Time Change ~ Sunshine ~ Geese ~ Turkeys ~ Deer ~ Picture of the Day ~ Liz Taylor ~ Egg Roll In A Bowl ~ LASD Mobil Shooting Range Fire

 

Good 26º dark cloudy morning. 
 
 
Time change is always something to get used to. I really don't like getting up in the dark! I do, however, like the longer light evenings!
 
 
Yesterday the sun and blue sky was awesome!
 
 
We had a heat wave and warmed to 56º! Then the clouds came back in. :0(
 
A couple of the geese were sitting out on the grass...
 
The turkeys were munching whatever it is they munch on the grass...
 
And a doe and her fawn were out too, enjoying the nice weather...


 
Picture of the Day.....
 
 
 
Interesting about Liz Taylor.......
 

Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, DBE (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011) was a British-American actress, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She began as a child actress in the early 1940s, and was one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s. She continued her career successfully into the 1960s, and remained a well known public figure for the rest of her life. The American Film Institute named her the seventh-greatest female screen legend in 1999.
Born in London to wealthy, socially prominent American parents, Taylor moved with her family to Los Angeles in 1939, and she soon was given a film contract by Universal Pictures. Her screen debut was in a minor role in There's One Born Every Minute (1942), but Universal terminated her contract after a year. Taylor was then signed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and had her breakthrough role in National Velvet (1944), becoming one of the studio's most popular teenaged stars.
Elizabeth Taylor was awarded a record-setting contract of $1 million to play the title role in the historical epic Cleopatra (1963). Taylor became very ill during the early filming and was rushed to hospital, where a tracheotomy had to be performed to save her life. The resulting scar can be seen in some shots.

Taylor's acting career began to decline in the late 1960s, although she continued starring in films until the mid-1970s, after which she focused on supporting the career of her sixth husband, Senator John Warner. In the 1980s, she acted in her first substantial stage roles and in several television films and series, and became the first celebrity to launch a perfume brand. Taylor was also one of the first celebrities to take part in HIV/AIDS activism. She co-founded the American Foundation for AIDS Research in 1985, and the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation in 1991. From the early 1990s until her death, she dedicated her time to philanthropy, for which she received several accolades, including the Presidential Citizens Medal.
                                                                            
Throughout her career, Taylor's personal life was the subject of constant media attention. She was married eight times to seven men, endured several serious illnesses, and led a jet set lifestyle, including assembling one of the most expensive private collections of jewelry in the world. After many years of ill health, Taylor died from congestive heart failure in 2011, at the age of 79.

L.A. County firefighters were called out to the 13900 block of Fiji Way in Marina Del Rey after flames began shooting from a semitrailer that the Sheriff's Office says is a "mobile shooting range."

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Daylight Savings Time Sunday! Ciao.

Daylight Saving Time is currently put to use on the second Sunday in March in the USA.  The practice is designed to give people an extra hour of sunlight in the evening hours.  This is done by setting the clock ahead one hour at a predetermined date each year.
HISTORY
George Vernon Hudson from New Zealand proposed the modern version of daylight saving in 1895.  Germany and Austria-Hungary were the first countries to use it starting on 30 April 1916.
The energy crisis on the 1970s accelerated the growth of Daylight Saving Time.  It has been argued that more natural light in the evening hours uses less electricity due to less artificial lighting requirements.  Many retail shops and tourist attractions also enjoy more business.
