This is really interesting information. Thinking back many years ago, the full moon, harvest moon was amazing. It was right out of a picture book ,full bright orange and black sky as it’s back drop, have remembered it to this day. Mother nature is wondrous.

Enjoyed riding the Megabus. Wish they could find a better location in Little Rock, AR. The price wasn’t that great for my trip to Grand Prairie.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
