the clocks have just gone forward one hour in the uk. I always remember which way it goes by the saying 'spring forward , fall back'
I'm gonna struggle with getting up in the mornings , but at least I've got the next week off of work to get used to it

Looks like us americans got the short end of that straw. I don't have the first week of april off. It stinks, i know. This is one of those things that moving to canada won't change. (If i ever get motivated enough to move my butt out of the states.)

I don't know why they have to bugger around changing the time like this.
It's a pile of

Utterly mindless - Humanity survived thousands of years without all this stuff so we don't need it now.

Daylight savings is done to save energy.
Aparently we save 1% per day on energy by changing the clock one hour.

And Pisky, I'll take one of those:w:

Daylight Savings was 'invented' for want of a better word by some British Guy to give lighter evenings so people could enjoy the Day more and considered it better for our Health

Forward.. or Backward!

I thought DLS was "invented" so farmers would have more time to work in the field. ?

In any case, I cannot wait for DLS! Chicago (41 degrees North Latitude) in winter is this: You wake up, its dark. All "day" long, its grey. At 4pm, its dark again. I think Chicago is the birthplace of Seasonal Affective Disorder!

I hate hate hate winter!!! (Yeah, I know, I should leave this hell pit!) Summer is great because at least you can see your hand in front of your face!

You know those areas of the globe where its dark ALL day long, then continuously light? Pole areas? I could NOT exist in such a spot, I'd kill myself!
Whenever I see nature sorts or explorers on TV raving about such places, I think they are straight up nuts!!!!!

Thanks too all for the FYI about the upcoming clock change (I never know exactly when it starts; but hey-the computer will tell me!)
Lucky UK has it earlier than us, evidently.
