A Little bit of historical information about New Year from Wikipedia
New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar’s year count is incremented. In many cultures, the event is celebrated in some manner. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today in worldwide use, falls on 1 January (New Year’s Day), as was the case with the Roman calendar. There are numerous calendars that remain in regional use that calculate the New Year differently.
The order of months in the Roman calendar was January to December since King Numa Pompilius in about 700 BC, according to Plutarch and Macrobius. It was only relatively recently that 1 January again became the first day of the year in Western culture. Until 1751 in England and Wales (and all British dominions) the new year started on 25 March – Lady Day, one of the four quarter days (the change to 1 January took place in 1600 in Scotland). Since then, 1 January has been the first day of the year. During the Middle Ages several other days were variously taken as the beginning of the calendar year (1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, 25 December).[where?] In many countries, such as the Czech Republic, Italy, Spain and the UK, 1 January is a national holiday.
This was send to me by my sister in law in New Zealand and I thought this was brilliant. A great Capture. Look closely and see people climbing the hill to watch it. Double click on picture to get a bigger effect.

Full moon over Wellington, NZ…
Here is something a bit random, but none-the-less astounding. A photographer captured what is, to me, one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen filmed.
It is a 3 minute video clip of the full moon rising over Wellington NZ. It was shot on a calm summer evening, as people gathered on the Mt. Victoria Lookout point to watch the moon rise.
This stunning video is one single real-time shot, with no manipulation whatsoever. The camera was placed on a hillside over 2 kilometers from the Look out point and was shot with the equivalent of a 1300mm lens.
The amount of planning, trial and error, and luck that went into this are mind blowing. He has been trying to capture this for over a year with many failed attempts. But 2 nights ago it seems everything was on his side, and it all came together in a way even he couldn’t have hoped.
I honestly can’t say enough good things about this video – from the magnitude of the visuals, to the intimate stories playing out with the people, to the sheer humbling nature of seeing the awe-inspiring reality of this giant rock in the sky that we so often don’t stop to appreciate.
One thing I encourage you to do is watch this on the biggest screen you have – don’t waste it on an iPhone screen.

1. Scientists say that an Earth day had around 20 hours a few million years ago and that a million years from now it will have 27 hours.
The tidal acceleration of the Moon slows the rotation rate of the Earth and increases the Earth-Moon distance. Friction effects—between the core and mantle and between the atmosphere and surface—can dissipate the Earth’s rotational energy. These combined effects are expected to increase the length of the day by more than 1.5 hours over the next 250 million years, and to increase the obliquity by about a half degree.

Every year our friend puts on a great typical Texan crawfish day. We all have a fabulous time, many “Ale’s” to be had and a fun day in and around the pool. There was about 100 of us. The Crawfish was magnificent (800lbs of them) as usual and plentiful. Compliments to the cook.
Here are some photo’s from the day, which incidentally, was a beautiful warm day although the pool was a little chilly. As it went on into the evening we were presided over by a ‘Full Moon’.
