Topic

1      Change your clock tonight:  Sunday, March 11th 2am roll clocks forward by one hour. “Spring forward”

2      Where do these sayings come from: sleep tight & wet your whistle

In Shakespeare’s time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened, making    the bed firmer to sleep on.

Hence the phrase…’Goodnight , sleep  tight’

Many years ago in   England , pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups When they needed a refill , they used the whistle to get some service.  ‘Wet your whistle’ is the phrase inspired by this practice.

3      Const. Janice Carmena pulled over a Buick Century when she saw the driver was going 50 kilometers an hour in a school zone, where the limit is 30 kilometers an hour.

The police officer was shocked when she saw the 1911 birth date on the mans  driver’s license, which was good for another five years.

The 100-year-oldBritish Columbiadriver had a flawless driving record, so the traffic officer just gave him a warning ticket.
