If I'm not mistaken, moving my clock forward an hour will bring my dreaded wakeup time one hour closer to me....meaning I actually lose an hour of sleep.....

For a minute there I got excited.

I just found out about this today as well, and it seems a wee bit early in the year, am I the only one feels like that? Seems like it should be a few weeks away.

You are definitely not alone in that thinking.

Seems like it should be around the 18th or may 1st weekend in April...

Pretty much everything I own that has a clock on it does this automatically. Except the truck. I'll probably get around to that one in the two-three months.

Or Indiana where they do't participate at all.

I havnt thought about it for years because everything that has the time and date that i own, changes automatically


does mean that an hour less in bed?

Great, just friggin great.

I think like a firing squad at dawn; I'm going to be thinking about my hour less, I'd rather than just be surprised with it! (i really enjoy sleep when i get a good one, since I get insomnia)

Thank you for that! Will do.
I remember when I was a kid learning the
spring forward fall back way of time keeping.
My first thoughts were to
question who thought of such a thing and
was able to perpetuate it?

I do believe it was Ben Franklin that came up with Daylight Savings time.

And it's bee argued about ever since.

Thanks for the reminder! I live in a country that doesn't do daylight savings time, so that means that I will henceforth be awake when Jon Stewart comes on! weeeeeeeeee!

Some reason, that does sound familiar to me also.

Thanks

Like I said my girls, 8 and 6 don't tell time the way the rest of us do. setting a clock ahead of back, meaningless to them.

At midnight our youngest woke us with a blood curdling scream, she'd crawled under her bed because her big sis dared her too and got stuck. then a 3, or was it 4? my oldest needed a drink and daddy had to go with, to turn on the lights. and before I was allowed to go back to bed the little one starts complaining about her back hurting... and needs her daddy to rub it all better.

Parenting and daylight savings time suck...until they do something cute...the girls not the government... Whatever the feds do usually just pissess me off
