The Farmers Son made a special trip to the pasture last night to announce to the cows and the milking goats that daylight savings time is approaching and we are going to set the clocks forward an hour, so would everyone take note and please come to the barn an hour earlier than they had been used to, for milking, even though it will still be dark and cold and sleep will be cut short. Needless to say, they heeded his request with  sheer indifference and quiet disdain. Whoever came up with this bright idea, apparently was not a dairy farmer! When creatures of habit, that derive comfort and security from no change in their daily routine, live by the sun, moon and stars, cycles of the seasons, and signs regarding the weather, are asked to change their schedule just a tad,  you might as well be asking the world to stop spinning on its axis for a short time. NO CAN DO!!! From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
