Daylight Savings Time

"When told the reason for daylight saving time, the old Indian said ... ‘Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket.’"
~ From a Lakota website (via Facebook)

Ah, but no one had to explain to the "I'm not a morning person" person why one might want to make the day last LATER, not necessarily LONGER.

Here in Saskatchewan, we don't abide by such silliness. The cows want to be milked when the cows want to be milked, and if someone wants more time to golf in the summer, I hear that the golf courses are usually pretty clear at 6:00 am.
