Even though I have the auto-adjust and DST turned off, my DVD recorder refuses to recognize the new time. It keeps setting it's-self despite the fact that it's been told specifically not to. So now it still think's it's 5:00 am when everything else say's 6:00am, so I had to change the SCHEDULE to get the correct shows.

Grrrrr!!!!

Remember to spring forward when you turn in tonight.

Oh, and BTW, it's Daylight Saving, without the 's'....:)

Amen! I love daylight saving time, because I have more time to spend doing things outside (mostly drinking beer) in the evening.

I used to be a morning person, but I outgrew it.

However you view it, I saw (and have) a cartoon of Richard Nixon explaining Daylight Saving Time. It shows him holding a blanket that has had approximately one third of one end cut off and sewed onto the other end.

His comment, "This is Daylight Saving Time" or some such thing. I always think of that cartoon when we're reminded to change our clocks...forward or backward.

Doesn't really matter to me. For years and years, I've changed our clocks about mid-day on Saturday. We never feel anything negative from the change. If you think TV, most of what we watch has already been recorded or we watch a disk we have on hand from Netflix. By morning, we never even know anything has happened.

Daylight saving time (light-hearted humor)

As a friend mentioned, after six months the clocks in his cars will have the right time again. I'll have to dig out my car's manual. I have the page bookmarked. DH is on his own with his Jeep.

My (broken banded, unwearable) watch needs fiddling. I did spring it forward after pushing numerous combinations of buttons. Don't ask me how I did that.

As Katie mentioned, there's an old Indian saying: only the government can cut off the top of the blanket, sew it on the bottom, and expect it to be longer.

Before I retired, I noticed daylight savings time really effected the kids and teachers. Everyone stumbled around for at least a week afterward. Probably a good thing that it's spring break now here along the river.

My computers and my watch take care of the time change automatically. My watch is a Casio G-Shock Tough Solar Atomic, meaning that it receives a radio signal every night from the atomic clock in Ft. Collins CO and sets itself to that. It's never even as much as a 1/2 second off. Since it also has a battery that is kept charged by solar/light and is waterproof to 200 meters deep, it is maintenance free - 100% hands off. I almost never take it off, even at night.

I'm a fan of DST. I prefer having the extra hour of daylight in the evening. I don't understand how they function in a place like Indiana where they let the counties decide to do it or not - the time can change when you go from one county to another. I know that Arizona doesn't do DST - I still don't understand why, but at least it's the whole state.
