Clay Aiken – An Extra Day To See Punky Brewster?

Happy Leap Year Day!!

Once every four years, an extra day is added to the month of February. Instead of 28 days, February has 29 days. It has something to do with the actual time it takes the earth to orbit the sun. It takes the Earth 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 47 seconds to orbit the sun so they have to make up the shortfall!  Hmmm!

February 29 comes with all sorts of traditions and superstitions. Here are a few:

  • Women can propose to men. This tradition  dates back to 5th Century Ireland when St Brigid allegedly struck a deal with St Patrick, allowing women to propose on February 29.
  •  Leap Year Capital of the World.  The city of Anthony in the USA  has nominated itself the Leap Year Capital of the World. It holds a four-day festival to celebrate the occasion. It even has a birthday  for Leap Day babies.
  • Modern Olympics are always held in a Leap Year.  This is a good fun fact. This year’s Olympics will be Rio de Janiero in Brazil. A Leap Year also marks the US Presidential elections.

So…are you proposing to anyone today???

A few days ago, Clay Aiken posted a great tweet that included a picture of his new puppy…

He looks like a cute, little one!!  Well, on Sunday, Clay posted a short video of this pup getting some outside play:

Did you watch the Oscars last night?  Clay was paying some attention to the show.  When the show was over, he posted a few more tweets:

Congrats to Sam Smith for being the first openly gay man to inaccurately claim he is the first openly gay man to win at the
And then…

I’m not trying to be funny and this isn’t insult nor joke… but is that Punky Brewster sitting next to ?

Clay got into a short conversation about the post:

it’s Ashley Biden, his daughter.

Clay responded:
