Happy August!

 Facts about August

August is the eighth month, renamed by the Romans from Sextilis', meaning sixth, to honor their emperor, Augustus.
August is the height of the summer time in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere. The longest days of the year is passed, but the hot days remain. In the northern regions and mountains, cool nights and early frosts lets one know that the summer is about to come to an end. In the Southern Hemisphere, August means the winter will soon be over.
The birds are already planning to fly south for the winter (except here in OK, where they've probably already flown south to temperatures that don't cook them, mid-flight!). The insects are more noisier and numerous than in any other month. This is perhaps the busiest month for businesses, since most people take their vacations in August.
 Have a wonderful August!
