    If I'm remembering correctly , that's when congress voted to extend Daylight Savings Time. In 2007, it will begin three weeks earlier and last a couple weeks longer.

    Congress did vote to extend it. I, for one, am thrilled.

    Ooo, I'm thrilled too. But now we have something to look forward to in April. And I'm not just talkin' Daylight Savings Time.

    See my post above. Three weeks earlier, a couple of weeks later. I think the first or second Sunday in November.

    Thanks! I missed that tidbit.

    And Jewelsy, we can look forward to a monkey shaking his bum in April?

    Heck yeah. All the bum shakin' monkeys get together for a big ho'down in April. I think somewhere between the 21st and 23rd if I'm not mistaken.

    Unk I hope you got some good rest!

    I managed to get myself in nearly the same boat with my assistant off for the weekend AND my best employee off on vacation, so I was on my own wondering why in the heck it was so freakin busy at 7am. Normally on a Sunday, there's NOBODY in the store till 8am or later, but with the change everybody was out and about that hour earlier and it was painful to be the only one working and a big fat lineup at my counter.

    It may just be me and Pom in this corner, but I'm sad about the DST extension as well. I prefer to do my exercise and walks early in the morning and really enjoy being able to go out and about by 6:30 and get it over with. Not to mention that I don't need an alarm this time of year (atleast till nearly the end of it when my body totally adjusts to this time) cause I'm up all nice and early without the help of a buzzer in my ear.

    I'm far enough north that it will start getting dark about 4 here. I still prefer that to it not getting light until after 8 am. I'm not that thrilled with Congress extending daylight savings time starting in 2007. I wonder if this will work as well as the United States adopting the metric system did in the 1970s.
