Lord’s a leapin’??

 

2012 has 366 days ..one more day to work..one more day to sleep, eat, drink and be merry!!..and another day to blog about!!!

Why do we have leap years?

‘Leap Years are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth's revolutions around the sun.

It takes the Earth approximately 365.242199 days (a tropical year) to circle once around the Sun.

If we didn't add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours every year.

After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days!’

here is Tucker’s rendition of Leap Year!!..

enjoy the extra day!!..

‘Life, something we all, at one time or another, take for granted. We all strive to lead a happy successful life, but how is that done.

One of the easiest ways is to maintain a positive attitude, to cherish the simple things in life.

There is a saying that for us summarizes this well, "What I do today is important, because I am exchanging a day of my life for it."

Reflect on those words and keep your attitude positive - find the good in every situation.’

  2. I tried to convince my wife that, since it was an "extra day", that maybe she could stay home.
    Didn't work. She had stuff to do, mysteries to solve. Something like that.

  3. Also known as Sadie Hawkin's Day. Now, if I could just find a nice eligible man around here...

    Just trying to be positive! ;)

  13. Tucker looks very happy on the day that doesn't count! This post reminded that life is so valuable and happiness comes from within. Life isn't about possessions or wealth, it's about family and love. Great blog entry.

    Thank you, Clara
