My Astrologer has informed me that we have just started Taurus Season, which began on April 19th and goes to May 20th. 
I, of course, thought she was referring to this....

On June 9th, 1946 Ted Williams hit the longest home run ever recorded in Fenway Park.
Traveling an estimated 502 feet, the ball made a hole in the straw hat of Joe Boucher who was visiting Boston from Albany, New York. 
In 1984, the Red Sox installed a lone red seat in the bleachers to commemorate the accomplishment. 
It also makes for a cool picture.

St. Ann's by the Sea Episcopal Church in Kennebunkport, Maine is hoping to be able to reopen in June after suffering the effects of back to back storms in January. 
Durring the summer, visitors are welcome to visit their beautiful church and picnic on the grounds. 
This picture was taken in August of last year.
