Today, March 13, is my birthday, my first one here in Brunswick County. My parents are coming to town and so is my kid brother, and spending time with my family is all I really want this year.
If there was one thing I could change about my birthday, it would be Daylight Saving Time. DST means getting up an hour earlier — bad news for night owls like me. Before 2007, we sprang forward after my birthday for DST. Three years ago, however, my birthday fell on the Sunday DST took effect, meaning my birthday only lasted 23 hours.
