    Does Anyone Know the Date?

    April 2, 1999

    Looking for ways to count down time until the millennium? Tired of reckoning years using boring Western calendars? Want to cook inside-out pizzas? The CalendarZone offers nearly 20 calendar categories, all prefixed with the frightening but true notion "Dates in Calendar are Closer Than They Appear!" Click "Reference Calendars" for many timekeeping essays and techniques, select "Women" for pregnancy and birth-control chronological resources and see "Misc." for variety, including the Holocene Calendar, in which year zero is at the end of the last Ice Age, some 12,000 years ago. And the pizza? The abbreviated name for this site is "calzone," for which it also offers several tasty recipes.
