Spring Forward

In 1784 during a visit to Paris, Benjamin Franklin published a short essay titled: “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” that proposed to economize the use of candles by rising earlier to make use of the morning sunlight.  230 years later we Spring Forward each year as we enter Daylight Savings Time.  That will happen at 2:00 a.m. this Sunday morning, March 9.

We will have the coffee and doughnuts ready to help you wake up and for those of you who are coffee connoisseurs Harvest now has O’ Henry’s Coffee available on Sunday mornings.

So don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour early before you head to bed – you don’t want to be late for an incredible message from Ted Lowe of MarriedPeople on the power of words.

And if you struggle to wake up on DST Sunday – you can thank Benjamin Franklin!
