LEAP YEAR

Here's a brief answer to your Q, Jeff --

Leap years are years with 366 days, instead of 365 days. The actual length of a year is 365.242 days. Leap years occur every four years, and years that are evenly divisible by 4 (2004, for example) have 366 days. This extra day is added to the calendar on February 29th.

For a detailed explanation, please browse Wikipedia.

Good luck!

another day to celebrate...

TODAY IS HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S day!!

March 8th is just a day, but we have plenty of time to celebrate the whole of Women's History Month this month!

Young women and girls in third world countries are more vulnerable to the impact of poverty than anyone else. They are not going to have access to education, healthcare, nutrition and jobs. That's why this year, the UN is focusing on having infrastructure in place in those countries for girls and young women."

Enjoy your day all my girl pal
here and around the world!.
