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!

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.
