    true noon in Stockholm is at 11:54

    I guess nobody will notice, but I made yet another number typo. True noon in Stockholm is at 11:44.

    but dogs can read a clock

    It's a bummer that we can't teach our animals to read the clock. Before I retired, I used most of my working time programming. When I was programming, I usually lost time completely.

    But my dog used to come down into my office around 02:00 reminding me that it was time to go walkie and then go to bed. He never missed with more than a few minutes. But obviously that darn DST made him "miss" by an hour.

    I really need to watch for my typos better.

    programming, I usually lost time completely.

    I felt bad when I realized that I was telling my dogs to be quiet because
    they wete too early, when actually they weren't, the time was wrong.

    Maybe a requirement for new spectacles?
