if anyone else enjoyed that "Blue Moon" Saturday night as much as I did?  I stood outside for a while waiting and waiting for it to look blue to me but it never did.  However, it was beautiful and I left my shades up all night so I could check on it occasionally to see if I could catch the blue in it.  Just like waiting for Santa or for a pot of water to boil, it didn't happen while I was watching.   :cry:

Vivian,

"Blue moons" get their name from the fact that they are the second full moons in a calendar month.  I don't know why it's known by that color.

desmond i'm pretty sure that the term blue moon comes the fact that astronmers saw the distinct blue color through theit telscopes.

Desmond, I knew why they were called that.  I just thought we could have a really good discussion about something other than racing because I was feeling kind of devilish!   :mrgreen:

And Ron, I thought it was because lovers were sad because they weren't with their own lover.   :?

Sure gives me something else to think about although I am an old romantic and sentimentalist at heart, so like the lovers idea.   :wink:

Back in that day, moonshine and other illegal liquors were quite potent I guess.

Lou, so good to have you back with us.  Tell me, did the moonshiners run on dark nights or when the moon was bright?? :twisted:
