Once in a Blue Moon

There was a blue moon last Friday night, the second full moon in a calender month.  The last time that this happened was December 31, 2009, and the next time will be July, 2015.  Approximately once every 19 years there are two blue moons in a year and the last time this happened was 1999 in January and March.  When this happens, it is almost always in January and March because of February being so short, it has no full moon at all.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
