Hurray for Daylight Savings!

BJ Bounds

Except for losing an hour of sleep on Sunday morning, the return of daylight savings is a time for celebration!

We finally can get home from work and actually accomplish something in the yard without a flashlight!

There are places like Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands that do not observe daylight savings time (DST).

They might be onto something.

Going to DST was designed to save energy because it would give us an extra hour of daylight for which we would not need to turn on our lights.  However, for those of us in the south, it means an extra hour of much needed air conditioning, which costs considerably more than lights, right?

I still like the extra hour, but I wonder…should we look into that again?  What do you think?

    Hi BJ, I just read a note that you composed regarding Calyx “Path”.

    We are a new start-up Mortgage Bank in Madison, WI. We are working on an acquisition of several small companies located at location around the Midwest region. At this point we have not selected a LOS system for our company and remote offices. The Path cloud solution is very intriguing and appears to fit with our short and long term technology solution.

    Would you please connect me with your Director of Product Development to discuss the possibilities? Happy to sign an NDA. I need to learn more about the product road-map before we spend funds to build out the office technology infrastructure. We would consider being a beta test site and provide detailed feedback. I have run similar product development test while at PricewaterhouseCoopers and feel a relationship could be advantageous to us both.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance on this.

    Warm Regards!
