Vol XVI – #213 – A Cloudy Windy Day

Hafta say, I wish they would get rid of Daylight Savings Time (DST).  Either that or put us in the Central Time Zone.  It was bad enough when it ended at the end of  October, but now into November.  I don’t know what benefit DST has been to Michigan.  Added to that is that you have to readjust every spring and… Read more »
