I am an RN who takes care of orthopedic patients every work day. My suggestion is to have surgery early in the week Monday or Tues , if possible. Then your hubby can be discharged hopefully prior to the weekend. It is not necessary to consult the moon, just advise him to be an active participant in his care. A word to the wise: walk, walk, walk! My husband has had both knees done he can climb a ladder with 50 lb bag feed he is a rancher.
He can carry large hay bales. He gets on the roof of our house. He had a great Dr. PRAY first tell your husband to do the exercises it may hurt at first but will be worth it. Move move move it heals the body quicker and does not let the knees muscles lock up. Much luck Never have surgery on Friday!! First purchased your wonderful magazine to help my husband fish. Got hooked on it! Your old magazine lay-out included anonymous quotes that I also used to enjoy. Keep up the good work, but why fix something that isn't broke? One of your biggest fans!! Judy from Milwaukee.
Hi, Judy, You have made our day with your lively and generous comment. Thank you very much for your loyalty to this Almanac! The only time this might not appear is on the Calendar Pages because there is so little space. Sometimes proverbs or adages or folklore appears without attribution; that may be what you are thinking about.
I'm 65 years old now buy I remember having a Farmers Almanac in my home as a small child. My parents had farming backgrounds in Oklahoma and forever kept the almanac within their reach. Now sharing this with my own children. Some of the more ''far out'', incredible information I've learned about the moon extends well beyond the quaint folklore about it catching rain or enhancing plant growth.
Radio transmissions directly from Apollo were intercepted by an independent Ham operator confirming this encounter. The FAA footage, evidence of this event was pirated from "men in black" who visited the FAA's 2nd in command who was later interviewed by Dr. Steven Greer, founder of The Disclosure Project.

I am trying to find out what the twin days are for planting butterbeans. Any info appreciated please. Twin days are when the Moon is in the astrological sign of Gemini the Twins. Been reading Old Farmer's Almanac for forty years.
Someone nicked my issue so I had to go online! Our sources say that the Algonquin tribe sometimes used this name. The Choctaw used a similar name, "Little Famine Moon. You are all over the news today! I buy the Almanac at Hennings mkt in PA, and luv your garden calendar with the beautiful art.
Main stream media is shocked you rightly called the colder winter and our gov experts did not. Saw an article that said it was dubious back in Aug! A good pair of binoculars should allow you to see Jupiter's four largest moons, appearing as bright dots on either side of the planet.
