    Spring ahead -- except me.

    Don't forget to set you clock ahead one hour before you go to bed. Me will I won't, ... I won't loose any sleepover it either.

    I really, really wish they would leave the clocks alone. There is no point to it anymore. Is there?

    We could compromise

    1/2 hour in spring
    1/2 hour in fall

    Then leave the doggone thing alone

    Been my argument for years... LOML gives me the old "Yeah Yeah, leave it alone" look whenever I get started on the subject... If you need more daylight, get up earlier.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    I agree, Chuck. Get up earlier. Or, get up earlier, like around 4:30am, start work at sunrise and work until it gets dark! Then if you haven't had enough daylight that way, then you are just plain weird!!! Or you definitely have more giddyup than I do now.

    When Dad was farming, Mom used to say he got up early enough to wake the rooster so he could crow...

    Like Bob's suggestion. Leave the time alone. If you need more working time get earlier or stay up later.
    That time screws up my body rhythm for days.
