I really think it's stupid. I hate the fact that I had to lose an hour, that is, I am a night person. I have a really hard time going to sleep. I stay up until 3am almost each night just watching TV. I feel like I just LOST some free time

I used to go to bed at 3:00 a.m. Now it is more like 4:30 to as late as after sun-up. Sheesh! Anyway, as far a losing an hour, you only lose an hour one day a year and you get it back in the fall. That is the only thing I like about going off Daylight Saving Time--having an extra hour to sleep that one night.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this evening. Fed/hayed the ponies at 6 (aka 5) & fed & walked the "hounds from "heck" at 7 (aka 6). Then enjoyed trying out a lusciuos new sea scallop recipe & had it on the table while it was just truly getting dark out.

I LOVE IT!! Lol!!!

I feel like I'm in an old Godzilla movie - 10 frames outta sync.

You aren't saying we haven't had a DST change other than these two years are you? This happens every year, twice a year to be exact - we fall back and spring forward - every year.

During the energy crisis we didn't "fall back". We kept that hour of daylight at the end of the day.

amy, awesome dali! i'd forgotten that one. thanks.

tonight is gonna suck, like every time change.

lots of the 3am morning news people and others who haven't been in since friday suddenly see their clocks off when they come in on monday morning, and aren't happy about it.

i mean, there's a central clock system (actually 2: an old 1 hz pulse system, and a modern time code system) that is supposed to drive all of the clocks in the building, but there's always a dozen or so that seem to escape the s.o.p..
clocks offset for international time zones, non-system battery operated clocks, defective clocks and line amplifiers, etc..
and everyone wants their clock set to naval observatory precision.

let's just say that i'll be busy tonight.

I'm saying that the day of daylight savings time has only changed three times in 40 years. It's always been the X Sunday of X month (example this year it's the Second Sunday of March) and that has only been "adjusted" three times, 1974, 1986 (effective 1987), and 2006 (put into effect in 2007).

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Well I'll be a monkey's uncle - see, I never knew it actually happened on the same day. I just know it's going to happen in the spring and in the fall

Learn something new every day. I learned that new computers don't tell you that they adjusted the time, turns out, I don't remember ever adjusting the time on this computer.
