Fall Back and Spring Ahead

Well, it’s that time of year again when we have to turn our clocks back for Daylight Savings Time. For those of us that are still working, it will now be light when we leave for work in the morning and pretty close to dark when we leave to go home at night.

I just started reading a book on Ben Franklin and found this list of some of the inventions he created one being the suggestion of saving on candles and use of oil lamps by using natural light. One of the things I like about Ben Franklin is the fact that he didn’t patent any of his inventions. He believed that “as we benefit from the inventions of others, we should be glad to share our own”.

It’s too bad that more people don’t think like Franklin when it comes to putting the good for all ahead of the good for one or a few.
