   This year the Old Farmer's Almanac is celebrating it's 225th year of publication. I was first introduced to the Almanac by my friends from the Northeast and Midwest who use to bring their horses for the show season in the Winter to our  farm in Wellington, Florida. They were always sure of what kind of  Horse Show Season weather we were going to have from January through April, because according to them, the Farmer's Almanac predictions were always accurate. That was a a long time ago, and the internet was just gaining ground. What is so exciting now is that you can get all this information on the online version and even more on the hard copy. The cover gleams with comforting graphics of American History. Even if you are not a farmer, there is lots of useful everyday advice for anyone.
