I wish the changes could be made gradual, so the sun would rise at 6
a.m. every day, and sunset might be as early as 3 p.m. or as late as 10
p.m., depending on the time of year. But there would be lots of

I own some land near Peace River. Scenically, Alberta is my favourite
province. Politically is another matter.
-> I'll have to contact my friends up in the Yukon Territory and see what time
-> they are observing now.
They'll be on Pacific Daylight Time, I think.
-> Regular gas in these parts (southeastern Louisiana) was down to $2.05 per

Here in Toronto, regular gas was about 85 cents per litre until
recently. Then there was a fire in a refinery, which "caused a
shortage". Some gas stations claimed to be out of gas, but there was
never any problem finding somewhere to fill up. But the price shot up
to about $1.06 per litre. Greed, I believe. And it actually had a
noticeable effect on traffic. There were fewer cars on the roads,
especially on weekends. Now, the refinery has been fixed and prices
have dropped a bit, but are still about a buck a litre. That's Canadian
bucks, of course. About 85 cents, U.S.. And there are about 3.8 litres
to a U.S. gallon. I guess you can do the comparison!
