Random Things

An inspirational quote: “Nothing is easier than being busy, and nothing more difficult than being effective.”
-- Alec MacKenzie, time-management expert

2/2, now known as Groundhog Day, is actually the midpoint of the winter quarter of the year. The pagens call this day Imbolc. The day was/is used to forecast the following six weeks, just as Puxatawny Phil is used now - by the weather backwards. A clear day would indicate 6 more weeks of winter weather - like Phil seeing his shadow. The best part of this is no matter the weather, we are more than halfway to spring - yippee!

2/7 is Chinese New Year this year. We are about to enter the year of the rat. The date is determined by the second new moon following winter solstice - again, close to halfway through winter.

If you missed making resolutions or just haven't kept the ones you made at the Gregorian new year - why not make them now; anytime is a good time to decide to make your life better.

Peace, Judi
