Today is 1st February 2018 and the time is precisely 11.07 am GMT, despite the fact it will show this post as being submitted at the somewhat ungodly hour of approximately 2am. It may well be approximately 2am in the USA but it certainly isn't here. Am I missing something? With new advances being made in technology isn't it time someone invented an electronic gadget that automatically shows the correct time and date for your locality? When Steve and I head off to do some Christmas shopping in Bruge last year, my mobile did me the service of showing both the local time for Bruge and the UK - so how come my blog seems to be permanently on US time?
Anyone who follows this blog will know of my affinity to Doctor Who. Is the fact my blog is permenently on US time - even though it actually shows UK time and date to me - really just an indicator that Time Travel is not so much science fiction as science fact? Okay so maybe one cannot walk from one era to another, but if I am writing this on a beautiful pre-spring morning in the UK with crocuses on the grass outside and sun shining through the latticed windows, how come the blog date will show me as writing it in the dead of night? Hmm - puzzles indeed. I never was much good at physics!
