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.
