Silly Picture to Fill Space- A Costa Rican Frog
Yes, since Costa Rica is one of my top countries to seek political asylum in should Mitt Romney become president of the United States, and today is Leap Day, I thought a photo of a Costa Rican frog was in order.
When I went on a cruise to The Bahamas last month, our version of "The Love Boat" captain told us when the sun would set each day.
So, with that it mind and given that the sun has already set in places like Eskisehir, Turkey, as of this posting (it is 1:00 p.m. on the U.S East coast, so I presume it is either 19:00 or 20:00 in Turkey), I will include sunset times for various American cities, some are suburbs while others are college towns, and we have included both Fairfax, Va., and Fairbanks, Alaska, to be cheeky.
Sorry to our Canadian followers, we are snubbing you today, but we hope to post the sunset for Calgary, Alberta, one day real soon.
Here are the sunset times for the following eight American towns, cities and 'burbs (all times are local times); the earliest sunset is for the Chicago suburb of Skokie, Ill., and the latest, as one might expect, is for Honolulu, Hawaii:
Fairfax, Va. 6:01 p.m.
Akron, Ohio 6:16 p.m.
Skokie, Ill. 5:40 p.m.
Boulder, Colo. 5:52 p.m.
Tempe, Ariz. 6:24 p.m.
Palo Alto, Calif. 6:02 p.m.
Fairbanks, Alaska 6:06 p.m.
Honolulu, Hawaii 6:35 p.m.
