I see the bad moon arising...


With apologies to Creedence Clearwater Revival, I off the following fact list:



  • My paternal grandmother did everything based on the phase of the moon: planting, cutting wood, even weather forecasting. Anecdotal evidence proved her right more than the local TV weather man.

  • Nurses and doctors believe the ER and the OB both fill up under a full moon.

  • Teachers believe students misbehave more often under a full moon.

  • Yesterday, a full moon, congress approved an extension of the cash for clunkers program and approved Judge Sotomayor as a Supreme Court Justice.

Grandma wasn't wrong very often...

If your grandmum had been a wise Latina, she would have just "known" instead of relying on the moon! Ha!

Grandma was born and raised and spent almost her entire life within a circle of about 10 miles in Northern Greenville County. She did take a trip to California to see a sister once, I wonder if she even ever saw a "wise" Latina woman...

But she did know a lot about chopping wood...
