    Before The Break Of Dawn...

    I was born early on a snowy monday morning on December 14, 1959. Always an early riser when I was 11 I used to wake at 4:30 am eat breakfast with my dad before he headed to work at the bakery and I went out to deliver my newspapers. There is hardly a soumd as I pedal my bike down...

    An Early Bird.

    I am always up at 6am on a workday. Normally in work by 7:30. Weekends I'm up no later than 8am. I dont like tea in bed, once I'm up that's it.

    What's a Sleep In?

    What's a sleep in? For me any time after 0630. My average wake up time is around 0530 in the morning. If I've got a bit on the mind with work and other stuff, it's not uncommon for me to wake around 0400 and start work (I own my own business). I'm definitely one of those people...

    Hours Into The Day

    This morning as I sat here with my 3rd cup of coffee, I wondered how many others were sitting all alone, the rest of the household sound asleep in their beds. That inspired me to see if there was actually a group of people like me searching out for some early morning...

    But I Must Be In Bed By 9pm

    Somehow my sleep pattern got latched up to a 9pm start. If I don't start sleeping by this time, my next moment only comes two hours later. Then, I make a break around 2:15 am. Perhaps I wake up shortly again at 4am, and then I keep sleeping until 6am.  I'm happy with these...
