It’s a Blue Moon day.

During August 2012 we experience a unique event with two Full Moons.  The first full moon occurred on August 1st, with the second happening today. When this occurs the second one is called a “blue moon.” The blue moon name does not mean the moon has a blue hue, it is simply a term used when two [...]

Many children are starting school this week.  Many parents are anxious about the changes this year will bring.  College children are adjusting to their [...]
