Spring Forward

It's that time once again, boys and girls, to set your clocks ahead an hour, so don't for get to do it before you go to bed.  Hooray for Day Light Savings time.  Unless, of course, you live in one of those regions that don't have to deal with this stuff, then you can just go to bed and laugh at the rest of us.  I still don't get why have to do this with all our modern technology, it makes little sense.  And talk about messing with the minds of those of us who work over night, sheesh!  But, that's government for you.

Who is this guy standing here?  Well this is the guy you can blame for the modern concept of Day Light Savings Time.  His name was William Willett, he was an outdoorsman & builder.  Figures some enterprising hunter and construction worker would come up with this idea.  Oh, and he was a Brit, but don't hold that against the rest of those fine folks.  Most of them are right sane types.  Can't help it if a few rotten apples get in now and then.
