On this day at mid-day, or 1pm in places that use this stupid pointless clock fiddling mumbo-jumbo like the British government is so keen on, it will be the exact middle of the calendar year. Happy exact middle of the calendar year everyone!
Speeking of daylight saving time though, is there anyone out there on bloggo land who can come up with a good reason why we change the clocks in summer? The reason everyone seems to quote is that it gives farmers longer to tend their crop in summer, but that strikes me as the sort of thing that would result in a points deduction on QI because surely a farmer decides his own hours and doesn’t not go out to his fields just because his watch doesn’t read 9am yet.
And now, the news:
Prince Charles on the lookout for Wildwood’s Squirrels
Bigfoot surfaces in rural North Carolina
Police hunt leprechaun
Maggots ground plane
Swearing parrot f***s off (that’s flies off)
Bin busker employs guard dog
I don’t think that’s ‘bin’ done before.
