Monday

Monday Monday

Now, I told you Friday that the Universe will produce something big this 7th day of May, 2018, a Monday.   I'm not sure what that will be, but we will see.   In the meantime, on this day in 1966, the first musical quartet to include two men and two woman, the Mammas and Papas, hit the top of their recording of the song,  Monday, Monday.

In honor of this crazy Monday, here are the lyrics.

Monday Monday
Bah-da bah-da-da-da
Bah-da bah-da-da-da
Bah-da bah-da-da-da
Monday, Monday, so good to me
Monday mornin´, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday mornin´, Monday mornin´ couldn´t guarantee
That Monday evenin´ you would still be here with me
Monday, Monday, can´t trust that day
Monday, Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday mornin´ you gave me no warnin´ of what was to be
Oh Monday, Monday, how could you leave and not take me
Every other day, every other day
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
A-you can find me cryin´ all of the time
Monday, Monday, so good to me
Monday mornin´, it was all I hoped it would be
But Monday mornin´, Monday mornin´ couldn´t guarantee
That Monday…

Was it a UFO?
Hermias Sozomen, in his Ecclesiastical History, notes that "At the time Cyril succeeded Maximus in the government of the church of Jerusalem, the sign of the cross appeared in the heavens:  its radiance was not feeble and divergent like that of comets, but splendid and concentrated.  Its length was about fifteen stadia from Calvary to the Mount of Olives, and its bredth was in proportion to its length.  
"So extraordinary a phenomenon excited universal terror."  
He also stated it was visible for several days and was brighter than the sun.

Apollo Belvedere
Finally, around this date each year, the ancient Greeks and Ionians celebrated the festival known as the Thargelia.  The festival was held in honor of Apollo, god of the Sun, prophecy, music, medicine, and poetry.  It took place on the sacred island of Delos, the traditional birthplace of Apollo and his twin sister, the Moon goddess Artemis.
