I just came up with a new plan this morning. Jan, Feb, & November
should have 28 days. December would have 29 or 30 days. The other
months would alternate between 31 and 32. i.e.:

Jan 28
Feb 28
Mar 31
Apr 32
May 31
Jun 32
Jul 31
Aug 32
Sep 31
Oct 32
Nov 28
Dec 29 (or 30)

This way all months of a given year would start on one of two days of
the week. For example if this plan were adopted next year, 1-3,5,7,9,11-12
would all being on a Monday and 4,6,8,10 would all begin on a Thursday.
A calendar would only need at most 4 months and could probably be done
with two.
