A slight note: I have, purposely, kept as many of Dr. Phyllis Jestice's entries as she wrote them because I enjoy her wry humor in the entries. She was careful to deliniate the source material she was using (switching sources in June of each year. If you are interested, I can send you her list.) I have also done the same for the earlier chroniclers, as some of those entries are wonderfully tongue-in-cheek too. Although, I admit, I didn't save the limericks. :)
       
happy reading,
