Daylight Savings Time ~

I don't mind going back to daylight saving time. 
With inflation, the hour will be the only thing I've saved all year...

It's here once again.  It’s almost time to spring forward! 
Daylight saving time begins this Sunday, March 11, at 2:00 a.m
. And yes, this is the one where you lose an hour of sleep. 

But don’t fret! That means you gain one more precious hour of
 sunlight at the end of the day to beat those end-of-winter doldrums.

So don’t forget to set any clocks that aren’t on a smart device ahead
 one hour before heading to bed Saturday night.  And get ready to 
have your microwave display the wrong time for the next 8 months 
because you don’t want to break out the instruction manual.

Lawmakers in Florida are tired of the whole "fall back" 
and "spring forward" rigamarole. So they've approved a bill to keep 
Daylight Saving Time going throughout the year in their state.

The bill now goes to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott -- but it's
 far from a done deal after that.  Even if the governor approves, 
a change like this will literally take an act of Congress.

But if all is approved, Floridians -- who'll set their clocks
 ahead one hour this Sunday when Daylight Saving Time
 begins, won't have to mess with it ever again.  

Florida will then join Hawaii and most of Arizona, the two places 
that are exempt from the Uniform Time Act of 1966. The Act established 
the system of uniform Daylight Saving Time throughout the  US.

My heart grieves for our Brutus and Shadow.  Everyday.
  Some days the grief attacks me stronger than others. Today is 
one of those days.  Little Shadow.  Full of life.  Brutus, the day
 came into our lives you changed it forever.  Both dada and I
 will never be the same.  You had us from  ~meow~

So after all is said and done, do not forget to change those clocks tonight.
We are closer to spring everyday.  Warmer days are coming.  For many
 this means that the clock in the car will finally be correct.

Don't forget it's daylight savings time. You spring forward, 
then you fall back. It's like Robert Downey Jr. getting out of bed...
