A bad time for a military campaign...if any of you are contemplating one!

If I were Geoff I'd keep a close eye on the Moderators around him . . . . .

Best to have eaten as much pie as possible yesterday then - it might be the last you'll get.


Useless fact:
The ides were nominally the middle of the month.
March, May, July, October, having 31 days, had their ides on the 15th.
February, having 28 days, had its ides on the 13th.
April, June, September, November, having 30 days, had their ides on the 13th in keeping with February.
January, August and December had 31 days, but they had their ides on the 13th, nonetheless.

Very inelegantly put, that was, wasn't it! If you want to memorise it,
March, May, July, October had their ides on the 15th.
The other months had theirs on the 13th.

Does this mean a nice guitar will suddenly become available?

Any Caesar born today would have been known as Julius Patrick Caesar.
