Hi. I am in MST, or actually now it's MDT, which means I'm in the mountain time zone, and this time of year, it's Daylight Savings time, instead of Standard time. My folks are in PDT, or Pacific Daylight Time, one hour earlier than I am, and my brother is on the other side of the country, in EDT, or Eastern Daylight Time. Then there are the rebels, like Arizona and Hawaii, which never switch from Standard to Daylight Savings and back. My husband's family is in Hawaii, and I can never remember if they are four or five hours earlier, because it changes from summer to winter!

What is GMT???
My birthday is in January and the weather is usually awful, which rules out riding or swimming. I like to go to a nice restaurant with my sweetheart, and have piles of wonderful new yarn and patterns to play in, all tucked up by the fire...
