Give Me Daylight - or Give Me Sleep

Usually I'm a newsaholic, but with working so much lately, that's one of the things I haven't been following as closely. (And, I'm pretty sure not a lot will have changed in the world of politics by the time I catch up anyway.) I did happen to hear, though, that we are delaying the time change, and I, for one, believe that is a great idea! Since I was in high school and learned the initial reasons behind the change, I've never understood why it still continues. There are always technical reasons given, but, simply, I like the extra daylight. It allows more time for all sorts of the generic-type house and life things we all do, and it just feels too dark too early otherwise (and I'm a major night owl even!) ... Of course, I won't complain about the extra hour of sleep it brings! ;)

Btw, I've noticed that Blogger has a new feature to help people keep up with comment threads. Many times we get some great threads going here - so that might end up being a neat feature to have.

I have always HATED standard time, and would keep it daylight savings time year round if given a choice. I'm glad the time change was delayed...and wish the time change would be delayed till, oh, Feb. 30 or so.

Politics is pretty static, tis true. Only Questions before the House are: (1) can another Democrat put a big enough dent into Hillary to matter; (2) is any other Repub. big enough to be an alternative to Rudy G, or will they all eat each other up ? And finally, (3) the question of what color Oval Office drapes Hillary might pick.

Have seen Blogger adding a lot of cool features lately, would love to adopt some, cept that (1) adding tags to 800-plus posts would take a loooooonnng time; and, (2) I'm not confident enough or patient enough in my HTML skills to trash all my additions and start out with a new template.

What is my thing with numbers ? Very Freudian.

I guess it's too late at this point for a "Wonder Candidate" to come forward? :P

I had some problems with something on Blogger, and the suggestion was that I change my template. I was like, "Are you KIDDING me?"
