Two beautiful names for one moon. It was great last night. Can’t wait for tonight to see the yard lit up from the moon & moonlight garden. Might be a good night to camp out.

Lovely story about the strawberry moon and the rose moon. It makes me ask the question: If this sort of information was taught in school, would kids become more interesting in astronomy, space, research, etc.?

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 1910, 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.
