Hey, more daylight this year!

Back in 2005 Congress sent legislation to the White House and Bush signed it.

Besides creating tax benefits for those who bought hybrids (and there's lots more, of course), The Energy Policy Act of 2005 has another interesting twist that will affect everyone in the US (well, except for Arizona and some parts of Indiana...).

Beginning this year DST changes in the United States.

We'll enjoy four more weeks of DST, two in March (begins the second Sunday in March) and one in November (ends the first Sunday in November).

For those of us who think DST is silly and we should just go on DST and never come off it, at least it's a step in the right direction.

For the rest of you, it's just more of the same botheration at a different time.

Either way, don't forget to change the batteries in your Smoke Detectors!

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

DST did a job on me
Now I am a real sickie
Guess I'm gonna have to tell 'em
That I got no cerebellum
All the girls are in love with me
I'm a teenage labotomy
