OK, maybe it's a pet peeve of mine, but it's NOT "military" time. It's simply a 24 hour clock. Because we have, you know, 24 hours in a day. We could just as well call it metric time since just about everywhere else in the world except us (by us, of course, I mean US) uses it for just about everything. And it goes without saying that the engineer in me loves the precision of not dealing with, "is that A.M. or P.M.?"


You're so right - NOT military time to the rest of the world (just like the rest of the world lives just fine with the metric system...). But how many U.S. universities have 24-hour clocks?

This week in local eating

  • 6.4.10: From our garden, we're eating chard, greens, radishes, strawberries, and heaps of herbs. At the farmer's market we're buying the usual: eggs and lots of goat cheese.
