Changing time is Stupid...



~~~~~~~

Places like Arizona, Hawaii and that little bit of Indiana who refuse to play the Daylight Savings Time game have it together in my mind.

I understand changing my calendar ahead to November.  Truly I do.  But setting my clocks back an hour?  That is just stupid.  Pick one time and stick to it.  Stop changing it twice a year.  It serves no valid purpose.  STOP!!!!

I loved when we lived in Sedona, AZ and didn't have to change our clocks.

I'm with you - it needs to stop!

We forgot to change the clock on the coffee pot so the coffee was happily being made at 4am instead of 5am - which was okay since I've been up since 3am. Sigh...

There you go, thinking practical again. ;)

Adrienne... 3 am? That sucks. I was up early, too :( I turn the coffee on myself though :)


Grog... Sorry. I'll try to refrain from that in the future.

I hate the time change. I refuse to change the time in the vehicles, my long suffering ;-) husband always does it. I told him when I retire I'm not changing the clocks at all, hell, maybe I'll use the clocks for target practice...

I get jet lag. Hate daylight saving time.

You want more light longer? Light a candle or throw the light switch. 24 hours is 24 hours. It's how you spend them that counts.

MADDOG... Actually, when the time changes in the fall, I go to work in the dark, and come home in the dark all winter long. I hate that.

Ahhh well...

My Dad always told me; "Son, you will be working from dark to dark. The time in between is yours." (Sleep is over-rated.)
