I grew up hearing tidbits of information or interesting facts from it, and would always make sure that I had enough money to buy her a new one each Christmas. I always knew that it was be well received and so appreciated. But Grama passed on, and i grew up leaving behind the Almanac tradition.
When i received one in the mail to review, I was instantly brought back, and flooded with memories seeing that old familiar cover. I immediately started flipping through it, and found a recipe for Dark Chocolate Chile Balls(omg. YES!), and the weather forecast for winter and summer(famous for 80% accuracy!), fell in LOVE the astronomy section, and was pleased to see a gardening section(i need all the help i can get here!!). There is SO much information to be read! I was also REALLY happy to see a page with a 'Table of Measures' and Metric Conversion(I need lots of help with this too!).
