Happy Michaelmas, everyone!

Tomorrow is Michaelmas if your parish is named St. Michael's or St. Michael and All Angels.   Also if your parish is something like "Grace" and has adopted St. Michael as a patron. Otherwise you must wait until Monday.  Party on!

Mickle Mirth at Michaelmas, 2005:

The church in the picture, St. Michael's in Norman, Oklahoma, no longer has a medieval banquet as part of their patronal festivities.  Nowadays they have a fair, which was on Saturday last week.

What the moon looks like now

A nice site provided by the U.S. Naval Observatory allows us to see the moon (in a manner of speaking) even when conditions do not favor naked-eye observation.
