It fades the cows too!

You gotta love those crazy Queensland politicians! Peter Beattie cracked me up this week with his announcement that Qld will not be introducing daylight saving, because it would increase the risk of skin cancer.

Say what?

That's the one downfall of Qld. Don't you just love daylight saving? It makes such sense to have it

You should phone him and explain that it's not like you actually ADD an hour of daylight.. you know, it's already there actually, but just called, for example, 4pm instead of 5pm. I don't think he gets it...

Good grief, is this for real? Perhaps George Bush sent him links to the Google where this idea was on the internets?
Although, I tell ya, at 8pm last night when I'm usually thinking about bed it was much harder with sunlight streaming in! And I'm back to waking up in the dark. Grrr, just when I'm trying so hard to be a morning person!

Apparently we are now destined to become a nation full of confused cows, faded curtians and walking melanoma's!
