Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

In the spirit of one of our topics as we might just be able to do this.

May is National Bike Month, sponsored by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.

Of course at the end of the month is Memorial Day as well for the holiday topic....

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

I should have meantioned that on earth the week with the 22nd of april is earth day. A day to clean and reflect at our place that we live in with hope of keeping it clean for future generations. This might also be something to think of with mars looming nearer every day for man to live on. Would we want a place that will not support life...
