(Oscars, Oscars, Oscars - and - Leap.)

My head is spinning.  I had no idea so much math and history went into this Leap Year stuff.  It includes Julius Caesar, Greek astronomers, the Roman Republic, B.C. and A.C., the 'solar year,' Popes, a Gregorian calendar, and long division.  I'll finish with this tidbit of science:  Superman was born in a Leap Year, Feb. 29th.   Super men, are hard to come by.

Principle in the type:  "May you grow up to be righteous/May you grow up to be true/May you always know the truth/And see the lights surround you/May you always be courageous/Stand upright and be strong/. . . "      Bob Dylan
