THE LONGEST MONTH?

Now that October no longer gets th extra hour (and by the way was that an idea of Ben Franklin?)
is there anything to differentiate the lengths of the 31 day months except for March?

Don't know the answer to your question but as far as I am concerned January seems about as long as two months put together. The days are drearily short, winds are cold, snow blows, there's nothing exciting happening in the month (no holidays). Once I turn the calendar to February, there's hope: the days are beginning to lengthen (and I watch the daily weather to see how many extra minutes of daylight we get every day!), there are more sunny days and sometimes quite warm days (like in the 30s and 40s - in Nebraska, that's warm!), and there's always Valentine's Day to look forward to.

And your original question was ???

I just bought a smoke detector with a 10 year battery. SWEET!

Sure wish other things I own had a 10 year battery.

LODI
Try drinking TEA and eating chocolate, especially DARK chocolate....
They are good for heart rate, blood pressure and cholesterol.
Add a little protein, vegetables and fruit, occasionally
That about sums up my diet!!!!

Neither was I Lodi....Maybe diet was the wrong word
I meant that the above comprises how I get nutrition
every day....and I have low levels for each of those
health indicators....

You got me started thinking about what I can do to amuse myself
if there's a long blackout....computer's got a battery but there
wouldn't be any internet connection....no Sploofus....
Too dark at night to read.......phone wouldn't work....mmmmmmm
Have to follow Lodi's example and get a really good battery charger!!!!
At least when the lights came back on, I'd be smiling!!!!
