Pond scum

Jilda and I both were like sore-tail-cats today. I don't think we're sick, and there's nothing troubling us...except this damn time change. I'm sorry for the bad language, but there's no other way to describe just how we feel about "Springing Forward". 

Researchers say it doesn't help farmers, it doesn't save energy. I did make people sicker, have more heart attacks, and spend more money. 

If I were to put on my root-cause-analysis hat, the "Spend More Money" would have been a DING DING DING DING moment. The real reason we have daylight savings time is that it makes more money for business and in turn politicians.  

One of the Native American sites had this to offer:

‘Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket.’

Nuff said.

Feeling lower than pond scum on the first day of daylight savings time.


  1. Getting up the past two mornings have been cruel. though I love the longer days, I wish they would just leave it one way or the other. I dont see where it matters either way. Mother nature has its own daylight savings time.

  2. I like the Native American quote about cutting one foot off one end of a blanket and sewing it to the other end. I think it should be put to a referendum wether to leave time change alone or change it. I'm sure more people would vote to leave time changes alone... We should take the advice of the Native American "Follow the rhythm of nature, rise with the sun and retire with the sun."

  3. How I love that quote! The rationale behind daylight saving time is beyond my little brain.

  4. How true it is. We are approaching the other end of daylight saving here. And how I wish we could just leave it be...

  5. What a difference that hour makes. I'll be missing it till it comes back to us in the Fall.

  6. Living in the present is sometimes the best thing you can do when the mind has a mind of its own.
