Interesting idea, but I don't like 13-month systems. It can't be easily divided into thirds or quarters or even halves. I'd rather have 12 months in a 30-30-31 pattern, but perhaps, like your idea, have a 28-day month added in multiples of 28. Rather than have a 14-month year in multiples of 112, perhaps you could have years following multiples of 112 also be leap years, thus, having two 13-month years in a row. -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
