The title today is simply a reminder that the solstice occurs on June 21 this year (as it will every non-leap year for the next quarter-century.) It is a non-scientific reminder, for the Sun of course continues in its orbit, and the Earth in hers. But if Sol has transited a certain number of degrees of latitude on its "northward" journey and has reached the highest north latitude it can achieve, then turns southward, it must surely "stand still" if only momentarily.
Do not pass this stuff along in a middle school science class. It won't fly. But the date and the event are correct.
Hope your summer is a jolly good one!
This little site, String Too Short to Tie, for some time has been getting between 4,000 and 6,000 hits per month. I guess the spammers are having an effect, though, for suddenly during this month of June the number of visits according to blogger stats exceeds 20,000. Is that even possible? And why? Of course none of these people is interacting, unless one counts the posting of spam as interaction.
If you are a new reader, and you are really reading the posts, leave me a one-word comment, "Yes." Otherwise, I will have to assume that I really have no new readers, just trolls. I really hate to go to the captcha thingie, I hate it, but what does one do? Oh, yes, blogger filters ninety percent of the spam, but still I have to empty that folder daily.
