RE: OT: Everyone must be....


Dang you learn something new every day. I did not know that about the
sunsets and sunrises, guess I am not very observant, I always thought it
gained or lost equally morning and night until it hit the solstice and
then it reversed. I found a calendar for L.A. that shows it. In December
it shows the sunset remaining about the same time for weeks while
sunrise is later each day. Then in January it shows the sunrise
remaining at the same time for weeks while the sunset gets later each
day, then the sunrise starts getting a little earlier. Interesting!!

I too suffer mildly from SAD and thank goodness for my strong western
and
southern exposure up on my hill!
    I was interested to find out -- and it is probably true everywhere
--
that the earliest sunset and latest sunrise are not symmetrical around
the
solstice.  Here, the sun sets earliest about 12/12, and the sun rises
latest
about 1/12.  I have always felt that I noticed the days getting longer
(in
the afternoon) around Christmas time and indeed this is the case.
You-all
may want to check out the times for your area -- amazing what a
psychological lift knowing this has given me.
