ChatterArtists of the Month September 2008

Greetings everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Summer and so now, it’s back to business and time for the season of “Fall.”
Now where I come from, we call it “Autumn,” so have you ever wondered why we also call this season “Fall?”

I’m sure you have all noticed how after the Summer Solstice, the days gradually get shorter and the sun begins to set earlier. We literally lose one minute of precious “photographic” light each day until we reach the Winter Solstice and the shortest day of the year. During this time, the sun is literally said to be “falling” from the sky and thus the season became known as the “Fall.”

First up, the Chatterbox website has been refreshed and updated.
So check out the fantastic, new testimonials and the groovy new slideshow here!
