This Explains It!

The word lunatic is derived from the word lunar.
 My students have been been out of sorts the last couple of days.

Now we know why!

My equine friends don't seem to mind it though!

A friend on Facebook posted that this is the 
Full Moon of the Wolf.

Named by Native American Tribes, 
this moon arrived when howls of hungry wolves could
be heard outside of villages.

Here, it should be known as the Moon of the Coyote.
They have been yipping and carrying on like crazy.
Last night they were right across the creek.

Fun Facts about the Full Moon

Coral mate during the full moon.

Migratory Birds appear to follow the patterns
of the moon for timing and finding their path of migration. 
Auto accidents rise 14%.
Women who have already had children are
likely to give birth on the day of the Full Moon.
I looked this last one up to see if there was any truth to it
in regards to my dear sisters.  It was within three days.

There have been countless studies about the effects of the full moon, 
but most have proven inconclusive or have shown that there is no effect.

Wanna bet?

Just ask anyone who works with groups of children, groups of animals, 
or groups of the chronically mentally ill!
