Grandma,s Wisdom. A young lady meets her Grandmother for lunch every week. Bless her heart. One week she comes to meet her Grandma and she is wearing a see through blouse with no bra. The Grandmother being a little taken a back: asked her why she would dress like that? She answered the boys like to see my blooming buds! Oh I see, said the Grandma, and not another word was said about it.  The next week the young lady meets with her Grandma and the Grandmother is wearing a see through blouse with no bra. The Granddaughter sees this and says why? would you dress like that!

The initiative was sparked by Robert Garland, a Pittsburgh industrialist who had encountered the idea in the United Kingdom. A passionate campaigner for the use of DST in the United States, he is often called the “father of Daylight Saving”. The seasonal time change was repealed just seven months later. However, some cities including Pittsburgh, Boston, and New York continued to use it until President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted year-round DST in the United States in 1942.

In years when the Harvest Moon falls in October, the September full Moon is usually known as the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It is also called the Barley Moon, because it is the time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley.
The word equinox comes from the Latin words for “equal night.” The fall and spring equinoxes are the only days of the year in which the Sun crosses the celestial equator.
From here on out, the temperatures begin to drop and the days start to get shorter than the nights
