In the original ten-month Roman calendar, days that marked the position of the moon were named: the calends was the first day of the month, or new moon, and the ides was the middle of the month, or full moon.

You know, I prefer to be just me and not a ruler or a popular star. It is much safer that way. My pups seems to like me but they like my wife better, because she cooks good meals for them.
