So soon. Last Sunday, Daylight Savings Time kicked in. Compared to previous centuries, we get by with about two hours' less sleep per night. We're so near the edge, turning the clock forward in the spring seems to be dangerous for some of us.

A research report in the New England Journal of Medicine says the number of heart attacks goes up on the three work days following the spring time change. Especially for women. And it drops below average on the one day following turning the clock back in the fall. Especially for men. The effects of both transitions are more pronounced for people under 65. Is that because they're more sleep deprived, on average?

She's a pianist who has a diploma in Jazz and Pop music, and is classically trained too. She's professional singer-songwriter Ariane Vaillancourt, and she is to perform her award-winning music in Newport's wood-panelled Community Hall at 1452 Route 212 in Island Brook on Saturday, March 14 at 8 p.m.

She has been teaching song at the École nationale de la chanson de Granby since 2008. In 2014, she was awarded three prizes at the Festival en chanson de Petite-Rivière. They are the Prix du public compositeur Municipalité de Petite-Vallée, the Prix compositeur parolier/Chanson canon Sirius XM with François Roy, and the Prix du plus bel air Cogeco.

"The evening will feature a bilingual repertoire, sung with her characteristic warmth and charm, in an intimate setting with family, friends, and neighbours," said the announcement from Francine Rouleau of Newport's Loisirs 4 Horizons. All are welcome. Admission: $10. Info: See Facebook.com/loisirs4horizons, or call 819-875-3895.

They were trained by Marie-Noëlle Fontaine, the Viactive counsellor and kinesiologist who works for Sercovie, a non-profit group in Sherbrooke. Shipman is from Lawrence. "I hope we get a big turnout," she said. And she suggested you come and try it, no matter what your speed. "We're all slow to start out with." Info: 819-560-8565.

To be heard: some great local musical talent, and more. The Eaton Corner Museum's Irish Night is at the Bulwer Community Centre on Jordan Hill Road. It's on Friday, March 20, "so hang onto your clover leaf for a few more days after the 17th" said Jackie Hyman.

Also, registrations are now being accepted, even encouraged, for the second annual Heritage Golf Tournament on May 16 at the Coaticook Golf Course. Put together a foursome of friends, or register by yourself.

Both events are fundraisers for the Eaton Corner Museum. Info: Visit eatoncorner.ca, call 819-875-3685, or email info@eatoncorner.ca.
