What is with the time change! Whose idea is it?
There is only so many hours of sunlight, no matter how you slice it. Can we not take a stand like Saskatchewan and NOT Do It. Every year you see people arriving at the end of church service , being late for hockey games, showing up for the last part of soccer. And the fatigue fall out of missing an hours sleep is everywhere, kids cranky at school, drivers yawning and adults complaining. We live in a society that is constantly sleep deprived and yet we mess them up more with deleting an hour. Is this a joke?
It reminds me of women’s dieting, if I buy a diet coke then I can have the BIG MAC, the BIG FRIES and THE BIG DESSERT! Both a public relations trick “which cup is the walnut under”. There is no extra hours of sun. In the winter you go to work and school in the dark and come home in the dark, that is the way it is. And eventually if you wait, it becomes spring then summer and then there is sunlight. That is how it works folks.
I know I sound grouchy but it is because I AM TIRED!
