I'ld love to put a pic up( but no NSFW section)!

But on another note, this so-called "nor-easter" is clouding any chance of a real moon shot.

I rushed home from work last night, batteling the subways since the east side line was closed. By the time I got up to our roof to take some pictures with the city in the background the sky was so overcast you couldn't even see it. Last night's moon was a harvest moon and it was 12% larger than a normal full moon.

When I worked as a receptionist for a vet, we definitely DID notice more weird calls and people on a full moon. I myself went ballistic yesterday; a full blown menopausal moment brought on by trying to be nice to a son of a friend and wasting a perfectly beautiful fall day listening to his hard-rock band for 2 or 3 hours. I got home and was mean to everyone. Luckily "everyone" was my poor husband and dog. I made appropriate mea culpas and made a wonderful fettucini and cheese dinner. Actually, a couple of hours of hard rock blasting into my head would make me mean without the full moon and menopause.

Well, I can attest to the full moon bringing on many births!! My first granddaughter was born 12:22 a.m. Saturday!!!!! My daughter had to be induced because of high BP and she said that when she got to the hospital there was a long waiting line of women waiting. I know that I kept hearing new baby cries about every 5-7 minutes from the time I got there at 3:30 p.m. Friday until about 2 a.m. Saturday. There were so many that they ran out of rooms to move many of them to!!! Sorry but I was not even interested in taking a pic of the moon; had a better subject to take pics of!!!!

Claire, I agree, that would make anyone a bit mean.

Shunka, congratulations!! What a cool thing! I have heard about the full moon bringing on babies before too. Also heard that about hurricanes. Barometric pressure or something?

My own personal crabby moment came this morning. Hmmm...wish I could blame it on the full moon!

Congratulations, Shunka!!! Hope we get to see some of the pics you did take.

Having been a bartender 100 yrs ago, I know the full moon has an effect on people.
