I despise the havoc this does to my body clock twice every year! I don't care if we're permanently on or off so long as it's permanent!

But thanks for the heads up! We're in denial so we won't be chasing clocks until tomorrow

I know what you mean. It used to drive Buck and me crazy, too. Then, we discovered that if we set our clocks ahead early in the day, even in the morning, on Saturday, we felt very little deprivation. Been doing it ever since and don't really notice the change.

Now, this doesn't work for everyone, especially those who must work on Saturday, etc., but it worked for us because we were/are able to set our schedule.

Another suggestion from Bobby Flay is to check your dried spices. If you bought them before the last time you changed the clocks, you'll probably need to chuck them. I thought that was an interesting thought process but it makes sense since spices don't last forever.
