Yes, but that requires that you know when the first full moon after the vernal equinox is. The golden numbers allow you to work out when Easter Sunday falls on any year up to 50 years ahead IIRC.

I keep getting texts and robocalls from a phone company that isn't mine. They are telling me they are going to be doing my requested repair before 9PM today. I tried replying that I was not their customer, but that didn't change anything. Finally, I called the company and talked to a tech who said they probably keyed in the wrong contact number for the person. He said he would try to track it back to my cell phone number but couldn't promise anything. I guess I will just continue to get these messages until the person's repairs are done. Meanwhile, they are not getting any notifications!

It always seems to go like this! Weather forecast - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,, or partly cloudy. I order materials to replace my roof last week. I tear off the shingles on a nice Monday day. Roof materials arrive on Tuesday, as ordered. Morning - sunny, project is going very well. Got the first layer of EPDM rubber roof down. Glue has to be applied to dray surface of roof, and to rubber, allowed to dry, and then put the rubber in place. Clouds roll in. It rains for 10 minutes. Can't do any more. Hope the bad weather blows over. Unroll more rubber to protect my house from more rain. Use it like a tarp. Put 5 gallon glue containers in strategic places to hold it down. The wind picks up and nearly blows the rubber off, sends one unopened glue pail 2 stories to the ground where the top comes of and spills half the pail. Fortunately, I bought extra. Day is shot.

Weather forecast for today is sunny. Woke up to overcast, wind is gone at least. It's supposed to start clearing up by noon. I was supposed to have the rented ladder back to the hardware store by 9 a.m. Instead, I'll have to start the project again at 10 a.m., when the sun can help dry the glue. This should have been a two day project. It was so easy when the weather was good. Prayers have been said. I guess this just was supposed to be one of my challenges to overcome. But hey, I saved $1000 by doing it myself.

1 scary incident: walked on a place where the glue had been applied before it started raining. It was dry. Had to gather some of the rubber roof and maneuver it into place. It started raining. The roof became as slippery as ice. I was on the west edge of the roof, right on the edge. My feet went out from under me and I fell straight down onto the roof. Fortunately, my clothing provided sufficient friction to prevent me from sliding further westward and off of the roof, or Northward to slide off of the down-slopping roof. Had to crawl to an area with no glue as standing was not an option. I'm still alive and kicking, and the judo falling techniques are still working. Those judo classes have saved me from so much pain and injury over the years.

Anyways, If the weather people are correct, I should be able to complete this project today. I would have been able to complete it safely yesterday except for the rain and wind.

If anyone lives in a drought area feel free to send for me. I only have to peg a few items of laundry on the washing line outside or water my outdoor herb plants to guarantee that it will rain cats and dogs within the hour.

The pain in my left hip and the base of my spine has been the same for more than ten years. All of a sudden this past week, it has increased to right across from my left hip to my spine and on to my right hip. But now it is also going down my left leg right into my calf. And it is not a sometimes pain. It has been around the clock for this past week.

This pain was diagnosed as a circulation problem. What I don't understand is if the pulse in both my feet is strong, then how can it be a circulation problem. According to the Cath Lab, they can not do anything else to help me. I already have five stents. And two of them are in my groin, one on each side. The Vicodin is not doing it anymore. I can either stand or lay down. To sit only increases the pain. I am going to Winthrop tomorrow and I need some answers. What has happened this past week, to cause so much change in my pain level. I can barely walk. And I am determined that I will not go back into that wheelchair again.
