Right now the only 2 states that don’t observe Daylight Saving are Arizona, and Hawaii. The bill will also make it so all of Florida will be in one time zone, rather than having Northwest Florida be in central time. If passed, come winter while the rest of the east coat set their clocks back one hour, Florida will keep the time the same for more sunshine in the evening.
Watching the ball drop on New Years Eve would happen at 1 a.m local time, but it’s alright because in Florida it’s always Sunny!

The 1970 Isle of Wight Festival in England was “a little chaotic” in the words of Robby Krieger. It was the doors third to last concert, in the midst of Jim Morrisons trial for indecent exposure down in Miami.
It was a different type of show for The Doors, Jim wasn’t as animated as usual, the lighting was dark at Jim’s request since he wasn’t in the greatest of moods, and at the overweight with a beard point of his career. However, the show still sounded great, and the rest of the band thrived during the lenghtier instrumental jams.
The CD DVD set will be released on February 23rd.
