Obviously, they're doing something right: The Old Farmer's Almanac has been attracting book buyers since George Washington's first presidential administration. What keeps us coming to the registers are its time-honored weather predictions and folklore; astronomical data; gardening advice; medical cures, recipes, food tips, and much, much more. A classic for good reason.

    Be careful that you are ordering what you really want.

    I wanted an actual calendar, and had no use for an electronic calendar. I requested my money back.
