Friday News roundup for November 1,2013
Are you prepared to turn back your clocks this weekend? That’s right everyone don’t forget that daylight savings time ends officially on Sunday November 3rd at 2 am.
Just to get you ready for the time savings here are a few fun facts
Benjamin Franklin didn’t create the Daylight savings time although he did suggest rising earlier to make use of earlier morning sunlight in an anonymously written, humorous essay titled “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light”.
The phrase “Spring forward, Fall back” helps people remember how Daylight Saving Time affects their clocks.
Daylight time isn’t used everywhere in the world. Saskatchewan and some parts of B.C. don’t use it, for example, nor do Arizona and Hawaii in the U.S.
Do you know the primary reason that 02:00 in the morning was set as that changeover time for Daylight savings time?
Answer: Because it was thought that there would be less disruption and most people would make the change before daybreak. The good news for anyone with computers is that the sytems make the adjustment without humans having to do anything!
How was everyone’s Halloween? It’s amazing how much money we spend on these special days and the amount of time that kids put into their costumes ( is it only kids?) it staggers the mind! Of course Halloween was celebrated on the wall with some great images and humor…
Take for example Dave Cottrell ( I think this makes him at least a few years younger lol)
Diane was busy making spooky food for a school ( witches and broomsticks)
Jim found out the real history behind Google’s doodle “The Halloween witch“
and of course
Christina is dancing with the ghost busters lol

Some great things happening on the forum of Adlandpro for this Friday news roundup
Did you know that you can made fantastic hamburgers when you add some ground pumpkin seeds? This is just one of the things I learned about pumpkin seed from David Rowland on Pumpkin Seeds and their health benefits.
Luis Miguel has some fantastic information for anyone who is an art enthusiast. Take for example Francisco De Goya(Goya for short) the Spanish painter/draftsman and printmaker. This man was incredible in how he viewed the world and how that reality changed because of the horrors of war. You really need to take the time to not only read but take in the paintings that Miguel has found and shared with his readers.
There are many more forums to explore on Adlandpro, maybe take the time to visit one or two a day and learn about some great topics and get to know some great members on Adlandpro social community.

Lesson from the Hedgehogs – Teamwork
It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.
The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.
After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.
Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.
Lesson learned? The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities. source
