DAYLIGHT SAVINGS... DID YOU KNOW????

This is a two part blog.  The first part is to remind you that this weekend is time to turn your clocks back one hour.  Hooray... we can all use that extra hour of sleep. Also, this is a good time to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms.  Do this bi-annually when we turn the clocks is a great way to remember to get this done.

Now did you know that daylight savings in the fall can reduce heart attacks?  In Sweden researches have found that there are less heart attacks once the clocks are rolled back in the fall.  However, this increases in the spring when we move the clocks ahead.  I never knew this... did you?

TRIVIA QUESTION.. YES, I'M DOING ANOTHER ONE....

Do you know who came up with the idea for Daylight Savings?
