Daylight savings 2012 is this Sunday March 11 dont forget. It always begins on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November. Remember to “Spring Ahead” move all those clocks an hour ahead.
This is the time of year where time travel is possible. Yes you can go forward or back in time one hour on this great day! All you have to do is get up at 2 AM.
Daylight Savings Time, first established in 1918, is designed to add an hour of sunlight to the end of the day during the warm weather months, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The period of time was extended in 2007 by one month to encourage energy savings and more after hour shopping. (As if more people are gonna be less tired after work.Oooook Congress folks!)
While surfing I found some cool facts about DST, the history of it and all. Did you know that Arizona chose to be exempt from DST. The entire state does not observe DST with the exception of the large Navajo Indian Reservation.
Spring brings changes. Right now I have noticed a few pushes of my own on the arise. Have you ever had that feeling that situations just push you toward something new -different? I’ve been having a lot of that lately. So to keep the universe from totally driving me insane, here are my four goals for the spring:
- Complete the ‘housing issue.”- enough said.
- Begin the 501(c)3 – The Pink Grasshopper (it’s been in the works for years now)
- Secure a family YMCA membership.
- Determine if I’m gonna sista lock my hair or keep the big happy fro.(Oh, how I LOVE my fro! )
Spring it forward folks!
