It's midsummer day. Today is the longest day, and tonight will be the shortest night of the year. The sun reaches its highest point in the sky at midday today, and hangs motionless at 6 minutes past 6 this evening with minimal north or southwards motion. It's a magical time of year.
I hope 2007 has been good to you so far, and will continue to be so. Enjoy this special day.
 In the northern hemisphere. If you live in the southern hemisphere it's midwinter. And if you live on the equator it's just another day, hot, with a high chance of thunderstorms later.
