Full Beaver Moon
Full Beaver Moon

November’s full Beaver Moon rises on Monday, November 30. Learn when to spot it in your area and the meaning behind this Moon’s name.


Plus, on November 29, 2020: [there will be a] Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon. A penumbral eclipse is a type of lunar eclipse. Penumbral eclipses occur when the Moon enters only the faint outer edge of Earth’s shadow (called the penumbra), which causes the Moon to appear slightly darker than usual. The effect is so slight that a penumbral eclipse can be hard to recognize unless you know to look for it! This eclipse is visible from North America. The Moon will enter the penumbra at 2:30 A.M. EST on November 30 (11:30 P.M. PST on November 29) and leave the penumbra at 6:56 A.M. EST (3:56 A.M. PST) on November 30.


The Beaver Moon reaches peak illumination in the early morning hours of Monday, November 30, at 4:30 A.M. EST. Of course, it will be very close to full the night before, so plan to look for it starting on Sunday, November 29, just after sunset!

November’s full Moon was traditionally called the Beaver Moon by a number of Native Americans and colonial Americans. Many Native American groups used the monthly Moons and nature’s corresponding signs as a calendar to track the seasons.

Why the “Beaver” Moon? This is the time of year when beavers begin to take shelter in their lodges, having laid up sufficient stores of food for the long winter ahead. During the time of the fur trade in North America, it was also the season to trap beavers for their thick, winter-ready pelts.

Other November Moon Names
The November full Moon has also been called the Frost Moon and the Freezing Moon. Judging by the chilly weather that becomes more and more common at this time of year, it’s not hard to understand how these names came about! Another name, the Digging (or Scratching) Moon, evokes an image of animals scratching at the fallen leaves, foraging for fallen nuts or remaining shoots of green foliage—with the implication that winter is on its way.

“Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.”

Sex in the City – Denver Style

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Revised June 7, 2011 at 6:30 PM.


The author of this story is not a journalist, just a plain joe with an opinion.

The radio woke me up after I fell asleep listening to the all night coast to coast show. Morning talker Peter Boyles was yapping about the newest (part two of the latest ) Denver Sex Scandal. It’s reported that the current sex business includes a leading mayoral candidate, lawyers, a district attorney as well as so-called business/community leaders of the Denver area.

The following is compiled from hearsay and information from printed text, from a couple of sources. It’s a synopsis gleaned the past three days from the radio, the pages of Westword.Com and KHOW.Com.

Since the following is politically tainted it very well could be a political hit-job. In other words the story could be totally fabricated in order to affect the outcome of a mayoral election. Keep in mind that politicians generally don’t have a working ethical-compass like artists, carpenters, doctors/scientists, electricians, musicians and the like.

Several years ago Denver Judge Edward Nottingham was accused of involvement in a prostitution sting. He resigned his gavel amid accusations that a prostitute *”claims he asked her to lie to investigators and hide[sic] that he paid her for sex.” Seems that one of the call-girls from the same or similar prostitution ring dropped a dime on Denver Mayoral candidate Michael Hancock after recognizing him in the media. The exact date is unclear. The mayors race will be decided very soon – today June 7, 2011 at 7:00 PM Mountain Time. Hancock is expected to win. The leading opposition candidate – Chris Romer – is the son of former Colorado Governor, Roy Romer – whom after leaving Colorado went on to become superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Printed records indicate that Hancock’s personal phone number and name turned up on a journal page along with information that he paid $275.00 for services, more than once. Hancock was a councilman at the time. These records can be accessed here

If Hancock wins this election and these allegations are proven, Denver is going to be in deep Kim Chi to use a well-worn phrase.

Let me say that this is not about trying to nail Hancock. He appears to be a good guy. In fact I would say that he appears to be a really good guy. Also I don’t have a problem with hookers per say. The real crimes here are the crimes of the better-than-thou lawmakers breaking the law. Doesn’t this sort of thing promulgate anarchy. Doesn’t it create anger and mistrust in the community.

I agree with the morning talkers that the double-standard is in overdrive here (my words.) When the legal bitches – and I don’t necessarily mean females – went after the Denver Johns (This was a prostitution sting that focused on poor working class “johns” that were hooking up with street hookers for a few bucks – their names and photos were routinely published on a television program called Johns TV.) nothing was covered up, nothing was glossed over. The Denver Johns were mostly poor, minority dudes. How come the main media is not publishing the names and photos of the so-called stellar community leaders? Huhh! C’mon Denver Post, radio and TV news stations, publish the damn names and photos. Let it fly… Whether or not Hancock is involved, shine a light on these hypocrites. I for one am not holding my breath. Keep in mind that these lawmakers jail and fine offenders for the same “crimes” that they are guilty of. “I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours.”

This same double standard has been going on for years and years. The old-boy club’s rules have been in effect for years and years. How DEEP is the cover-up. Why don’t YOU find out – and demand that the names and photos be published.

*From Channel 9 News: “9Wants to Know has learned Chief Judge Edward Nottingham of Colorado is expected to resign Friday after learning of new allegations filed against him from a former prostitute who claims he asked her to lie to investigators and hide that he paid her for sex.”

