// Last two functions are used to create a correct date object from a UK date string

    var newDate = CreateFullDate("01/01/1900", time);
    // Get the decimal value of minutes
    var decimalTime = newDate.getHours() + (newDate.getMinutes() / 60);
    // Multiply by 60 and round to get the correct number of minutes
    return Math.round(decimalTime * 60);

    // Next take the uk date object and convert into an american date string!
    var formatUS = formatUK.format("MM/dd/yyyy");
    // Create a new date object from the american date and time
    return new Date(formatUS + " " + TimeStr);
