared 29th May a public holiday:

"Parliament had ordered the 29 of May, the King's birthday, to be for ever kept as a day of thanksgiving for our redemption from tyranny and the King's return to his Government, he entering London that day."
Though the holiday, Oak Apple Day, was formally abolished in 1859, a 1915 film clip of Colonel Lyttleton inspecting the Chelsea pensioners on Oak Apple Day is preserved at the British Film Institute.

Traditional celebrations to commemorate the event often entailed the wearing of oak apples (a type of plant gall, possibly known in some parts of the country as a shick-shack, but see the article on its etymology in the external links) or sprigs of oak leaves, in reference to the occasion after the Battle of Worcester in September 1651, when the future Charles II of England escaped the Roundhead army by hiding in an oak tree near Boscobel House.

These ceremonies, which have now largely died out, are perhaps continuations of pre-Christian nature worship. The Garland King who rides through the streets of Castleton, Derbyshire, at the head of a procession, completely disguised in greenery, which is affixed to a pinnacle on the parish church tower, can have little connection with the Restoration. Events still take place at Upton-upon-Severn, Northampton, Aston on Clun in Shropshire, Marsh Gibbon in Buckinghamshire, Great Wishford in Wiltshire, and Membury in Devon.

At some Oxford and Cambridge halls a toast is still drunk to celebrate Oak Apple day."

Subject: Re: Today is...

Written By: CatwomanofV on 02/02/09 at 12:55 pm

It is the halfway point between the Winter Solstice & the Vernal Equinox. 


Brigid
or Candlemas, on February 2, is the festival of the Goddess Brigid, patron of poetry, healing, and metalsmithing. Brigid's poetry inspires me to shake off winter's sleep now, stretch and start to get ready for Spring. I am still drowsy.

In most areas in North America, February 2nd is usually a day during the most dismal part of the year weather wise. It is usually rainy or snowy and most often quite cold. This makes a perfect time for the Wiccan Festival of Lights! February 2nd marks the day of Imbolc, or in some traditions, Oimelc. The name of "Candlemas" comes to us by way of the Christians. This is the day that marks the beginning of the Spring season of growth. We can see the new budding flowers and the signs that Spring is on her way. Imbolc literally means "in the belly." In the womb of the Goddess Mother there are the beginnings of new life, waiting to explode into our view! The seeds that were planted in Her at the solstice are now growing and the new wheel grows. This is also the lambing season and so we get the word, Oimelc, which means "milk of ewes."

The Irish often call this day, "Brigit’s Day," in honor of the Goddess Brigit. She is considered a goddess of fire, so in Kildare, Ireland, a group of 19 women kept a flame burning in her honor. It was during this time that Brigit would bestow a special blessing on any woman about to be married, as another form of the name Brigit is "Bride." The Great Goddess of Ireland could never be called a demon by the Church, so instead, the Roman Catholics canonized her. She became "Saint Brigit, patron SAINT of smithcraft, poetry, and healing." The Church told the uneducated Irish peasant on the street that Brigit was really an early Christian missionary sent to the Emerald Isle, and that she performed miracles so the people there believed that she was a goddess. We don’t know why, but many of the Irish bought this. Another piece of lore commonly believed by the Irish was that Brigit was the mother of Christ. They gave no consideration to the fact that the boy never spent any of his childhood in Ireland.

This Holiday was often marked by the use of sacred fires, symbolizing the fire of birth and healing, the fire of the forge, and the fire of inspiration. Bonfires were lit and the chandlers celebrated their holiday. The Church was quick to make use of this symbolism as well, using "Candlemas" as the day to bless the candles that would be used in the church for the coming year. The following day, St. Blaise’s Day, was for using the blessed candles to bless the throats of the parishioners, keeping them from colds, flu and the like.

Imbolc is a great day for making candles! One custom is to put one in each window of your home and let them burn down until morning. For safety sake, you may not want to do this if you have pets or children. In all cases, make sure the candles are well secured form tipping. It is a very cheery picture to see a house on a dark dreary night to be lit up with candles. This is a good time for using candles in magick and in divination. It is an excellent time for cleansing and purification. It is the time to clean the house and bring in the bright new energy that comes with the birth of all things new that is brought by Spring.


http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/Cafe/1614/Celtwicc/Wicca/Wicca04.htm


Another custom-instead of using candles is after sundown to turn on ALL the lights in the house-if only for a few minutes to encourage the sun to make a full return. Also, you are supposed to draw a picture of the sun in the snow with your finger.

Actually...it was Presidents Day. It is a common misconception to think of it is Washingtons Bday, when in fact it commemorates the birthdays of two Presidents - Abe Lincoln (February 12th) and George Washington (February 22nd). Most of the time, it happens to fall closer to Washington's actual date, but never on that date, because Presidents Day is observed on the 3rd Monday of February (so it can fall anywhere from the 15th to the 21st).

because it's Friday, perchance? ???


The community colleges and CSU's have observed it on the 31st...except for when it falls on the weekend. I know that in 2001 and 2007 when the 31st fell on a Saturday, observance was on Friday, the 30th...and in 2002 when it fell on a Sunday, it was observed the next day, Monday April 1st (which will occur again in 2013).
I know that the city of Oxnard observes it, and anytime it falls on a Monday or Tuesday (like it does this year), trash pickup is delayed a day.
