Hank's Thoughts


Today is The IRS Tax day. Aren't you glad its over? Have you ever noticed that when you put them together the initials spell THEIRS?

Easter Sunday is coming. I have often wondered why it falls on different dates each year. Why isn't it on a fixed date like Christmas, Labor Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and so forth?

I finally found out by diligent research (aka clicking on Google). The Easter season means different things to different people around the world. Some celebrate it for a whole month. Western Christians celebrate Easter on the Sunday on or after the full moon that follows the nominal date of the Equinox -- March 21st. The equinox itself occurs each year on March 20, 21 or 22. Since the rotation of the moon does not share the Earth's calendar, Easter falls on different calendar dates from year to year.

There, now you know!

It's April -- Springtime in many places, variable weather in Southern California, where we never know what to expect from week to week. We keep hoping Summer will eventually arrive and stay for awhile.  Here are four anniversaries that fall in April:


Four Notable

Anniversaries in April

GalileoGalileo, the famous astronomer who was condemned by the Catholic Church, first demonstrated his telescope to scholars on the night of April 14, 1611. That was 400 years ago.  Today the Hubble telescope circles the earth. It is a far cry from his crude instrument, and it sends us photos of galaxies in the universe millions of light years away.

Franklin D. RooseveltFDR (who could not walk but talked with a silver tongue) is acknowledged by many as the greatest U.S. president. He was certainly the longest president (three terms). He died April 12 1945 in Warm Springs Georgia, shortly before the end of WWII. He promoted the beginning of many revolutionary social programs we still have today as well as laws and rules to regulate Wall Street.

Charlie ChaplinChaplie Chaplin was born in England April 16 1889 and died Christmas day 1977. Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" Chaplin, KBE, was an English comic actor, film director and composer best-known for his work during the silent film era. An icon of the movie industry, he became one of the most famous film stars in the world before the end of the First World War.

Richard NixonRichard Nixon, the 37th President of the United States was born on January 9, 1913 in a small farmhouse in Yorba Linda, California. He died on April 22, 1994 in New York City and was buried on the grounds of the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, at the side of his First Lady, on April 27, 1994. He was one of five brothers who shared a small bedroom in the tiny house.  He played five musical instruments.
