I don’t get the Farmer’s Almanac. It’s been around for 1000 years I think. There are no clear authors but it espouses the predictions for all things from which days you should get a haircut to what our winter weather will be. How do they know these things? Maybe it’s like the messages you get from a Ouija board when asking heartfelt questions; when they are answered from the netherworld, you don’t question, but just accept the wisdom coming through the moving triangular game piece is larger than our mortal minds could ever conjure left to our own devices.
