"Timely" Tips From Bart Maverick :)

Howdy Folks!

Usually in the wintertime, I end up driving to and from work with a white-knuckled grip on the Bartistamobile's steering wheel as the freeways freeze up.

Not so this year! Snow has mostly been a no-show here. And, I've had few weather worries on my daily commute. So, unless Mother Nature socks us with a belated blizzard, it looks like we're home free this year. The crocuses, hyacinths, and other springtime dazzlers are well on their way to blooming.

Another sign of the approaching spring is the adjustment to Daylight Saving Time. It's time for the clocks to spring forward, as our buddy Bart Maverick reminds us below:

Incidentally, losing an hour's sleep could do more than just induce yawns on Sunday, March 11. Studies have shown that the time change can actually affect a person for two or three days! So, be sure to get plenty of rest and eat right.

Getting extra sunshine can help re-set one's inner clock. Fresh air and exercise may also improve alertness. So, why not catch some rays and work out with a friend.

Finally, it may be wise to postpone difficult or risky tasks until after one has recovered from the time change.

These "timely" tips are presented as a public service by Bart Maverick and "TDS". ;-)
