Ultimate daylight saving time: bears have the right idea about maximising their sunlight time by hibernating through the dark winter months and staying awake for the sunshine! The rest of us are being duped…
My alarm clock has marked the passage of time for me but its time is finally up. Alarm bells have been ringing and alerting me of its imminent demise with limp hands, no glow and yes – a dead alarm feature. Farewell, my ex-trusty alarm clock. May you snooze in peace…
