Our next Full Moon Picnic will be Wed Jan 15 from 6 - 8 PM with moonrise around 6:30 PM.
This full moon was known as known to American Indians as the Full Wolf Moon as wolves howled nearby in the long winter night. It has also been called the "Moon After Yule."
WHAT: Everyone brings food and drink to share. Hot drinks (mulled wine, tea, hot chocolate) are HIGHLY recommended. I'll bring my famous hot apple cider.
WHERE: Pont des Arts. We'll gather around a bench towards the Left Bank side of the bridge. Nearest metros: Pont Neuf and Louvre-Rivoli.
WHEN: Wednesday, 15 January, 6-8 PM
WHY: Share one of the most memorable sights in Paris with some of the nicest people around.
WHO: You and your friends.
HOW to find us: Look for lunatics chattering in English (and French), laughing and drinking. Keep your eyes out for a small white telescope on tripod if the sky is clear. Check in by cell phone if you can't find us:[masked] 97.
THEME: Breaking New Year's Resolutions. You've made 'em. You've started... and stopped. So tonight you can end the charade.
PUZZLER: What better way to disprove global warming than when idiot scientists get stuck in the ice in the summer in Antarctica?
PUZZLER ANSWER. They didn't get stuck because of increased ice; they got stuck because of strong winds that blew the ice into their path and cause deep buildup. Yes, it adds a convenient soundbite for those in denial, but the real issue is CLIMATE CHANGE, not simply GLOBAL WARMING. Just ask the people on the east coast of the US freezing their butts in the coldest weather in decades. (Yesterday, all 50 states experienced at least one location with temperature below freezing, including Hawaii (volcano summit).
