Strange calendar you have. October 2010 was less than a year ago. Cheesy

Re: the last time it happened was 800 years ago

I’m not clever enough to understand what hasn’t happened for 800 years; obviously it’s something to do with the dates in next month’s calendar but I’ve no idea what. Would someone enlighten me please? What is significant about  the 12th (other than it’s a day after my birthday) and 16th July?

Aah , I see now.
Can’t believe this hasn’t happened in the last 800 years; surely all it needs is a 31 day month to start on the Friday. What am I missing?

There's no truth in the rumour that some forum members actually remember the last time it happened  Roll eyes

I certainly remember it happening in 2005 as I got moaned at for sitting by roadside watching Tour de France pass by on Sunday 3rd July. The fact that it was our 40th wedding anniversary didn't help  Embarrassed
