Daylight Savings Time

The amount of daylight is a function of where the sun is. Some number has nothing to so with it. I have never liked daylight savings time but since it was something that has been in place for a long time I never questioned it. I did it and went on with life.

Then something happened. In a sign of the pen daylight savings time was changed. My electronics did not know about this pen stroke. My clocks are all reading diffrent times but I know deep down that none of it means anything. There is no software patch for my VCR and I am not going to go to the store and buy a new VCR. So I have turned daylight savings time off.

My watch reads real time. All clocks I am responsible for and that govern my life read real time. It is 9am at the time of me writing this. I will see how log I can last being out of sync with the rest of the world. I think I have a good chance of lasting a long time.

If everyone wants to open there stores go to work and go home a hour earlier that is fine with me. It's just a number.
