Stuff and Such

  • Tomorrow we have to swtich our clocks for Daylight Saving Time.  Spring forward, fall back.  I hate Daylight Saving Time. Here’s a little secret: you don’t actually get more daylight, you just shift when in the day you get it. Hours of actual daylight – the same.  All this is going to do is make it dark again when I have to go to teach my 8 a.m. class (which will feel like a 7 a.m. class), just when it was starting to be light when I left for my 8 a.m. class. Stupid Daylight Saving Time!
  • It is now legal to keep chickens in your yard in Vancouver. I’m not making that up.  Maybe my dad will come visit me now – he likes chickens!
  • Congratulations to Terrace, BC  which was named Hockeyville 2009!  Their prize includes $100,000 of arena upgrades and an NHL pre-season game being played in their town.
