Ecuador's Government Departs Capital Amid Deepening Violence And Unrest. npr.org/2019/10/08/768216552/e

has been on my radar for several years as a possible place to retire as an expat should my finances not work out. I even made a trip there last year to check it out; although I'm staying here for now.

I just realized something: I'm retired. I DON'T HAVE TO TURN MY CLOCK BACK IF I DON"T WANT TO!

Or I can turn it back, but not relatively shift my personal schedule at all; which is what I am probably going to do so I don't miss appointments and stuff.

The Washington state Legislature passed a law to stay on daylight saving time permanently. No more changing our clocks! Yay!

But we still have to turn back our clocks Nov 3, because the US Congress has to approve it and is kinda busy right now. WTF? seattletimes.com/seattle-news/
