The summer solstice is the day on which the
Earth’s northern hemisphere leans closest to the Sun.
In the southern hemisphere it takes place in December.
It’s an astronomical anomaly, and it all has to do with the positioning of the sun. All the planets move in orbits, and the earth takes 365 days to go through one.
Planets rotate on an axis and spin like a top. The earth is tilted 23.5 degrees to the plane of the solar system. At one point, more direct rays hit the earth each year.
The world ‘solstice’ comes from the Latin derivation, meaning ‘sun standing still. The sun doesn’t actually stand still, it only appears to.
It’s all about the tilt of the axis. That’s what gives us seasons. At the moment of the solstice, the sun appears to stand still during and for a few consecutive days before and after The sun appears to rise and set exactly at the same part of the day. Except in the polar regions (where daylight is continuous for many months), the day on which the summer solstice occurs is the day of the year with the longest period of daylight. The summer solstice occurs in June in the Northern Hemisphere north of the Tropic of Cancer (23°26′N) and in December in the Southern Hemisphere south of the Tropic of Capricorn (23°26′S.)
Celebrations go way back to ancient times. The solstice is a Pagan celebration day and believers gather at spiritually significant sites, such as Stonehenge.
The ancients knew the movement of the sun, the planets and the stars. They used the sun for farming. People would celebrate with huge festivals and bonfires. Now we don’t take notice, but it’s built into our calendars. School comes out around this time, and family vacations are planned around this time. Traditionally, this period of the year fell between the planting and harvesting of crops, leaving a space for pleasure and relaxation in the lives of those living off the land, so June became the traditional month for weddings.
Summer Solstice Fun Facts
Pagans called the Midsummer moon the “Honey Moon” for the mead made from fermented honey that was part of wedding ceremonies performed at the Summer Solstice.
Ancient Pagans celebrated Midsummer with bonfires, when couples would leap through the flames, believing their crops would grow as high as the couples were able to jump.
Midsummer was thought to be a time of magic, when evil spirits were said to appear. To thwart them, Pagans often wore protective garlands of herbs and flowers. One of the most powerful of them was a plant called ‘chase-devil’, which is known today as St. John’s Wart and still used by modern herbalists as a mood stabilizer.

If Mayor Rob Ford resigns (which he should),
what will the Media Maggots do with all their spare time!?
‘Constant Circus’ Around
Rob Ford A Distraction,
But Prime Minister Harper and his croney Duffy love it!
Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford has been embroiled for the past week in a scandal involving his alleged use of crack cocaine.
The problems for Rob Ford continue to mount. Perhaps the most damaging for Ford and his family is the
Globe and Mail investigation: The Ford family’s history with drug dealing.
This drug scandal may not be all it’s cracked up to be.
I think it’s time that the Ford brother’s and the media to meet and try to hash things out.
Maybe they can make a deal!
It’s time for Rob Ford to do the right thing and resign. Doug Ford would be wise to announce his “retirement” too!
The Ford Brothers “dynasty is in ruins ~ “They go out there and they want to write these stories. They want to try and ruin our family,” he said. “They want to go after the character of our family.”
The problem for the Fords is that there are quite a few “THEYS” who are investigating them
“WE” are tired of this incredible Mickey Mouse farce of a politician called Rob Ford!
It’s difficult for people to trust Rob Ford.
“I don’t do drugs and if I ever did I’ve forgotten about it. That’s the truth … and I’m sticking to it (for now).” ~ Rob Ford
How can the city continue to function with him as mayor?

Exercise science is a fine and intellectually fascinating thing. But sometimes you just want someone to lay out guidelines for how to put the newest fitness research into practice.
The Scientific 7-Minute Workout may be just what the doctor ordered!
Perform each exercise for 30 seconds ~ very intense.
Rest 10 seconds!
An article in the May-June issue of the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal does just that. In 12 exercises deploying only body weight, a chair and a wall, it fulfills the latest mandates for high-intensity effort, which essentially combines a long run and a visit to the weight room into about seven minutes of steady discomfort — all of it based on science.
“There’s very good evidence” that high-intensity interval training provides “many of the fitness benefits of prolonged endurance training but in much less time,” says Chris Jordan, the director of exercise physiology at the Human Performance Institute in Orlando, Fla., and co-author of the new article.
Work by scientists at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and other institutions shows, for instance, that even a few minutes of training at an intensity approaching your maximum capacity produces molecular changes within muscles comparable to those of several hours of running or bike riding.
Interval training, though, requires intervals; the extremely intense activity must be intermingled with brief periods of recovery. In the program outlined by Mr. Jordan and his colleagues, this recovery is provided in part by a 10-second rest between exercises. But even more, he says, it’s accomplished by alternating an exercise that emphasizes the large muscles in the upper body with those in the lower body. During the intermezzo, the unexercised muscles have a moment to, metaphorically, catch their breath, which makes the order of the exercises important.
The exercises should be performed in rapid succession, allowing 30 seconds for each, while, throughout, the intensity hovers at about an 8 on a discomfort scale of 1 to 10, Mr. Jordan says. Those seven minutes should be, in a word, unpleasant. The upside is, after seven minutes, you’re done.

Happy National Weed Day
MARIJUANA IS FALLING FROM THE SKY
Initiative 502, passed last month by Washington voters, legalized recreational marijuana use starting December 6, but it will take a year before there are rules for growing and selling it.
But a legal haze still engulfed pot smokers Thursday, when possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults become legal, though growing and selling it remains a crime.
”So I’m not sure where you’re suppose to get it,” Satterberg said. “If you stumble across some on the street or it falls from the sky, then you can have it. Otherwise, you are part of a criminal chain of distribution.”
Can’t believe we have a National Weed Day?? What a great place to live!
The origins of 420 are a bit cloudy and covered in smoke.
National Weed Day is an informal sub-culture holiday that takes place on April 20th annually, in honor of the marijuana buzz term 420. Also known as ‘National Smoke Day’
Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs will host what the company is billing as “the nation’s largest commercial celebration of 420, a holiday dedicated to those who enjoy the ‘high’ life of cannabis culture,” according to a news release.
The sandwich chain, which has an Iowa City location at 314 E. Burlington St., is offering a meal deal April 20 — a 4-inch sub, chips and a drink for $4.20. All meals will be served on Frisbees.
All-day festivities are planned at Cheba Hut locations nationally, including live music, ranch dressing and pickle juice chugging contests, Kool-Aid dunk tanks.

Two garlic cloves One day two garlic cloves, who were best friends, were walking together down the street. They stepped off the curb and a speeding car came around the corner and ran one of them over. The uninjured garlic clove called 911 and helped his injured friend as best he was able. The injured garlic clove was taken to emergency at the hospital and rushed into surgery. After a long and agonizing wait, the doctor finally appeared. He told the uninjured garlic clove, “I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that your friend is going to pull through.” “The bad news is that he’s going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life”.
