Ever wonder why it changes so much? How it's calculated?

Of course you have -- you're a GEEK aren't you? And if you haven't made such a wondering you're GEEK card may be pulled! [Wink]

Yes, it is the first Sunday after the First Full Moon after the Spring Equinox ...

BUT -- there are charts and formulas to use, too!

Ah, but the "full moon" and "equinox" aren't the actual full moon and equinox, they're the "ecclesiastical" full moon and equinox. If the church tells you it's the full moon tonight, and you look out your window and see otherwise, then it's the moon that's wrong.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

_______________________ Okay dumb question here. This is really for the Cath-O-licks. Knowing full well this is the start of Holy Week I have a question about penance I know that some pope declared that fish was not a penance food. But I really like fish so if I was Cath-O-Lick and went to the all you can eat fish restaurant on Friday would it have counted as penance? I mean like I eat fish two three times a week.
