Hi folks, world wide!
I'm Dick Henry, a Professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore,
and I can't devote a lot of time to calendar reform!
But I have become convinced that the world will be a (marginally) better place if we really implement
the C&T Calendar, world wide, on 2006 January 1, and so I'm willing to help in accomplishing this. I hope you'll join me in this ... millions of you.
I did present a PAPER on the subject at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2004 January.
I also presented the same paper privately on 2004 January 4 (= 2004 January 1 C&T) to the Council of the American Astronomical Society,
with the request that they endorse adoption of C&T. They have my request now under consideration.
At the end of my Council presentation there were just two questions asked:
1) "How would the cost compare with the Y2K cost?" and I answered that the cost would be comparable, and "one time only."
"In your heart of hearts, do you really think this reform could possibly be implemented by 2006 Jan 1?"
I didn't answer that last one very well. I really don't know the answer. It is natural to think it to be impossible (I think that is what the
questioner felt), but on the other hand we now have the power of the internet. It is really YOU who will decide whether this is possible or not.
If you are a PC user, you might like to visit the web site
of our Vice President for Poland, Janusz Gerszberg for his C&T software.
What if we MISS 2006 January 1 Sunday?
|The C&T Calendar: Always the same, but here with Gregorian Dates indicated:
|(The day of the week is always the same as in the Gregorian Calendar)
|You can start using the C&T calendar right now; you don't have to wait until 2006
If you would like to appear on this page as Vice-President for YOUR country (or your State/Province, in the case of USA/Canada), just send
me an email (and give me permission to post your email address here).
There is no membership fee, however if you want to mail me a US-dollar check (=cheque),
you may (12515 Meadowood Drive, Silver Spring, MD 21218 USA). Your donation is NOT tax deductible (for you or for me), but I will use the funds only to promote C&T.
Update: Your donation is now tax-deductible through the new Henry Foundation, Inc.
(Just put a note "calendar" on the check, and make the check payable to The Henry Foundation, Inc.)
Finally, a word to supporters of rival calendars. Please switch your support to C&T. With C&T you get all of the benefit of your alternative calendar,
plus hope that we could get actual implementation. The key is compatibility of C&T with the Fourth Commandment of the Bible. I am not
religious myself, but I recognize that calendars with "blank days" and such will simply never be implemented.
