Solstice Time is Here

Roger Pearse has some really smart friends!!!

I think I just learned why the Romans' winter solstice actually was always on the 25th, and I think I finally figured out why that doesn't contradict what we think we know now - even though our Gregorian Calendar always puts the solstice on the 23rd.

If you care (and you probably shouldn't) follow this link for the story. I think.

So, you really are into all things related to time! ;-)

Seriously, I like your blog and read many of your posts. Keep up the good work.

I'd rather not, thanks. ;-)

Seriously, my uncertainty matches yours. "I think." You're absolutely right to press for more data, and that's partly why I simply linked to the ongoing conversation.

When you post a final judgment about it, I'll update this post.

And thanks again, Roger, for your insatiable drive and tenacity. And for your willingness to post open querries...

Thanks, Jason. Waitaminit - "many"? Which of my posts do you NOT read?

JK. And welcome (soon) to DFW. The food and weather are worse than in LA, but the Metroplex is a'ite.

Blog about DTS and I'll come buy you lunch some time!
