Spring 2016

First-Grapefruit-Shandy-Siting-Spring-Has-Sprung-2016The vernal equinox and spring may have arrived on Saturday, March 19 at 11:30 PM in my time zone but according to my book spring has officially sprung this afternoon with my first Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy sighting of the year. LOL! The Summer Shandy is a bit too sweet to me but the Grapefruit Shandy is perfect, especially good ice cold on a hot day and tastes much better from a bottle than a can. You must try it if you haven’t already.

I am always happy to see the days get longer but never been a fan changing the clocks twice a year. Springing ahead one hour is always harder than falling back one hour. Is there really a good reason to continue daylight savings time in a modern world that runs 24 hours a day? It just seems more practical to set the clocks back 30 minutes this fall and then leave time alone. But what do I know?
