March 9, 2014 - Spring That Clock Forward

Daylight Savings Time is here! For all you early risers and sunlight lovers, there is finally more time in the day to bask in the sun's glow and take that early evening walk without a flashlight. Sorry about your luck night owls and vampires. At 2:00 am our smart phones and cable boxes sprung forward a whole 60 minutes leaving most of us slightly confused when we woke up and looked at the time. 9:00am already?! Ohh daylight savings time, snooze.

For all you history buffs out there, you will surely remember that Daylight Savings was started during WWI to save coal used for heat and light by having people start their days closer to sunrise and go to bed earlier. It extended into winter during the 70's to save about 1% in the country?s electricity use. We're not sure if those numbers still apply, but we do know that most people are grouchier the first Monday after the clocks switch. Here's to another cup of coffee and napping at our desks.

Our Dog of the Week is Olive, a happy and smiley goldendoodle. Our Cat of the Week is Morgan, a true diva. Our Non-Profit of the Week is the Mental Wellness Center that provides education and programs to improve mental health. Chuck shares the astronomical importance of March, Rosie reviews George Clooney's latest film "The Monuments Men," David is awed by the surfers in Carpinteria, and Saturday was Nationale Proofreadeing Daye!

---- Edhat Stuff ----------------------------------

EDBIT: Santa Barbara is ranked #37 for the best auto insurance prices in California.

"The Reopening of The Franklin Trail" is a new film recently completed by Larry Nimmer for the City of Carpinteria.

EDBIT: Ed discovered it's National Proofreading Day and he's learning how to cellabraite celebrate.

POWDRELL: David marvels at the local surf talent in Carpinteria.

Monuments Men is a film based on the true story of a WWII platoon tasked with rescuing stolen art masterpieces. It raises the question of why we no longer seem to care about art as we did in the 1940s.

Astronomy: Chuck explains why March comes in like a Lion, but goes out like a Lamb.

NON-PROFIT OF THE WEEK: The Mental Wellness Center provides many vital programs that are improving the mental health of our clients, their families and our community

DOG OF THE WEEK: Meet Olive, an ugly duckling who has become a thing of beauty and good manners.

CAT OF THE WEEK: Meet Morgan, a very lazy and cuddly cat.
