    OK Frank,
    
    Have you finally completely forsaken Chicago for Rhode Island?  Rudely enquiring minds want to know.

    06.4' of longitude. During the next three months, the Equation of Time, which 
    is the traditional name for the amount by which the Sun is fast or slow, 
    relative to a true clock, will swing from 16:23 fast to 14:14 slow. Here in 
    central Rhode Island, the Sun reaches the meridian, "high noon", a little 
    more than half an hour before 12:00 o'clock zone time today, while on 
    February 11, the Sun will cross the meridian at almost exactly 12:00 zone 
    time. That's a big change for three short months.
