Presidential Proclamation — Columbus Day,

COLUMBUS DAY, 2014 [Monday, October 13, 2014]

There will be another Full Moon, October 8, 2014 at 3:50 A.M. Las Vegas time.

From The Old Farmer’s Almanac
“In 2014, the Full Moon falls on October 8—and there is a total lunar eclipse.”

“The eclipse will be fully visible from Western North America (and Alaska and Hawaii), but observers in Eastern North America will only be able to see part of the eclipse before the Moon sets below the horizon. See more details on our Eclipse page.”

“Some Native American tribes referred to this Moon as the Full Hunter’s Moon, as it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. This full Moon is also called the Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.”

“This is the first Full Moon following the Harvest Moon last month. It rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long.”

National Taco Day

From NationalTacoDay.Com
“Last year Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos!
That’s 490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back or, if you prefer, could, at 775-million pounds, equal the weight of two Empire State Buildings.”

“The word taco is the Mexican equivalent of the English word sandwich. The tortilla, which is made of corn or wheat, is wrapped or folded around a filling that is generally made of spiced proteins such as beef, pork or fish”
