    Hope everyone got their extra hour of sleep last weekend, I am glad we have gone back to the slower time frame. I guess the daylight savings time is an advantage to those who have to get up and go to work at a public job. That way they can get home earlier in the afternoon, to get some chores done at home, such as mowing their lawn, working the garden or whatever needs to be done during the daylight hours.
