Why Daylight Savings Time?
Did you remember to set your clocks forward an hour on this second Sunday of March, 2009? It is Daylight Savings Time ... Again! Why cannot we do away with this gruesome "Daylight Savings Time" thing?
Saturday brought partly cloudy skies with miniscule snowflakes that fell off and on during the Saturday afternoon hours. We only accumulated a tiny fraction of an inch of snow and the temperatures dropped to the 20's towards evening.
What is it doing in your neck of the woods. We hear that Northwest Oklahoma could use some moisture for their pastures, spring crops and to squelch the fire danger that has been ravages some areas in northwest Oklahoma.
Have you Twittered yet? The OkieLegacy has been playing around at Twitter.com and learning to "Twitter" and "Tweet." Lately it has been more observing and reading their little tutorial. BUT ... if you are interested in Twittering, stop by OkieLegacy Twitter page and get connected. We also have a NEW Facebook identity, using our email: email@example.com. Get connected.
There is a NEW "social browser" out there that this NW Okie is trying out. It is called "Flock." You can check it out at flock.com. It keeps all those networking sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Digg, MySpace, Photobucket, Picasa, TinyPic, eBlogger, Gmail, Yahoo! mail, etc... that you subscribe in one place, on a tab on the left column of the browser. You might want to try it out.
Before I head out of here, I leave you with this quote by Dag Hammarskjold (1905-1961) to think about - "The longest journey is the journey inward."

Comments: What is it doing in your neck of the woods. Here in NE Kansas, on the Oregon Trail, it is still winter some days and every-once-in-a-while it is spring. Yesterday (Mar 7) we had about 0.2 inches of rain with thunder & lightning. Was in Newton, KS, on Friday past and a man from Dodge City said that the only way to tell if there was wheat was where there was a pivot for irrigation. He said that coming from the west, it did not start to show green until he reached Hutchinson. Another man from Russell said that the last good rain they had had was in October 2008, only a two inch snow since. We here are more fortunate in that we entered winter with fairly good soil moisture. But we don't need all that large solid rain nor rotating winds! Someone here asked me the other day why do we call the person who advises on investments broker? Cheers! jeb ~James E Bradley 2009-03-08 21:34:39
