    Default time idioms

    Hi,
    I'd like to know some idioms relating to "time" for instance:
    in no time
    at the eleventh hour

    in the bluemoon
    in the long run
    on the dubble

    I'd like to know other idioms and some examples of the use of these idioms.

    in the bluemoon once in a blue moon
    in the long run
    on the dubble at the double [at double speed - comes from the military where to double means to run]
