I have been to plenty of places but I have never been in Cahoots. Apparently you can't go there alone, you have to be in Cahoots with someone. I've never been in Cognito either. I hear that no one recognizes you there. I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport, you have to be driven there. It's not hard to get there and I've made several trips. I'm planning one in the near future!

The rules of the contest were simple: beginning with the first day of daylight savings time, contestants would be required to save daylight. Whoever succeeded in saving the most daylight would win. Only pure daylight would be allowed—no dawn or twilight light, though light from cloudy days would be allowed. Moonlight was strictly forbidden. Light could be stored in any container. The contest received a huge, nationwide response. The paper's editor was interviewed by correspondents from CBS and NBC and was featured in papers throughout the country.

But, on the other hand……………..


Yesterday is history. Tomorrow's a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why they call it the PRESENT.
