Spring Forward

Daylight Saving Time is upon some of us again. Had to set the clocks ahead one hour since it is time to “spring forward.”

Daylight Saving Time used to begin in April and end in October. Now it begins in March and ends in November. Here in the USA, two states don’t recognize this biannual time change. There are a few countries which don’t participate, either.

John Oliver has a short little piece about Daylight Saving Time which is pretty good.

Friday Vernal Equinox…2015!!!

 

The Vernal Equinox is today…the first day of Spring! It officially enters my little corner of the world at 3:45 p.m. (PDT), and I can already feel the sense of rebirth and renewal that always occurs this time of the year…I entered this world during this season under the indomitable sign of Aries, so I shout out: “Here I am – like it or not!”
¬†Another fantastic celestial event occurred last night…a beautiful total eclipse of the sun. It was best seen in the Northern Atlantic, stretching all the way to the North Pole. From BBC News:

“Millions of people in the UK and northern Europe have glimpsed the best solar eclipse in years. A great swathe of the Earth’s surface was plunged into darkness as the Moon came between us and the Sun. From an aeroplane above the Faroe Islands, a BBC camera crew captured startling footage of the event reaching totality at 09:41 GMT. The deep shadow formed first in the North Atlantic and then swept up into the Arctic, ending at the North Pole…In all parts of the UK, the eclipse reached at least 83%, with the darkness peaking at about 09:35 GMT. The precise timing and degree of the eclipse varied with location. For the Shetland Islands, the eclipse was at its height at 09:43 GMT and was very near total, with 97% of the Sun’s disc obscured by the Moon. For those caught under cloudy skies, the internet was a good option to see the eclipse. Scientific agencies had planes and even satellites gathering video to relay on the web and on television. In the UK, the weather turned out to be slightly better than anticipated, with clouds breaking in many places at just the right time. London and the South East, on the other hand, just saw their grey day get slightly gloomier.”

My eyes look to the skies this weekend…my gaze shall return to the troubles of this world on Monday. Even goddesses need their rest, after all! For now, enjoy this time-lapse video of the eclipse, from NRK. The corona is magnificent!
I just heard of the untimely death of A.J. Pero, longtime drummer for the band Twisted Sister. From BBC News:
AJ Pero, the drummer with US heavy metal band Twisted Sister, has died aged 55. The group announced his death on their website, but did not give the cause of death. Pero first joined Twisted Sister in 1982 and left in 1986, but he later reunited with the band in 2001 and continued to perform with them. The band is best known for their 1984 hits, We’re Not Gonna Take It and I Wanna Rock.”
R.I.P., A.J. – rock on.
