Daylight SavING Time.   No "S".  One of my pet peeves.  :snowball:
And that's all I have to say about that,

DST is irrelevant if you actually get out of bed in the morning and work outside until at least dark. :D The cows don't care, nor do the trees.

POSTON, I heard that one a little be differently. Supposedly a Native American chief was asked about DST and said that only the government would cut a foot off the bottom of a blanket, sew it on the top and call it a longer blanket. :D

  Unfortunately the younger generations a taking to "work smart not hard" when it really is "work smart and hard" if you want to reach your goals.
Think like a farmer.

I agree sir. My reference is about using your head for something other than a hat rack. Working smart is more efficient. Working hard is a given for some, not so much for others. Which reminds me of another one.

To err is human, to forgive is divine.
“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.  (Mark Twain)

Common sense is not a gift, but a punishment…..because you have to deal with the ones that don't have it.
