Grandpa Knows Best

Just what you needed to kick off one of the worst days of the year: An earworm! Be sure to share it with everyone at work tomorrow.

I grew up listening to Grandpa Jones on the old TV series Hee Haw. He was a regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1978.

    Ha! I think Grandpa would have some mighty tall hunting to do since I think it was Benjamin Franklin that thought up DST!

      I had to look it up. In 1784 Ben wrote a sarcastic essay about how much money people in Paris could save if they rose at dawn to use the summer morning sunlight instead of candles, but it was William Willett in 1907 who first proposed changing the clocks. Unfortunately Willett died before the idea was implemented, which didn’t start happening until around 10 years later. Grandpa maybe could have hunted up Lyndon B. Johnson to have his say, though, because he’s the one who signed the Uniform Time Act into law in 1966.
