This week is going to be incredibly busy for me. Today is the only day without a meeting or appointment after work. I guess I’m just getting to be a really popular guy! I’m going to try to keep on blogging every day, but I can’t make any promises.

Today I had an idea for how to make the “spring forward” with Daylight Saving Time more bearable: Instead of springing forward at 2 A.M. on Sunday morning, let’s spring forward at 4 P.M. on Monday, thereby bringing 5 P.M. early!

Bananas are a fantastic fruit. I love bananas, but they have a built-in problem. When you eat a banana, you’re left with the peel, which sits in your garbage can and quickly becomes… Pungent. No, pungent isn’t the right word. Odoriferous. Malodorous. Stinky. And the longer they sit, the worse they smell. It’s a problem, bananas. See a specialist.

    ‘Hello, my name is Bingo, I like to climb on things. Can I have a banana? Eek Eek’

    “I got an F. When I told my mom about it, she said, ‘I told you, never trust a monkey!’

    “The end.”

  3. I was the one who said banana, Tom. I’m surprised you don’t remember, since you’re the one who shot that.

  4. I will, however, freely take credit for the aforementioned “banana” incident. Just sayin’.

  5. Ubiquitous Atomic Time

    Why don’t all clocks and watches automatically set their time based on the atomic clock? Besides our iPhones and computers, Morah and I have only a single clock in the house that automatically sets itself to the atomic clock. We…
