It's time to fall back!

for those of us who recognize daylight savings time, don't forget to set your clocks back an hour at 2am.


lol, when i was younger, it meant there was another hour to drink, before last call.

now, i change the batteries in my smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

how times have changed, let alone the clocks. hmmmm.

can i fall back a decade or two?

At my age, falling back is not usually a problem. I am having some trouble with springing forward, though.

The absolute only time I like the end of Daylight Saving Time is the Sunday morning after the change because we can sleep an extra hour before leaving for church. Otherwise I wish it were Daylight Saving Time all year. I hate it getting dark so early. It won't make such a difference for me, since right now I'm not working, but it does mean more chances of James running into a deer on his way back to Columbia Sunday evenings. He has been trying to leave before dark (not usually succeeding) but now that will be impossible. Oh well! Hey, maybe the deer will change their clocks back too.

You can set your computer to do automatic updates for the clock so you wont have to do that manually. Not sure about all the other things you have to change. 14 clocks and watches

LOL - Amber ... yes and no ... only if the powers that be don't change the dates like they did this year. This year we fall back a week later than usual ... and I had to spend a day fighting with my computer, and a couple of clocks, wanting to fall back on the usual day ... arrgh!

There was a blurb on CNN, I think, earlier today that says a study in Europe shows that people's internal clocks don't adjust to the "artificial time change" ... heck - I knew that!
