Sorry folks, I did not make it clear. The firstDayOfMonth and
lastDayOfMonth was defined earlier in let ... in structure.
The problem here is, ghc warned me that "_" and "lastDayOfMonth" was
overlapped. And the results showed that, everything that should be
worked with "Mider" was done by "not_ ...".
