    2011 - 12.29

    If you happen to live on the Island of Samoa in the South Pacific, that’s exactly what you can do! Back in 1892 the international date line was moved to the eastern side of this island to better accommodate trade with California. Today it causes economic issues with trade between two key trade partners, New Zealand and Australia. Thus, the government of Samoa is canceling Friday by moving the international date line to the West!  Rather than being the last country in the world to see the sunset, it will be the first country in the world to see the sunrise! The day December 30th will have never happened in Samoa. No birth dates, no deaths, no marriages, nothing! Gone, plucked from the calendar, non-existant! Just blows my mind. The day that never was. or… The day that controlled the sun!

    Speaking of the sun, this Puma is symbolic of the sun according to Native Americans. It represents a new beginning, looking forward, but I doubt that it includes skipping over days!

    1. You are such a wealth of information….. no really! At this point in my life, I can’t afford to miss any days.

      Mindless information doesn’t count. I agree with you on the lost days thing. There are certainly days I wish to forget, but they don’t include ones that have yet to happen!

    3. Debra, Love the image and the info- Happy New Year to you!
