    Thanks, Neif, that was a riveting story.

    "Last Saturday was the autumnal equinox."

    I am starting to think I bought a rogue calendar. I saw the Fall doodle on Google on Saturday. My wife said that Facebook was telling her it was the first day of autumn on Saturday; yet my calendar showed that Sunday was the Autumnal Equinox.

    If everyone else says it was Saturday; perhaps I can't trust my calendar with the correct dates. It was correct on the date for Easter (a floating holiday). And, even when I clicked the Google daily doodle; it said that any given year Fall starts either on Sept. 22 OR 23; so I presumed my calendar was correct, and Google jumped the gun this year. But, how is one to know which of the two days then?

    Maybe my calendar maker, doesn't know the correct answer to that question, either. Perhaps I shouldn't put much faith in the special days marked on a cheap calendar bought at Dollar Tree.
