I love DST. I've been out of sync since we went back to standard time last fall.

We don't go on to British summertime (our equivalent of DST) until the end of March but the days are getting longer. Yesterday was bright and sunny so it was light until nearly 6.30pm and that was in the north of England - roughly in a similar latitude to Labrador. Of course, being an island our climate is more temperate than Canada (usually!). We've had a short spell of warm -ish days over the last week - one day last week the temp was up in the high teens centigrade which was a bit weird for early March especialy so soon after the heavy snow fall a couple of weeks ago.

I don't think I'll be breaking out the summer dresses yet awhile though

Our weather here in New Orleans has been schizo. We switch from very cold and windy to 70°s and balmy.

Usually, once the 70°s get here and stay awhile, it's a warning that summer may be extremely hot.

The jury's out on that so far this year..

46 and sunny!

So far the snow has melted nice and slow, no flooding!

Good maple syrup weather, warm during the day and below freezing at night!

Have any of you watched the PBS series Cancer, Emperor of All Maladies? I have been watching this with such intensity, that I get a headache at the end of each part. I have been watching Part 3 and they made a statement about having conquered childhood leukemia, breast cancer and a few others with early detection, but now also know that obesity is also a group of people who are facing a greater possibility of developing cancer. I am so glad I lost all that extra weight I have been carrying around for years. Now to get down to the weight I should be as long as I don't go below 95 pounds. Unfortunately the charts for height don't go down to my height. I have to use children's charts.

STOP THAT LAUGHING. I CAN HEAR YOU!

I'm still getting a kick out of video of that mom in Baltimore slapping the heck out of her son after she found out he threw a rock at the cops.

I got just as much of a kick out of the son's reaction, he might have smacked his dad but he didn't dare smack his mom, lol!

I think that family will do just fine!

It's obvious who rules the roost! Good for Mom!

That Mom is my hero.

My Mom is my hero, too...she may be able to get us into the farmhouse she grew up in. Trying to find a place to live is getting hairy. Folks don't want a rental to stay empty for another month waiting for their tenants to show up.
