    Things that go bump in the night also go bump in the daylight. Every odd sound you hear in your home is not made by a spirit, but some of them might be. There is a reason why things seem to happen at night. During the day you are occupied. If you hear a thump or the light comes on, you probably wont pay attention to it. If those same things happen at night when the house is quiet, you will pay attention and your attention is what the spirits are looking for.

    Imagine sitting in your home late at night when you hear a sound that doesnt make sense to you. A chair moves in the kitchen; theres a knock on the wall; a creak on the fl oor; walking on the stairs. These are all easy sounds for a spirit to make in hopes of getting our attention.

    That said, when you hear one of these sounds, dont immediately jump to the conclusion its a spirit. Most of the time it wont be. See if you can fi gure out what else might be making the sound. Is it cold outside and your house is contracting? Do you have a pet that may have run up or down the stairs? Perhaps that same pet pushed the chair in the kitchen.

    If youre not able to fi nd a satisfactory reason for the sound and believe its a spirit, see if you can fi gure out who it is. Sit quietly and ask (in your head) for a name. Ask for clarifi cation who might be visiting you and why. Something else that frequently happens is the manipulation of electronics. Lights turning on and off; the TV coming on or shutting off by itself; computer acting up.

    Since everything is energy, its easy for a spirit to play with the gadgets around our home. Again, before you believe its a spirit, make sure you dont have a short in something or a light bulb doesnt need to be changed. If youre sure things are running smoothly, then its time to tune in and see if you can fi gure out whos attempting to communicate with you.

    Thank you for your interest and attention. Till next time, stay in touch with yourself, with your life, and with those loved ones who have moved on.

    On Feb. 25, 1873, Enrico Caruso, the greatest tenor who ever lived, is born. After making New York's Metropolitan Opera his home base in 1904, Caruso recorded

    scores of arias of three- and four-minutes in length -- the longest duration that could fi t on a 78 rpm record.

    On Feb. 26, 1919, more than 800,000 acres of the Grand Canyon is established as a national park. The Grand Canyon is the product of millions of years of excavation by the mighty Colorado River. The chasm is exceptionally deep -- dropping more than a mile into the earth -- and is 15 miles across at its widest point.

    On Feb. 21, 1927, humorist Erma Bombeck is born in Dayton, Ohio. Her fi rst book, "At Wit's End" (1967), comprised a collection of her columns. Among her many other popular books were "The Grass Is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank" (1976) and "If Life Is a Bowl Of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?" (1978).

    On Feb. 27, 1934, auto-safety advocate and activist Ralph Nader is born in Winsted, Conn. Nader's 1965 book "Unsafe at Any Speed" criticized the auto industry for poor safety standards, and ultimately led to various reforms.

    On Feb. 23, 1958, fi ve-time Formula One champion Juan Manuel Fangio of Argentina is kidnapped in Cuba by a group of Fidel Castro's rebels. He was released unharmed several hours after the Cuba Grand Prix.

    On Feb. 24, 1969, after a North Vietnamese mortar shell rocks their Douglas AC-47 gunship, Airman First Class John L.

For saving his fellow crewmembers and the gunship, Airman Levitow was awarded the Medal of Honor.

    On Feb. 22, 1990, the Best New Artist Grammy is awarded to Milli Vanilli.

Four days later, Milli Vanilli's Grammy award was withdrawn.

    On March 3, 1887, Anne Sullivan begins teaching 6-year-old Helen Keller, who lost her sight and hearing after a severe illness at the age of 19 months. Under Sullivan's tutelage, Keller fl ourished, eventually graduating from college and becoming an international lecturer and activist.

    On March 6, 1899, the Imperial Patent Offi ce in Berlin registers Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) on behalf of the German pharmaceutical company Friedrich Bayer & Co. The brand name came from "a" for acetyl, "spir" from the spirea plant (a source of salicin) and the suffi x "in,"

    commonly used for medications.

    On March 2, 1904, Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss, is born in Springfi eld, Mass. Geisel's fi rst book, "And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street," was rejected by more than two dozen publishers before making it into print in 1937.

    On March 1, 1932, Charles Lindbergh III, the 20-month-old son of aviation hero Charles Lindbergh, is kidnapped from the family's new mansion in Hopewell, N.J. Days later the baby's lifeless body was discovered near the Lindbergh home.

    On March 4, 1966, a John Lennon quotation that was ignored in England sets off a media frenzy in America: "We're more popular than Jesus now." Bible Belt disc jockeys declared Lennon's remarks blasphemous and vowed an eternal ban on all Beatles music, past, present and future.

    On March 5, 1977, the Dial-a-President radio program, featuring President Jimmy Carter and CBS news anchorman Walter Cronkite, airs for the fi rst time. Carter answered calls from all over the country from his desk in the Oval Offi ce. Some 9 million calls fl ooded the CBS radio studio during the two-hour broadcast.

    SNOWFLAKESNature provides us with a plethora of beautiful things to observe. Snowfl akes falling from the sky on a cold winters day are an amazing sight, right? Ok! Ok! maybe not here after 3 months of looking at the white stuff but what the heck, as long as long as it's still out there let's take a closer look. Is it really true that it can be too cold to snow? According to Farmers Almanac, that is false. The

    better statement is: It can be too cold to snow heavily. As long as there is a source of moisture and some way to cool the air, it can snow. Most heavy snow events happen when air temperature near the ground is at or above 15 F (-9.4C).

    Wilson A. Bentley of Jericho, Vermont, was an early pioneer in the study and photography of snowfl akes. An exhibit of the Bentley Snow Crystal Collection at the Buffalo Museum of Science at the University of Buffalo in Buffalo, New York, shows the deep interest in snow of the man known as Snowfl ake Bentley. A farm boy who was mostly home-schooled, Bentley had a great interest in nature, and being in one of the snowiest areas of the country, he spent a lot of time studying snow. He photographed snowfl akes using photomicrography, which is photography through a microscope.

    The Jericho Historical Society has mementos of Snowfl ake Bentley in its Museum opened in the lower level of the Old Red Mill in Jericho. Bentley captured 5,000-plus snow crystal photomicrographic images during his lifetime. More than 2,000 of his images are in his book, Snow Crystals, published in 1931.

    The fi rst research grant ever awarded by the American Meteorological Society was given to Snowfl ake Bentley in 1924 for his 40 years of extremely patient work. He had articles published in National Geographic, Country Life, Popular Mechanics, Monthly Weather Review and The New York Times.

    You may recall a set of four commemorative snowfl ake stamps in 2006. The four stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service used four original photographs taken by Dr. Libbrecht. The photos were taken in Fairbanks, Alaska, Houghton, Michigan, and two in Northern Ontario. Dr. Libbrecht also has published a number of books about snowfl akes. Look for them at a bookstore or your local library for much more fascinating snowfl ake information. (continued on page 6)
