    I've been really busy lately with Meat Market Promotions and now Booze and Blasphemy radio. I haven't been online as much as I once was. One of the bands just cancelled and my first show is five (5) days away so I'm a little nervous.

    I will reply further at a later time.

    The Solstice was nice where I live. We've purchased our house and land only a year ago (July 17 is the one year anniversay) so I missed the Solstice here last summer....

    Anyway, we have great skies here as we are on a hillside with our primary views looking north (of course! ) as well as to the east. On the morning of the Solstice, I rose before the sun so that I could watch where she rose on this important astronomical day and mark her position. As luck would have it, it was a cloudless morning (and chilly at 38 degrees F or a little over 3 degrees C!) so my view of the Great Orbess was not hindered in any way. So, out I went with a hot mug of coffee and my compass.

    Surise on that day, according to my almanac was slated for 4:17 AM Eastern Standard Time or 5:17 Eastern Daylight Savings Time (which we observe here in VT). We have a mountain to our east with a ridgeline running northward from the peak--so, we do not have a true horizon and I had to wait a few minutes longer for the Sun to rise above said ridge. It was somewhere in the neighborhood of 5:23 EDT and she crested the ridge at a bearing of around 48 degrees based on true north (as opposed to magnetic north which is around 16 degrees to the west of true north in my neck of the woods).

    Oh no, it wasn't all scientific for this fellow. :smt004 I got my share of thanks in for her warm blessings and I asked her to look after our garden as best she could (and also to put in a good word with the Rain Gods so that our well would stay full! ).

    I would like to build a small henge with some of our native stone in our back field on the hillside and now I know where to place the Summer Solstice stone. Maybe, in the distant future some archeologist will dig this up (assuming I get it built of course) and he or she can speculate on the inhabitants of this funny little place in the early 21st century. :smt005

    Ah, and the feelings are mutual on all accounts, fair lady.

    I will retun the kiss.
