That's because there's interest added until you pay off the 7 billion calendars! smiley - silly

But we're being charged the interest before I've even bought them! h2g2 must be making money hand over foot!

Mine arrived today.

Allow me say with profound understatement,
"I am not disappointed."

Thank you Tav and all who sailed in her.

(There is one frosty Alpine meadow image
that leaves me breathless. At least it looks
like a frosty Alpine meadow to me for I
swear I could hear Lord Byron muttering in
my ear about gnarled roots and branches.)

That said, and not to sound like I'm complaining
but some months appear not to have a full moon.
This is probably a good thing.
smiley - fullmoon

And thanks for including Canadian Thanksgiving!
Said the Canadian giving thanks.

smiley - cheers

Does that mean on exciting days they don't happen? Werewolves must try and live interesting lives smiley - biggrin

I understand. A smiley - fullmoon is quite big, after all. Even if it looks like a small silver coin it is usually bigger than - say - a lorry smiley - yikes

I knew a werewolf once who didn't seem to mind the absence of smiley - fullmoon

smiley - pirate

Got It! Like It!
My order actually took root on Nov 23. It arrived about 10:15 today...
Tweeks - not bad for the so-called antipodes. At this distance, considering logistics, time of year..., not bad at all.


Vernal Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox, Winter Solstice - call yourselves Researchers, do you?

You may want to check it.

We interrupt Rod's first assignment as a newly recruited member of the h2g2 2014 calendar team with this breaking news:

Lulu is having a 20% off sale through December 14

Back to Rod...

I just got my order for 2013 Calendar in.
I hope Rod does better than whoever chose March 21,2012 as the vernal equinox. I pointed out this mistake and GB disavowed that she had anything to do with that mistake on the calendar.

Aw, geez, one day before or after an equinox don't
make no blime bit of difference, do it? eh?

'Nfact all the seasons should start on the 21st of their
respective months. Life is complicated enough as it is.
smiley - fullmoon
At the risk of offending, I'd probably cry out Pedant!
at anyone outside a legitimate observatory insisting
on observing such a subtle cosmic discrepancy as a few
minutes of a day one way or t'other.
smiley - shrug
If the Maya Apopolex comes on the 2oth or 22nd of Dec
it matters not a jot. I mean who'll really complain?
smiley - cheers

I like how apparently researchers, volunteers, creationeers and calendereers (that being their proper title) can now be disavowed smiley - biggrin
