Spring forward…Fall back….

"I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind… At the back of the Daylight Saving scheme, I detect the bony, blue-fingered hand of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get them up earlier, to make them healthy, wealthy, and wise in spite of themselves."
— Robertson Davies (The Papers of Samuel Marchbanks)

Here are some ideas for learning about Daylight Saving Time which begins March 8, 2009.  Remember: Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery.
