How you spent your extra hour

November 2, 2009

There have been several occasions I would love to add more hours to the day. Sometimes there's just not enough time in the day to get everything done. This weekend we got that extra time thanks to the end of daylight-saving time.


low Halloween turnout

We had quite a bit less trick or treaters this year. Where did they all go? Are people getting paranoid about taking their kids house to house? I hope not.
