Tis the Season .......

A Christmas song, again by Trans-Siberia Orchestra,
that I love and listen to in the car, on the puter and out loud from the stereo.

Wizards in Winter

Wizards in Winter by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

---a rocking, foot stomping winter sound extravaganza---
If you have ever enjoyed Portland's March 4th Marching Band
This would be a perfect song for them to preform.
OR to see Derek Huff (Hough?) choreograph and dance this one on Dancing with the Stars.

I keep playing this song over and over - I can't get enough.
Much to my hubby's groans and moans of "not again, please".
With that said,  I just turn up the volume.

It's Time.....

This weekend is our annual Fall Back and gain an hour.
What will you do with the extra hour on your hands?

Daylight Saving Time was instituted in the United States during World War I in order to save energy for war production by taking advantage of the later hours of daylight between April and October. During World War II the federal government again required the states to observe the time change. Between the wars and after World War II  states and communities chose whether or not to observe Daylight Saving Time. In 1966, Congress passed the Uniform Time Act, which standardized the length of Daylight Saving Time.

Daylight Saving Time is four weeks longer since 2007 due to the passage of the Energy Policy Act in 2005. The Act extended Daylight Saving Time by four weeks from the second Sunday of March to the first Sunday of November, with the hope that it would save 10,000 barrels of oil each day through reduced use of power by businesses during daylight hours. Unfortunately, it is exceedingly difficult to determine energy savings from Daylight Saving Time and based on a variety of factors, it is possible that little or no energy is saved by Daylight Saving Time.
