    This...

    Moving south works for winter. Days are longer in the summer in the north. "Snow birds" have it right in my opinion. And the closer I get to being that age, the more that resonates with me.

    I was wondering who those saps were working 8 hours a day.

    I experienced this on a summer trip a few years ago. We spent a couple of days in UP Michigan, far to the west in the Porcupine Mountains. That far north and west, but still in the Eastern time zone, the sun set on us well after midnight. You hear about that sort of thing in, like, Alaska or Norway or something, but I hadn't expected it in Michigan.

    At least one outlet reporting human remains have been found.

    Anytime I get to ruin a pun situation I am taking it. I freaking hate when those take off. I leave for a few hours hoping they ran their course.

    I'll keep that in mind. I'm a frequent contributor, as you know. I will do my best to resist temptation where your posts are concerned. Though I don't guarantee that my attempts will always be successful. I love puns.

    Please do as you wish. Opk and Bundabergdevil are Chief among the pun makers. I love those two dudes. I just hate puns. I also don't eat carbs. And I push old ladies down when they're trying to cross the street.

Free ourselves from the antiquated 9-5 mentality! Of course, in somewhere like Boston which is even further east in the time zone than Greenville, even with the switch back to EST, we have 9 hours of daylight (sunrise is 7:10am this year on the Winter Solstice, sunset is 4:15pm), so, squeezing in an 8 hour day without at least some commuting time in the dark is difficult. We need to advocate away from the 8 hour work day! When the days are shorter, so is the amount of time one spends at work. Or you work from home. Or you pick your poison. For those who hate going to work in the dark (me), you come in later and leave later. For those who hate going from work in the dark, you come in earlier and leave earlier. The only way to avoid commuting in the dark in the winter in Boston is to live within walking distance from work or have a less than 30 minute drive and work from 7:30 - 3:30.
    I'm working toward this - starting to think about, at least, partial retirement.

    Is the election a vote to send you north or some other kind of election?
