November... or Movember?

 

 

Movemberb

What a handsome bunch- all getting ready to launch the annual celebration of "Movember"!  What is that, you say?  Well, likely, growing a mustache is not on your bucket list.  

Movember is celebrated during the month of November- which was once the the ninth month of the ancient Roman calendar. November retained its name (from the Latin novem meaning "nine") when January and February were added to the Roman calendar.

So, the rest of the story:

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health."

By encouraging men (who the charity refers to as "Mo Bros") to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt healthier lifestyles.

Be sure to tell your man to "shave the date" and check into "movember.com" to learn how to Mo properly...

All In Balance . . .

The Earth is always tilted at an angle of about 23° in relation to the the Sun.  99% of the time, this means either the days or the nights will be longer, depending on whether our location is slanted a little away from, or a little toward, the Sun.

But just twice each year, the Earth tilts neither away from nor towards the Sun- and this is called the equinox, because the amounts of daylight and darkness are closer to equal.

At about 10:30 PM on September 22, 2014, the autumn equinox will occur. This marks the beginning of longer nights and shorter days, but also the harvest season, and is, in many traditions, celebrated with festivals and other celebrations. 

At Stonehenge, it is traditional to watch the sun rise, and then set, to herald the new fall season, and to contemplate the gifts of life and the bounty of the land.  Likely most of us will not be able to attend, but an early rise on the 23rd to see the sun once again call us to the day may suffice. Well . . .  OK, just watch it set, then!

And, dremember to give thanks for the harvest moon, so-called because it rises bright, full and right after sunset (this year on September 8th), making it possible for gatherers to stay in the field thru the night to continue the harvest.  Enjoy!
