Hello fellow members!

Just a gentle reminder that (in the United States) there is going to be a time change on Sunday Nov. 4, 2012.

At 2:00 AM remember change your clocks back one hour; so you won't be late for work or whatever!

This reminder has been brought to you; by a member who cares.

Thanks for the reminder.

Spring forward and Fall back.

I never remember the dates and usually only remember when I see the cable box showing me a time that's an hour "off".

Thanks for the reminder caladonea!

I have marked it on the calender. I will set my clocks back before I go to bed Saturday night.

Everybody remember: Spring forward in the Spring, Fall back in the Fall!

No in the fall you lose an hour.

A good way to remember is:

Spring - spring forward (gain an hour)

Fall - fall backwards (lose an hour)

Edit: I may be wrong on this...and you just may be right....

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


Well now I'm questioning myself.


If you spring forward, you go immediately from 1:59Am to 3AM thus losing an hour.

If you fall back, you go from 1:59AM to 1 AM, thus gaining an hour.

No?

Yep, it's definately gain an hour, it surprises me just how confusing so many people find this.

Last weekend our clocks went back, it was a friends birthday, and I said what a lucky girl she was, gaining an extra hour of birthday....At first, she thought I was wrong, and was loosing an hour, until I pointed it out.

Where do you live?

I live in Seattle...and the time does not change until this Sunday.

It's easy in AZ we never change our clocks we just change time zones.


In the summer we are pacific and in the winter we're in the mountain time zone.

I think technically we're labeled as mountain time zone but in reality it works like I said above.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

We used to be that way here in Indiana which I always thought made the most sense. Part of the year we were same time as NYC, part of the year same as Chicago. Now since 2006, we're Eastern Time all the time. It was touted as a "business stimulus" which I don't think anyone ever saw.

Personally, I think it was so the politicians and plutocrats could play golf at the CC longer. Go figure.

I didn't know about that.

I live in southern Indiana and we still have to swap time around. Although, I really wish we didn't have to observe DST.

Funnily enough, there's a page on Wikipedia about it.

LOL 5 flags and 8 stars for reminding people to set their clocks back an hour.

Thinking of starting a new thread: Don't forget to brush your teeth!


Seriously though, I thought we set the clocks back in December. So, thanks for this.

Jigger...I just have to say a BIG THANK YOU to you...you make me laugh. To me you have a really witty and funny way of putting things; and many times you have given to me a moment of much needed fun and laughter.
