One hour back, one giant leap forward for man's bid to turn up the heat in winter

'I find it hard to adjust to the changing of the clock. I love a walk in the evening, even if it’s only home from work. But it’s very hard to see in the dark'

There was a fable our teacher used to tell us and it was about a thirsty crow. The crow was parched and the only water available was from the bottom of a long jug, but the bird couldn't get at it because his beak was too short.

But crows are smart and the bird dropped little pebbles in to the jug, thereby bringing up the level of the water to a height were he could take a drink.

The moral of the story is there's a way around everything if you use the loaf.
