Not Just Any Leap Year...

The approaching Leap Year could be another occasion for computer glitches. Some computers may not be able to properly calculate the Leap Year. See what ComputerWorld had to say about the Year 2000 Leap Year back in March, 1999.

Find out more about the New Millenium and why the Year 2000 is a Leap Year at the Royal Greenwhich Observatory.*

On a side note, Feb.29 is also Sadie Hawkin's Day. In less liberated times, the rules for courtship were stricter for women. Women wishing to marry their beaus were allowed to pop the question only on one day, every four years. For more details, learn more about Sadie Hawkin's Day.

Things to Do on Family Day

For those of you off work or school on Family Day, Monday, February 21st, there are lots of places to go and things to do.

*Take in some of the sights activities of the Calgary Winter Festival which runs from February 11-21st.

Check out the list of Things To Do on the Found Locally site or check out their Top Calgary Attractions page.

Calgary is home to several interesting museums linked on the CCNA Museum Page.

If you are travelling by car, please remember there is snow and ice outdoors now and you should drive carefully. After all, some of those high snowbanks might block your view of small children who don't always look before they cross streets.

If you are using Calgary Transit, you might want to check your schedules as transit will be on Sunday levels of service on February 21st.
