Happy Leap Day


February 29, known as a leap day in the Gregorian calendar, is a date that occurs in  most years that are evenly divisible by 4, such as 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016.  Years that are evenly divisible by 100 do not contain a leap day, with the exception of years that are evenly divisible by 400, which do contain a leap day; thus 1900 did not contain a leap day while 2000 did.  Years containing a leap day are called years.  February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 day remaining until the end of that year.

Today, I am going to visit my nephew and his wife to see their baby, Jude.  He was born a couple of weeks ago and was only 5 lbs 6 oz at birth.
