Daily Calendar for Friday, June 21, 2024

In 2023, the Full Moon for June rises on June 3 at 11:42 PM EDT. For some Native Americans, this month’s Moon was called the Strawberry Moon as it was a time for strawberries to ripen. It was known as the Full Rose Moon in Europe and also the Honey Moon.

On National Indigenous Peoples Day (formerly named National Aboriginal Day), Canadians recognize the contributions of the First Nations, MΓ©tis, and Inuit peoples. The holiday is observed on June 21 each year because this date often coincides with the summer solstice, when many indigenous peoples celebrate their culture and heritage.

Question of the Day

How can I remove a photograph that is partially stuck to the glass of a picture frame without ruining the photo?
Try wiping it very gently with a slightly dampened cotton cloth. When the photo has absorbed some of the moisture, pull it gently or scrape under it gently with a thin, flat-edged tool. Remove the photo very carefully. The key here is very little, but just enough, water.

Advice of the Day

Don’t brew beer while beans blossom.

Home Hint of the Day

Fresh grass clippings make excellent garden mulch. Spread the clippings so they’re about 1 inch thick, but don’t bunch them too heavily around young plants, as the grass can burn tender stalks.

Word of the Day

Fear of trees
