You left in God-speed-time.

Continuing to twinkle world wide.


October’s birthstone is OPAL Asian cultures believe it to be a gem of hope. Aborigines of Australia believe opal was left behind by an ancestor as a sign of his or her presence. Opal as a gift is said to mean faithfulness and confidence.

In Trinidad and Tobago, Calypso History Month is October.

In the old Roman calendars, October was the eight month of the year and got its name from the word Octo meaning eight.
