biggest moon we've seen for 15 years

tonight is the biggest full moon for 15 years.

And the phenomenon coincides with the annual Geminid meteor shower which begins tonight and continues for two days.

Typical. After several days of clear frosty nights it is forecast to rain tonight so we won't see the moon!

If it is as some say a fact that the moon can make some people go mad, does it mean that an even bigger moon than usual will make more people go mad, or just those who usually go mad at the time of a full moon go even more mad than they usually would?

I am staying in tonight!

there will be a stronger pull, bigger waves in the oceans by one and a half feet, so those that are affected by the pull of the moon may have problems too, hopefully their medication will cover variations.

Load up with Silver Bullets tonight.

people most affected are Portuguese who originate from the isle of Madeira but not all.

[in the medical world it is nicknamed madeira madness]

I had some of that madness after drinking the best part of a bottle of the stuff when I didn't know any better.

That means I will have more hair on the palms of my hands than usual.

I have put a cross on the front door just in case as i have no silver bullets.

hoping its a clear night to see the moon/shooting stars i have a telescope at the ready for tonight.
