I don't know. I do know I had one less hour with DA.

With love,

Just in:

" (Reuters) - Switching over to daylight saving time, and losing one hour of sleep, raised the risk of having a heart attack the following Monday by 25 percent, compared to other Mondays during the year, according to a new U.S. study released on Saturday.

By contrast, heart attack risk fell 21 percent later in the year, on the Tuesday after the clock was returned to standard time, and people got an extra hour's sleep."

It's not nice to fool Mother Nature.


Daylight saving time linked to heart attacks: study | Reuters

[just in case people think I actually believe this, rest assured, I take it with a grain of salt. But it is interesting.]

Everything was so Atypical, they wouldn't have wanted me anyway, I would have skewed their numbers.

Why is the loss of an hour of sleep an automatic assumption? Unless you've set an alarm clock to wake you at a set time every Sunday morning, there's no reason you can't sleep until you wake naturally. If you wake up naturally an hour earlier, you can't blame that on DST.

None of these are an issue for me.
