Subject: RE: Midsummer morn, anything happening?
I know, but as I wasn't around then and neither were you-I suspect ! Us with only a short living memory will have to make do with what we've got. As you said Alex the solstice was the solstice, no matter who or what mucks about with our earthly temporal calender. The longest day will remain, like the shortest and the equinoxes, until our planet's orbit slows down a bit more or we increase our distance from the sun to amke an appreciable difference in our (human) measurement of time.

However, it's 23.047 over here and bedtime for me.
