DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
I tried to say nothing. Really I did. But when I'm proved right, it's such a red letter day because it happens so seldom. So I just had to share it with my friends here.
But first a cute video to share about it. This is how I feel with Sunday approaching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iw6aIWVXZ2g
Okay, had a chuckle imagining me doing this? Don't laugh, it might actually be that bad! LOL Now, drum roll please. DAYLIGHT SAVING DOESN'T SAVE ENERGY!! I've been saying all along that all the studies were done decades ago and didn't reflect our current life styles. Indiana's idiot governor forcing daylight saving down our throat gave scientists the ideal way to actually test it. According to a study done by the University of California, Indiana's shift caused electricity costs to rise $8.6 MILLION per year and increased social costs of pollution emissions an extra $5.3 million.
Of course it's poor comfort at the moment when the change is staring me in the face come Sunday. LOL
Now onto an even more fun subject. I'm already having so much fun waiting for my new grandbaby to come. Today was an interesting day because Donna found a test called Intelligender that is supposed to predict the baby's sex and has a 90% accuracy rate (supposedly) so I got it for her. She took it this morning and it said GIRL! But even as I was dreaming of pink frilly dresses and bows in the hair, Donna and I did some more research and ran across a couple of pregnancy forums where MANY women had tried the test and it had not been accurate. So our bubble was burst and we don't know what we're getting. Have any of you tried it or any of the other home gender tests? There's one that tests DNA with pricking your finger.
I suppose we just have to resign ourselves to being patient. LOL
