Happy Leap Day !

O.K. so what's with the extra day this year. Was it some astronomer royal hundreds of years ago who decided we needed an extra day in such a beastly month as February? Actually, according to Wired Magazine, it goes back to the times of Julius Caesar. For a list of people born on leap day, and other interesting leap day trivia, see February 29 on Wikipedia . There is even a Leap Year Cocktail!!
