September blood

Revised prompt

Depict a poetic rendition of the phrase ‘September Blood’. Envision the scene as early autumn leaves that are starting to turn a deep, vibrant red, mimicking the hue of blood. The leaves fall gently against a backdrop of a serene landscape. The sun is setting in the distance, casting a warm orange glow that illuminates the scene. It’s a peaceful, calm September evening, the whisper of the wind lightly rustling the leaves. To add a twist, instead of falling to the ground, the leaves are being carried upwards by the wind, rising towards the richly hued twilight sky.


  • September was Susan’s incorrect answer to a pub quiz question at Rowlands Castle Golf Club in the Pot Luck round.
  • The question was “Which is the longest month of the year?”.
  • Susan’s answer was based on the number of letters in the month.
  • Blood was our answer to the next question, which was “What do haemotologists study?”.

Which is the longest month of the year

The length of a month in the Gregorian calendar, which is the calendar most widely used today, can vary between 28 and 31 days. No month exceeds 31 days, so the longest months of the year are those with 31 days. These months are:

  • January
  • March
  • May
  • July
  • August
  • October
  • December

Each of these months has 31 days, making them the longest months of the year. There is no single month longer than the others among these.

in terms of hours

The length of a month in terms of hours can vary due to two main factors: the number of days in the month and whether the month encompasses the start or end of daylight saving time (in regions that observe it).

For months with 31 days (January, March, May, July, August, October, December), the calculation is straightforward in regions that do not observe daylight saving time changes:

  • 31 days = 31 days × 24 hours/day = 744 hours

However, in regions that observe daylight saving time, one day in March is 23 hours long and one day in October or November (depending on the region) is 25 hours long. This means:

  • March (in regions observing DST and moving the clock forward in March): 743 hours (one hour less)
  • October or November (in regions observing DST and moving the clock back in these months): 745 hours for the month when the change occurs (one hour more)

Therefore, in terms of hours, and excluding the effect of daylight saving time, all months with 31 days are the longest, each having 744 hours. With daylight saving time adjustments, the longest month could technically be 745 hours in regions that push the clock back in October or November, making one of these the “longest” month in terms of hours for those regions.

What do haemotologists study

Hematologists study blood, blood-forming organs, and blood diseases. Their work involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the blood, such as anemia, clotting disorders, leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. They also deal with the study of the components of blood—red and white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, and the mechanisms of coagulation. Their expertise is critical in a wide range of clinical conditions, from managing patients with chronic blood diseases to those requiring bone marrow transplantation.
