This year is the 200 edition of the Farmers’ Almanac. 


Before television the Farmers’ Almanac was the planting bible for many country folks.  It contained humor, helpful hints, health advice, recipes, astrology, calendar, astronomy and weather. 

A reminder from the 2017 Almanac:
February 11 eclipse of the moon – visible mainly in Canada and the Northeast.

August 21 total eclipse of the Sun.  For the first time in four decades the eclipse will sweep across the contiguous United States.

COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
