    Livin, that's terrible. I would complain to your boss about them taking extra time and giving you such a hard time.

    I LOVE the extended daylight in the evenings. Frankly, I'd just as soon see them keep it all year round. When the sun sets at 4:45, as it does in the winter, it's just depressing. The extra daylight in the summer more than makes up for the hour of sleep I've lost, and there is no amount of extra sleep that could make up for just about every single element of winter.

    Of course, as long as I'm good about getting myself out of bed at a reasonable hour, and I was today, I'll be fine. Otherwise, this might as well be any other Sunday. I can never go to sleep on Sunday nights anyway. In fact, I think I'll be in better shape tonight.

    That whole concept of frat boys going on a pub crawl with their moms is just creepy.

    I concur. Can't imagine doing that with my son.

    Me neither. My son gets embarassed if I talk too loudly to him in the grocery store. I can't imagine him ever wanting to go pub crawling with me. Sorry you had such a lousy night livin.

    Thanks for the support fellow FORTers. I went to bed last night at 8:30 (which was 7:30 the night before). Have a blinding headache. If I can just get through to this week for spring break.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    I'm with you! I especially love when it is just a bit warmer because then the kiddos get to play outside longer. That means tired kids that are easy to shuffle off to bed in the evening!!

    I give DST a big I'd much rather have an hour of daylight 8PM - 9PM instead of 5AM - 6AM (the differences in sunsets and sunrises in my part of the world due to DST)

    I have been asked to serve on a panel that is trying to come up with ideas to continue dialog and education between the white and African-American communities here. This is something that got a start during black history month and was so successful that we're now trying to come up with ways it can continue and broaden to encompass more people and topics. The need for education for younger generations (not just kids, but also 20 somethings) that have not been exposed to the issues before, during and after Civil Rights was brought too light during the original discussions. This group will span many generations and create some conversation on viewpoints from both white and African American point of views. The original discussions were eye opening for those of both races.
    I'm excited as it was a lot of fun and I met some very interesting people that I'd like to get to know better and I learned a great deal.
