SUMMER SOLSTICE

This picture has nothing to do with the Solstice

Today, at 12:16 local time (That’s 5:16 UCT) Is the summer solstice. I wonder if “summer” is correctly part of the scientific phrase because in the southern hemisphere, it’d be winter.

It is the first day of summer, it is also the longest day. Since the days start getting shorter, Don’t you think this should be the middle day of summer? Doesn’t it make sense to have the longest day in the middle of summer?
Chris over at Diet Coke Rocks can be happy today, Although there it’s the first day of winter, today marks the beginning of the journey to summertime, with each day getting longer.

I notice that the plants notice the change in the length of days much more than I do.

I feel kind of mushy and sentimental today, I guess it’s probably my Wifes fault. When I met her I was tough as nails. Now I’m only tough as snails. She also softened up my killer attack dog, Ditto. He was a ferocious monster, now he’s “cute” and “Adorable”. Disgusting.
