I read that as Peach Smeach.

Time for new glasses.

Well I tried out “Pesach Sameach” on a couple of guys at work, but they only got the “Pesach” part.  Alas, that’s Americans for you.  Happy Passover to everyone who observes.

Only saw the good wishes today (shows how unobservant I am). Thanks to one and all (you make one feel one’s among friends), and a happy Easter to all concerned—and a better, cleaner, more peaceful rest of the year to all of us.

Amen to that and a Happy Easter to all. And a thought for all those over the centuries who have struggled with the complexities of calculating its date. A new term, at least to me although I’m sure oeco and others know it, Computus, “the calculation of the date of Easter in terms of, first, the Julian and, later, the Gregorian calendar.”

This year Orthodox Easter isn’t until May 5, the greatest divergence since 2002 (which had the same dates for Gregorian and Julian Easter as this year).
