Happy Easter to All.It's too bad that as with Christmas,the real reason for the celebration is becoming secondary.


Only if YOU Let it.

I figured out the chords to "Wings of a Dove" yesterday. I'm ready for Pentecost.

Yeah and we can't talk about it here or the thread gets locked and we'd get banned.



Just pray for him cookieman. Let The Lord do the rest. [wub]

The Spring Equinox? That fell mid week this year so it'd be kind of weird to have the celebration midweek, eh?

We do roast the whole lamb, nice and slow. When we invite non-greeks over their kinda scared at first but when they try the meat they fall in love.


Do you sedate them with ouzo too? That's the right of passage on my Greek side of the family.

And lamb is probably the most delicious of the meats. It's what brought me back from two and half years of vegetarianism. I craved it so badly.

Easter was today for my wife but will be next week for me. We have a split relationship. All is well though. I get two baskets of Easter bunny candy!!

The Orthodox Easter is usually easy to find. Good Friday is the Friday after Passover, except every 17 years or so. Yeah, I know it's weird.


Leave it to a Rocket scientist to muddy up the waters!

Here's the issue, (from Wikipedia):


I LOVE this stuff!!
Computus (Latin for "computation") is the calculation of the date of Easter in the Christian calendar. The name has been used for this procedure since the early Middle Ages, as it was one of the most important computations of the age.

In principle, the date of Easter is defined as the Sunday following the Full Moon following the Northward equinox (the so-called Paschal Full Moon).

But neither the vernal equinox nor the full moon are determined by astronomical observation. Instead, a theoretical model known as the Ecclesiastical Full Moon is used, and the vernal equinox is taken to be set on 21 March. The model assumes that 19 tropical years have the same duration as 235 synodic months (modern value: 234.997).[1]

The computus is thus the procedure of determining the first Sunday after the first ecclesiastical full moon that falls on or after 21 March.

Since the 16th century, there have been differences in calculation in the Western and Eastern Churches. Eastern Orthodox Christians use an ecclesiastical full moon that occurs four to five days later than the western ecclesiastical full moon. The Roman Catholic Church since 1583 has been using the Gregorian Calendar to calculate the fixed date of 21 March, while Eastern Churches continue to use the Julian Calendar.

Well, I'm glad we got that cleared up. [thumbup]


I always knew there was a method to their madness. However, after reading the foregoing, it appears there is a madness to their method. :unsure:

Yup, it's on YourToob. I think it's a "J900"! [woot] A 200 body, with a lozenge shaped sound hole, bling up the wahzoo and then some. The headstock is topped with the image of a dove.

Blingiest guit tar I've seen in a long while. :blink: Probably something Nudie Cohn dreamt up.
