Today we get an extra second. After we (Derek & I) get the 14 running I am going to use mine polishing brass.

I didn't learn about the extra second until just now.

If I had known about that I would have stayed in bed longer.

I guess the government is collecting all the unused seconds and distributing them to folks that don't need them.

Henry: Here's more on the leap second: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leap_second

When at precisely in Pacific time zone in San Diego County will that extra second occur? If at midnight, I will be sleeping.

Henry, sorry I didn't get back with you, I was working on a customers truck and he decided to watch and HELP me! I see Roger got you the info.

Norm, from reading the Wikipedia article, it occurred yesterday about 4pm San Diego time..

I'll sleep through the leap! :-)

I get it. Maybe, if we can gather up enough leap seconds, I'll accumulate enough time to finish up my "honey-do" list. :-)
