MC, I thought you might enjoy a piece of horse good news. In our rural areas, we have a very tight horsey community. When something happens to one horse, they all offer to help. Last night the roof on a large barn collapsed and there were 15 horses in the barn at the time. Fortunately, all horses, after being sedated, were rescued and found new homes. Only one horse received a minor injury.

With all the snow, roofs are coming crashing down. And barns are so vulnerable to this calamity. And we still have more snow coming.

It's just plain weird watching "60 Minutes" in bright sunlight. Thank you, Daylight Saving Time.

Right now I am totally out of sync with the world and this DST. It was 6:00 and daylight was shining in my window. Why are all these night programs on at 6 a.m.? What was Spike doing here at that hour? Have I had a stroke and didn't know it? Did someone call him because he is on my ICE? If I did have a stroke, he doesn't seem very concerned. He is just sitting there playing on my computer. Finally after about 20 minutes I mentioned to him how confused I felt. He was kind enough to remind me of DST. Thank goodness! No stroke.

I woke up too early this morning and then had a nap this afternoon. I may never sleep tonight.

It's a good thing that the clock on my computer is changed for me automatically. I hate clock changing on me. It screws me up mentally.

It is strange at first, isn't it? I like 'spring forward' much more than 'fall back'. Both take some getting used to, but I'm not on a job schedule anymore so that makes it a whole lot easier.

I keep looking at my window thinking there is daylight out there. Hardly at 11 p.m.
