It's a leap year

     Leap year had nothing to do with swimwear, not really, but it just was a thought that I had while attempting to get my mind wrapped around getting back to work.  And working does have to do with swimwear.  So - what a strange title to put on a year that has an extra day.  To be specific, each year is 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes, and 12 seconds; thus the need to add an extra day in every 4 years.  But why call it 'leap year'?  Actually - Julius Ceasar is the Father of Leap Year; conception 45 BC..  And in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII further refined the calendar with the rule that leap day would occur in any year divisible by 4.  If you think about this, it make no more sense than my writing about Leap Year instead of swimwear.

     What comes to your mind when you think about the word 'leap'?
     Perhaps -  The Boss, Bruce Stringsteen and the song Leap Of Faith.  This is a great clip of the video

      If you are the brainiac type, quantum leap, which is an atomic electron transition or similar transitions between quantum states, which are scientific phenomena, may automatic play in your mind.

       With the holidays so recently behind us, you may still be thinking about 'Lords a leaping'.

     Or just maybe, you are thinking about this little goody that popped up on Google when I typed in 'Lords a leaping'.   Yep - still trying to figure this one out, but it does
bring me back to where I need to be.  When you look at the site shown below, you will see that it says 'Everyman Speedo'.   Now we are back to swimwear.  Not the type that Exposure Products makes ( not very often anyway ) but swimwear none the less.   

     It's a new year with 366 364 to grow and improve our lives and businesses.   
New post, more business contacts and referrals and helpful tips coming your way.
