Chat Time/Daylight Savings Time/European Summer Time
« on: March 05, 2018, 06:29:53 am »
Next Sunday, 11 March 2018, the US (and possibly also Canada?  Not sure) goes on daylight savings time.  Europe doesn't go to summer time until Sunday, 25 March 2018.  Thus, for the 11 March and 18 March chats, chat will start at approximately 11 p.m. GMT.

(revanne and I just discussed this in the Shoutbox, and I figured it would be helpful to put the info somewhere easier to find once those particular Shoutbox messages scroll out of view.)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Yep, most of Canada goes on Daylight Savings Time next Sunday.

Thanks, Jerusha!  (It's hard sometimes to keep up with who does what in which country when.  ;D )

I struggle in a country with one time zone so am seriously impressed how you all keep up.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

For me, a lot of it is practice.

For as long as I can remember, I've lived in Eastern but had family in other time zones (bio-father lived in Arizona and later New Mexico, both Mountain time, paternal grandmother also lived in New Mexico until she passed, paternal aunt lives in California [Pacific time zone] and has for longer than I've been alive), so having had to calculate, "Wait, what time is it?" before I called my aunt since I was a wee little DesertRosebud does mean I've had a good bit of practice.  ;)

When DD2 lived for a time in South Africa that really threw me because it was only an hour different. My head said " but she's 10 hours away" but of course that was north to south not east -west.
