Is there time?

Did you know that prior to trains and televisions, hours weren't always an hour long? Romans divided daylight time into 12 hours. Always. So in the summer when the sun shines longer, hours were over 60 minutes long. And in the winter, they were shorter.
Time, it seems, is relative.

Remember to put your clocks forward one hour (60 minutes) this weekend!
