Daylight Savings Time

One of the original “smartest guys in the room” came up with this idea for the new United States back in 1784.  Yep, that’d be Ben Franklin. Ben was known to be tight with a dollar.  He persuasively convinced others to go along with his idea reasoning, that if we woke up with the sunrise and went to bed with the sunset Americans would save money on …..candle usage. All States aren’t required to observe daylight savings time.   Hawaii doesn’t, but nobody cares because Hawaii is just cool. Then there’s Arizona where daylight is way too long and hot. Besides that, candles melt really fast in Arizona.I’m assuming Ben never went to Arizona or whatever it was called back then. Texas clocks spring forward again this Sunday, March 10.  Have some fun, save a few candles and enjoy our outdoors.
