True! Additions to that trivia:

"For the U.S. and its territories, Daylight Saving Time is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, and Arizona. The Navajo Nation participates in the Daylight Saving Time policy, even in Arizona, due to its large size and location in three states."

Now, while I understand the "intent" of DST - it screws people up! I applaud those governments who refuse to do it!

RE: Indiana ... I believe that all counties observe DST starting in 2006 - I was talking to a coupole of guys on the radio last year and they were not happy about it ...

Fall is not too bad as we gain an hour but spring is awfull as we lose an hour but I think we should just go with nature.Not only that its just confusing not to mention traveling with the different time zones in other countries I never did adjust to the time in Germany even after 3 weeks which was only about 8 hours ahead.

Interesting. My computer clock is set to automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time, and it didn't change a week early. I guess I will see if it changes overnight! If I remember correctly, Daylight Saving Time also started a week earlier this year, and my computer clock changed at the right time.

If your computer operating system (Windows or MAC) is updated regularly, the updates have taken care of the changes in the daylight savings time.
