Be Prepared

Well it’s that time of year again – time to fall back, as the actress said to the archbishop. Yes this Sunday November 6th we officially return to Standard Time here in North America.  The UK,  Europe, and most of the Middle East did it on October 30, except the West Bank and Gaza insisted on jumping the gun on the 29th;  in the Southern Hemisphere Australia changed to DST on the October 3 but New Zealand beat them by four days springing forward on September 29. Got that?  So on Saturday if it’s 0900 DST here in Charlottetown, in London  it will be 1200.  On Sunday when it’s 0900 AST here on PEI it will be 1200 1100 1230 – damned if I know!  And let’s not even ask about the difference between Sydney, Nova Scotia and Sydney, New South Wales!

In an effort to be of assistance to my faithful follower I offer this little aide-memoire to get you through some of the trauma.



On this day in 1847: Sir James Young Simpson, a British physician, discovers the anaesthetic properties of chloroform.
