Enjoy Your 25 Hour Day

This blog is called 25 Hour Day for a reason. Several of us will get to experience a 25 hour day today as we adjust our clocks for the end of daylight saving time (DST). Feels good doesn't it? Wouldn't it be nice if you could have that good feeling every day?

Well you can't, unless you adopt my modest proposal. In the meantime, enjoy your 25 hour day and enjoy your 5% reduced risk of a heart attack.
