  1. Hi Ed,
    I read your blogs about leap year and your love of mathematics..
    It made think.. so this year is leap year.. In fact every year is 365 1/4 days long and the “leap day” only gets a date on the begining of the day following 28 February on leap year. The date is 29 February which occurs once every four years on leap year. What happens to the 1/4 day every year? It appears to occcur when the earth has made a 1/4 turn rouns its axis, a 1/4 turn that coincides exactly with a full circuit of the earth round the sun.
    Regards,
