The letters L Lunar and S Solar are included with the Saros numbers to help distinguish the series that the eclipse belongs with. The Nodal Family is directly linked with the Saros Series. The North and South represent the node that the eclipse series originates from.

Just want to let you know that your almanac has been in my family for years. I am 70 years old,but I remember my Daddy had one, and it being one of the things that was not looked as " just a book. Later on, I remember one of my sisters using it to check the gestation of certain amimals, I hope that's the right word.
She would breed her pigs, to put eggs in her incubator, go fishing, and so many other things. I had a brother who used it to set crops, set eggs, to fish, and so on.
I still enjoy it to this day. Thank you for so many years of enjoyment. I know you weren't around when I was born tho. Hi, Jan, This made our day! We always enjoy hearing from Almanac fans who represent generations of readership! Same here Jan im not as elder as you, but everything we did around our farm was based on the moon. This knowledge led me to learn how to compile birth natal charts. Our lives are amazing when viewed through astrology. My husband is planning to have knee replacement surgery in the near future.
I would like to know what days are the best to have surgery. My Mother never did anything without consulting the Almanac first! She is now 94 and in the nursing home, so I can't ask her. Please help me out! I am an RN who takes care of orthopedic patients every work day.
My suggestion is to have surgery early in the week Monday or Tues , if possible. Then your hubby can be discharged hopefully prior to the weekend. It is not necessary to consult the moon, just advise him to be an active participant in his care. A word to the wise: walk, walk, walk! My husband has had both knees done he can climb a ladder with 50 lb bag feed he is a rancher. He can carry large hay bales. He gets on the roof of our house. He had a great Dr. PRAY first tell your husband to do the exercises it may hurt at first but will be worth it. Move move move it heals the body quicker and does not let the knees muscles lock up.
Much luck Never have surgery on Friday!! First purchased your wonderful magazine to help my husband fish. Got hooked on it! Your old magazine lay-out included anonymous quotes that I also used to enjoy.
Keep up the good work, but why fix something that isn't broke? One of your biggest fans!!
Judy from Milwaukee. Hi, Judy, You have made our day with your lively and generous comment. Thank you very much for your loyalty to this Almanac! The only time this might not appear is on the Calendar Pages because there is so little space.
