Once in a . . .

Once in a . . .
Made by AntyDiluvian
Once in a blue moon. How often is that? Not very often. A blue moon is the second full moon to occur in a calendar month. But how often do we have two full moons in a calendar month? According to the folks at obliquity.com (www.obliquity.com/astro/blue2007.html), about 41 times in a century. So, once in a blue moon technically means about once every two-and-a-half years. (See their Blue Moon Calculator: www.obliquity.com/cgi-bin/bluemoon.cgi.) By the way, the Blue Moon on the clock refers to a Belgian-style white beer brewed by Coors.

7.5.09 It's LobsterFest right now at Charlie's Kitchen and I can officially advise against the Lobster mac & cheese. I really thought we were at the point where if you saw mac & cheese on a menu you could be certain you were getting the gourmet cheeses/baked in a ramekin/crunch crust mac & cheese. Nope. Of course, I wasn't ultimately surprised and I suppose it's my own fault. When at Charlies, get a burger. Still love this place.

I had the double cheeseburger with fries, and coke to drink. I just found the 365 Days pool yesterday and this is my first post. Looking through the pictures there, I was moved by the creativity I saw! Here's my first attempt then, at something more interesting than what I've put in this set so far.

I guess Sam Adams beer -- with all those posters dangling from the ceiling -- is the beer of choice at Charlie's Kitchen in Harvard Square. (I like the pressed-tin ceiling in here.)
