Song of the Week - 13

It is that time of the year here in California - daylight saving time. I am one of those people that does not like to lose an hour. It always seems like mandatory and enforced jetlag. I am still baffled as to why we continue with this practice and may at some time really study the pros and cons.

I've heard that DST is great for sporting events, retail and anything relying on afternoon sunlight. Hmm, more daylight for shopping just might require more frequent stops at the gas station. Well, maybe then the oil companies are reaping great rewards.

On the other hand, concerts under the stars, holiday firework displays and the like must begin later when the sun finally goes down. Most people I know love the extra daylight citing driving home from work with the sun has a positive psychological effect. I'm sure there are many good arguments but I really just want that hour back!

This morning I got up and it was an hour later than it should have been. I sat down with a cup of coffee, thinking about how hard it will be to get up for work tomorrow and this week's song jumped into my head. So, in "honor" of the loss of an hour, this week's song is about time, a word with with so many meanings.  This song is not about daylight saving, but it is about time.  Time is something we all have and may or may not make the best  use of and time is short, especially as you get older.  Hopefully, I can make the most of this day, less one hour.

The Chambers Brothers, The Time Has Come Today.  Enjoy.
