    Default Time Change Sunday, April 6

    The first Sunday in April is the day that the US moves its clocks one hour ahead and goes back on EST, meaning that people there will again be on the same time as the DR.

    As far as I am concerned, this is a good day for those of us living here as we can once again watch the good evening programs without missing out on sleep.

    Note: The date was corrected with the help of Musicqueen, who took time out of partying to help me out.

    Red face Ken...sorry to inform you...

    [FONT=century gothic]...that the time change is for 2:00 a.m. on <b><i>Sunday, April 6th!!!</b></i>

    The reason I know this is because <b><i> APRIL 4th</b></i> is <b>MY BIRTHDAY</b>...

    It falls on a Friday, I will start the celebrations on Wednesday, April 2nd, and maybe finish by midnight on the 6th!!!

    If anybody is close to my playground on those dates, you're welcome to come join me!!!

    But be forewarned...we party 'till we drop!!!

    You are right, MQ, I really goofed that. Can't even use fact I am living in the DR as an excuse.

    People cried too much about that, it was really crazy but I actually liked it, the only thing was that the nights were pretty damn long. They used to do that back in the 80s and then Balaguer went back in power and took it off so that his henchmen aka businessmen could loot and plunder like there was no tomorrow.........but enuff of that, enjoy your b-day MQ and while you're in Miami having fun, I gotta be stuck at the office here in Virginia but its all good. Enjoy

    Default Thank you guys...

    for the well wishes...

    Now, isn't anyone going to be around this part of the world for those days?

    Theresa, my friend...how about it?

    Maybe Negro Lindo can come down also, and I know for a fact that arenas809 is in Miami...so how about it?

    Ooops, sorry...didn't mean to hijack the thread...!

    Well, it is obvious that facts and figures related to the system of time keeping aren't my forte.

    But then, my only interest in the time change is the fact the TV programs I'm interested in will begin at 8 or 9pm instead of 9 or 10pm, at least until October 26.
