LADYBUGS

Today, I saw a Ladybug or Ladybird for some of you. That is a sure sign that we can safely plant the garden and the flower beds.

The Ladybug I saw didn’t actually look like this drawing. This particular Ladybug was GENETICALLY MODIFIED by my son when he was five years old. I suppose he thought an ants head would enhance the looks of a Ladybug.

It was then and still remains my favorite Ladybug Art of all time!

By the way, does anyone really think Ladybugs look more like birds than bugs?

Saturday is NATIONAL FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. It’s one of my favorite holidays! Most comic book stores give away free books on the first Saturday in May.
In honor of the big day, my books will be free to download, Saturday and Sunday, May 3rd and May 4th. Don’t miss out this time, it might be the last time!

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

Daylight savings
In parts of the world you will be setting your clock forward one hour, at 2:00 AM on Sunday. It’s Daylight Savings Time. Actually the correct term is Daylight Saving; without the s. But, I don’t know anyone who says it that way. I grew up with the s. I’m keeping the s.

My readers are global and I know this comic strip doesn’t apply to all of you. So, I just conducted about 20 minutes of extensive research concerning Daylight Savings Time. This is what I learned.

Most of the United States and most of Canada will change their clocks on March 9. Most of Arizona, Hawaii and parts of Alaska refuse to participate.

Mexico breaks it up. Part of Mexico will change with the U.S. on March 9; other parts will change on April 6.

The United Kingdom and a lot of Europe will be changing their clocks on March 30.

Parts of the Southern Hemisphere will do everything backwards. For example, Australia and New Zealand will fall back on April 6.

There are a lot of places around the world that don’t participate in Daylight Savings.

Here’s where it gets really weird. At the South Pole they will change their clocks to fall back on April 6. Why would they bother? Isn’t it about to go dark for 24 hours a day at the South Pole? Aren’t the smartest researchers catching the last flights out, about now? Won’t there only be about a dozen people left to worry about changing the clocks? How do they even know what time it is in the first place? The South Pole is in all 24 time zones.

I decided to go ask the Wise Old Owl. Yes, Domino Park has a Wise Old Owl. He’s only in the sketch books so far, but here he is.
Wise Old Owl 2
I said, “Wise Old Owl, why do they set their clocks for Daylight Savings Time at the South Pole?”

This is what I learned. Apparently the research center at the South Pole is owned by Americans. So, of course they set their clocks to New Zealand time. They change their clocks for Daylight Savings because New Zealand does. Why New Zealand, you ask? New Zealand is where the airplanes will land when the researchers leave the South Pole. It helps the researchers adjust their internal clocks if they’re already on New Zealand time. I guess that’s rational. It just goes to show that sometimes the answers aren’t as funny as the questions.
