I found this online trying to figure-out what time it was in Manila when I was in Denver. If it is 9:00 AM in Denver it is 11:00 PM in Manila. There are 10 time zones between here and there. Denver is not listed on this chart, but the Mountain Time zone is halfway between the time in Chicago and the time in Los Angeles. I figured that this chart could be of some use to us in our work here together.

Hi Mark:

You made me remember something. In 2005 #2 son and I were in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. For us, its 13 hours difference with Malaysia being ahead of Eastern standard Time. On this particular day it was my Dad's b-day. They are usually in the eastern time zone but on this particular day, they were in Victoria B.C. in the pacific time zone. Here we were, Monday morning, 10 am in K.L. yapping away to Dad wishing him the best of birthdays, talking to yesterday at 6 pm Sunday in Victoria, at cocktail hour! Talk about time warp long distance!

Jim

Its half an hour later in Newfoundland Mark. grin

Mark, in Canada, most time zones are even, like yours, with the exception of Newfoundland and Labrador. Virtually any commercial for a show that is shown nationally will have a "half an hour later in Newfoundland" addition to it. We find it very amusing usually for some reason. Eh Mike?

When I was in the Marine Corps. I flew from japan to Travis Air Force base just outside of San Francisco.On a C-5 transport plane nonstop 10 hr flight. When we got off the plane in Travis I realized we hadn't left japan according to the date and time.
It was the same day only earlier in the mourning.
