    Call me a waster of time. I have Nautical Almanacs dating back to 1909.
    
    Saving the old ones is understandable, however, my biggest problem is that I
    cannot bear to part with my contemporary almanacs so they occupy a lot of
    valuable shelf space. Fortunately, my wife, who already thinks I have too
    many books, is not very well schooled on astro-navigation so she has no
    inkling of the profligate waste of space that is going on right under her
    nose.
