Last Time Passover, Rather Than Easter, Fell On ‘April 1’.

Easter, this year (i.e., 2018), falls on Sunday, April 1. That is perfectly fine in that it is well within the March 22 to April 25 window for Easter.

The only this that is STRANGE, very strange, is that Easter has not fallen on April 1 in 62-years! Last time was in 1956. That is the LARGEST gap between Easter falling on the same day, in this case, April 1.

So, I was curious as to see when Passover has begun on April 1. The window for Passover is March 21 to April 20. So, again, April 1 is very much within the range. As you can see from the graphic the last time was in 1988 and before that 1950. That was a 38-year gap. The 2026 also happens after a 38-year gap. Neato.

An early Marconi radio.

IF you think about it it is pretty amazing that somebody worked out that ‘it’ could be done.

Revolutionized the world.

He was Italian nobility, hence the title ‘1st Marquis‘.

Spend a minute today thinking of Marconi and what he gave the world. Quite the MAN.

It predates the French Revolution.

The French version, with the ANGLED blade, was created as their means of delivering humane capital punishment. It was the brainchild of a French doctor, Joseph-Ignace Guillotin — which is how we get that name.

The first to be executed, with a French Guillotine, on April 25, 1792, was a on highwayman, 

‘Pelletier’ is a fairly popular French name in New Hampshire.
