I was cheated of an hour of sleep this weekend, as were you. We turned our clocks ahead an hour so that we may all "Spring Forward."

Which is your philosophy?

Sleep is when all the unsorted stuff comes flying out as from a dustbin upset in a high wind.
-William Golding

It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.
-John Steinbeck

As for me, I just want my hour back.

For those of you reading our blog outside of the United States, we just turned our clocks back in accordance with Daylight Savings Time. Many, but not all, countries observe this time change. For you trivia buffs, I just learned it was one of Benjamin Franklin's many ideas.
