Ok Sailor - It's coming...
the Autumnal Equinox is Monday, Sep 22


There are two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. The Autumnal Equinox in Punta Gorda, Florida is on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 10:29 PM EDT. What this means to us is that our Florida days will soon get cooler with bigger breezes on a regular basis. Bring it on!  ( We will have to pay for the cooler weather and better breezes with some daylight time. )

The company said that Ellison will remain chairman of Oracle’s board and take on the role of chief technology officer. Ellison made a particularly showy splash when he bought the Hawaiian island of Lanai last year. He’s also well known for yachting exploits and recently sponsored the team that won the America’s Cup.
