It’s now time to order your 2018 edition of Baer’s Almanac. The price is the same as last year, but there’s a whole new world of information here!
For example, you know Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, but do you know about his pursuit of the hydrofoil? And speaking of inventors, you’ll learn about Thomas Edison’s first invention, and the development of the “QWERTY” keyboard first used on typewriters. Why did the U.S.S. Scorpion disappear in 1968 and how did the 8-hour workday originate? You’ll learn all this and more in our 2018 almanac!
Explore the interesting career of Robert Ripley, of “believe it or not” fame and his so-called “odditorium.” Learn about the longest border between two countries in the world-you guessed it if you said it’s the U.S. and Canada. Read the interesting story of Andrew Jackson Downing, America’s first landscape architect.
As usual all the regular features are here: a full year of weather predictions, sun and moon risings and settings, planetary events and planting recommendations.
Find out the dates of the five eclipses for 2018-two of the moon and three of the sun. There’s always a fishing calendar for the anglers and a lot of just plain fun facts to share with your friends-a recipe for fast nacht kuchen (doughnuts) or the name of the first fennel to be an All America plant winner!
