I had that issue with my cell phone not changing last time. Most cell phones, I think need to be shut off, then turned back on, and the time will change on it.

It's always hard on me when we have to lose an hour of sleep! DH and I went to bed at 10:00..(which was really 11:00) but didn't end up falling asleep until almost 11:00 (so 12:00) It just really screws me up!!

I just started a new job about a week ago, and have to get up at 5am every morning... What a great time to have to lose an hour of sleep!!

my cell phone didn't change, it was wrong but I used that as a back up alarm clock so I didn't turn it off, didn't know you had to. called work too, they kept me on hold for a hundred years, I couldn't wait to find out the time anyway. blah blah blah

BTW...love the Salvidore Dali clock

Trust me, those farmers are out there at 2 in the morning these days if they feel the need.
I think the only people DST may help anymore are the Amish.... and they probably could care less

It was just starting to look like morning might be coming when I leave for work at 6:30, now it is back to the middle of the night.

I love Daylight Saving Time. Given the choice of dark mornings or dark afternoons, I choose dark mornings. You can thank/curse Ben Franklin for the idea. I doubt he will care which.

Fortunately, most of our things (computer, clocks, DVD player, etc.) set themselves. I just had to change the microwave, my watch, car clock, and a couple clocks. BTW, for those who are into those kinds of things (wordplay, that is), there is no "s" on the end of the word "Saving" in DST.

P.S. Don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke detectors. DST is a good way to remember to do that. Ours are hardwired, so they don't use batteries, but I know a lot do.

As I get older, the more I appreciate Daylight Saving Time. The last few years I've not had any trouble adjusting to losing an hour because I change all our clocks right after lunch on Saturday and follow the "new" time for the remainder of the day. I've discovered that doing this helps a lot.

I do not like DLST let nature do what she intended so what if it's light or dark earlier or later. Why mess with the time, Arizona doesn't also another state. Sure it's great when you gain an hour but losing an hour wrecks havoc on my sleep.

Am I dreaming or did Ronald Reagan do away with Daylight savings time for a while? It's possible I AM dreaming as I woke up with the roosters this morning, no ACTUALLY before the roosters

You're dreaming. It changed last in 1986 and prior to that 1974. No Reagan president either of those times. Actually I think it was Nixon that had a hand in one of the changes.
