Spring Has Sprung! Set Clocks Forward! Cyclists Rejoice!


It's such a nice surprise to see green shoots and tiny flowers in our yard, this early in spring. The weather has been very mild these past few days, and I hope it sticks. Tonight before retiring, be sure to set your alarm clocks and watches forward one hour. It's also that time of year when the fire department recommends we all check the batteries in all of our smoke detectors. Take a second to press the TEST buttons tomorrow. It's also newsworthy to note that beginning in 2007, Daylight Savings Time will begin in early MARCH instead of April. This is GREAT NEWS for those of us who want to do outdoor sports after work, earlier in the year. It's tough to squeeze in a 1 hour bike ride, or a hike, run or walk when it's dark by the time you get home from work. Today I took a nice 32 mile ride and used my phone to snap a picture along the way. Burning 2000 calories couldn't be more enjoyable than when it's done riding a bike on beautiful country roads. -AT
