me, too. I always feel compelled to explain to relatives in the
Northern Hemisphere why 1 June or whatever other seasonal change
month is not on the solstice or equinox [the other two are equinoxes,
Tom. ;-) ] My first experience of this back in '88 generated quite a
bit of scrambling around the tea room when I asked the same question.
I don't think anyone in the room knew and assumed it was the first of
the month everywhere else in the world. I was in Adelaide at the
time. No offense to Adelaideians.
One of the snide answers was that the first of the month was easier
to remember. Made sense to me.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
