Years ago we were on a circle at Harry S Truman State Park in Missouri. Someone left all four of his corner floodlights on all night. Terribly rude!

That's why you should carry a can of black spray paint. :

I meant to say, "They're not only saving daylight, they're making more."

Daylight savings time: The equivalent of cutting 5 inches off the bottom of your blanket, sewing that to the top of your blanket, and then proclaiming how you now have a longer blanket.

It is a dirty, hot, nasty, painful job, and only worth the effort a year or two later after you forgot about the cramps and suffering.

Yep, fair enough, but I think he could have done with a few less. His neighbor had an area roped of with construction type lights, probably about 15 or so, at least 60 watts each, but they were off when I got up. Still all in all it was a great trip and we were not at work! Not sure i could go backpacking that trail alone myself, like to do it though,,,

I know of a truck that you can demonstrate on at the Goshen rally, wheels only will be fine unless you really feel like doing the deck as well

Jellystone in Madison, FL got a couple of new chainsaw carvings. This is a friend's dad, James Denkins. He's apparently a world renown chainsaw carver. I had no idea!

Sure people say we get "longer days" but it's really just that we naturally get more sunlight throughout the day in the summer months compared to the winter months.

I've always been under the impression that changing the clocks is all about shifting the times that most people are active so they can enjoy the sunlight more.

Around here if we didn't shift our clocks, we'd have the sun coming up at 4 AM in June and setting just after 7 PM. For a normal 9-5 worker that's a whole lot of daylight I'd miss out on in the morning and I wouldn't get much after work.

And the further north you go, the worse it gets.

Maybe their satellite connection only goes to one TV? I've seen that before where the signal only goes to the "main" TV and the bedroom TVs still have to rely on the antenna signal.

No deal. No way. No how.

When doing the 'toons, the high-speed polisher snagged a dock light wire and wrapped it up in the wheel. That thing whipped me about 6 times across the ahem..."sensitive" parts of my chest before I could drop it.

Left welts for days.

The Tesla has no front license plate so Iím assuming theyíre from the states.
Where was the photo taken?
It canít be excessively warm.....the lady has a fair jacket on, and the foliage on some of the trees is lacking.

FYI: My state (Illinois) requires front license plates. So do many others (but not all).
