Time ... Tick Tock ...

Time affects each of us differently in so far as how we age, process its movements, are punctual, manipulate time in the grids, understand space-time, rips in time, time loops, linear vs non-linear time, and understand that it will soon cease to exist. Carpe diem. Reality is just One Day

Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time was first mentioned by Benjamin Franklin in a letter to the editors of the Journal of Paris. Ben also designed the first US coin. On one side he placed the word Fugio beside a sundial. Fugio in Latin means I Fly, and in conjunction with the sundial it implies "Time Flies" - Tempus Fugit. With the sun above the sundial, the effect of the design is rather artistic and coveys one of Franklin's favorite aphorisms. Carpe Diem "Seize the Day"

I found the watch I wanted on Ebay as it reached its final seconds of
bidding and got it for $20 with free shipping. It's a perfect fit and I love it.

It's all about time and timing.

Carpe Diem!


Civil rights in the US

At a time when we should be united as a nation to face terrorist threats we find ... memories and current civil revolution which will grow now that the weather is not a priority.

50th anniversary of the historic Civil Rights march in Selma, Alabama, on March 7, 1965, known as "Bloody Sunday."   NBC - March 7, 2015
When thousands gather this weekend in Selma, Alabama, to mark the 50th anniversary of "Bloody Sunday," some will likely conclude that the town that changed America has not seemed to make much progress of its own. The majority of registered voters in Selma are now black - along with most of the city, whites having fled in the decades since their African-American neighbors gained access to the ballot box. More than half the businesses in Selma are black-owned. But Selma is a poor city in one of the poorest states in the country. The typical resident earns about half the state's median income of $43,000, and over 40 percent of its citizens live below the poverty line, more than twice the state average. According to the most recent data, 10 percent of Selma residents are unemployed - one of the highest rates in Alabama - compared to six percent statewide.