New Moon – April 3, 2011

Today's Moon Phase

Your NEW Moon Today – April 3, 2011:
Moon Phase 0%, Moonrise 6:06 A.M, Moonset 7:32 P.M. – Las Vegas, Nevada time.

From The Old Farmer’s Almanac

Moon Question of the Day
Why is there a crecent Moon cutout in outhouse doors?

“According to folklore, if a young woman sees a dove and glimpses the new Moon at the same instant, she should repeat: “Bright Moon, clear Moon, Bright and fair, Lift up your right foot, There’ll be a hair.” When she removes her shoe, she’ll find a hair the color of her future husband’s.” (Say what!)

“The Navajos, among others, believe that the full Moon’s pull on a woman’s amniotic fluids increases the chances of giving birth at this time. Some nurses and midwives claim the new Moon is also an active time for births.”

What Is The Best Hotel In Las Vegas?

“So what is the best hotel in Las Vegas? There is no right answer, because the bachelor party is looking for one experience, the family is looking for another and those six people from Kelowna really just need a few penny slots to keep them occupied between shifts at the buffet. However, I have made a list of some of the best and the top three on that list are simply hard to beat for my money.”

* [sic] “Enocore at Wynn Las Vegas – Maybe it’s the idea of a daybed at Encore Beach Club or a long night at XS or the Mac ‘n Cheese bites at Society Cafe, it could be those, but truthfully, all I really need is an afternoon at Wazuzu and then a late afternoon spa treatment at Encore Spa. Drunken noodles and the Encore Escape Treatment and I am sold on Encore as one of my top three hotels in Las Vegas.”

* Palazzo Resort and Casino – The rooms are hard to beat but you’ll leave because you’ll want to catch a game at Lagasse’s Stadium, you want to learn something about tequila at Dos Caminos and the Blue Man Group, Jersey Boys and Phantom are three of the best shows on the Las Vegas strip. The pool area is spacious and spend any time at Canyon ranch Spa and you’ll be booking a return visit.

* Hotel32 at the Monte Carlo – This always comes as a huge surprise to everyone that asks me the “Best Hotel in Las Vegas” question. I am in love with this place, get me a loft room at Hotel 32 and I’ll see you in a week, I don’t even have to leave, but, I will leave and I’ll walk over to the small lobby and have a conversation with a Suite Assistant and they will make sure that everything is done just right. Room quality, customer service and a very personal touch,that is why you would pick Hotel 32 at Monte Carlo.

Will March 19 ‘supermoon’ trigger disasters?
At least one astrologer thinks quakes, eruptions and huge storms possible

By Natalie Wolchover – Space.Com

On March 19, the moon will swing around Earth more closely than it has in the past 18 years, lighting up the night sky from just 221,567 miles away. On top of that, it will be full. And one astrologer believes it could inflict massive damage on the planet.

Richard Nolle, a noted astrologer who runs the website, has famously termed the upcoming full moon at lunar perigee (the closest approach during its orbit) an “extreme supermoon.” read more…

The EXTREME SUPERMOON will be 100% full Mar 19, 11:10 A.M. Las Vegas time.

“American Indians gave names to each of the full moons to keep track of the passing year. The names are associated with the entire month until the next full moon occurs. Since a lunar month averages 29 days, the dates of the moons change from year to year. Here are titles most closely associated with calendar months” – more from Western Washington University…

Algonquin (Northeast to Great Lakes) word for March’s full Moon, according to WWU is: “namossack kesos” or “catching fish.”

Hopi (Southwest Arizona) term for March’s full Moon, according to WWU is: “osomuyaw” or “moon of the whispering wind.” I personally love this phrase. BC

From The Old Farmer’s Almanac
Historically, the Native Americans who lived in the area that is now the northern and eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons.

Each full Moon name was applied to the entire month in which it occurred. These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the name for March’s full Moon is: Full Worm Moon. At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins – no Native word is given.

Resort will reopen Feb. 11 as Ravella

This is a repost from the LasVegasReviewJournal.Com

Ravella at Lake Las Vegas - LasVegasSun
Ravella at Lake Las Vegas, formerly the Ritz-Carlton - LasVegasSun

“The former Ritz-Carlton at Lake Las Vegas will reopen on Feb. 11 as Ravella.”

“Dolce Hotels and Resorts, which took over the 349-room nongaming property following its closure last May, took the name from the Southern Italian coastal town of Ravello.”

“Joseph Serrano, general manager of the Auld Dubliner Irish Pub and Restaurant in Lake Las Vegas’ MonteLago Village, didn’t really care what name was attached to the hotel.”

“The reopening means increased midweek business for his restaurant and the 35 shops and eateries at the outdoor retail area at the center of the 3,600-acre community that disappeared when Ritz-Carlton pulled out.”

“The fact that the hotel brings back business Monday through Thursday is really a huge driver for all the operators in the village,” Serrano said. “We’re all really encouraged about what the hotel’s reopening will mean to our business” read more from the LVRV.Com
