Daylight Shifting Time

Today is the first Sunday in April, the official "Spring Ahead" day. It's also one of my very most favorite days of the year. We lost an hour today — not really lost so much as put in the bank. We earn a lot of interest on that hour; that one hour from an April Sunday pays for a later sunset and a longer-seeming day until the last Sunday in October, and then we get it back. Personally, I'd be happy to lose the hour entirely if we could stay on Daylight "Shifting" Time year-round. Winter is when we need daylight most!

But, given that I have little influence over the Powers That Be (much less, the government), I'll have to make the best of what I've got. I have seven months before "They" start turning the lights off much too early for my taste.
