    Once again, farewell to daylight saving! It should have been the last time we do this stupidity, but here in the EU we’ll have to wait at least one more year, even they have voted to ditch the system.

    It’s funny how 1 hour shift forward or backward takes so much time to get used to. There have been studies that it has negative health effects. My wife suffers about one week until gets used to it.

    This turning of clocks doesn’t really apply to me, because I can’t sleep properly anyways, what ever the clock might be. Only the bother to update the time in every clock there is.

    My late grandfather never changed the time on their clocks in spring one hour forward. He said that he won’t live in our great neighbour’s time, no matter what.

    Happened in my time zone (GMT+2) at 0400, clocks were turned back to 0300 (standard time). So one more hour to sleep. But apparently I’m not taking the advantage.

    And as usual, here in Arizona, we don't with this B.S. at all...except our online TV schedules are never completely right since they come from elsewhere.

    It happens next week in US. In Europe, or at least parts of it, it changes earlier.

    Is that typo or Freudian slip? :lol: Being a Tele forum, it could be the latter!

    Btw, don’t they have headlights in their tractors?

    I lived in the province of Saskatchewan for thirty years. It's the only Canadian province that doesn't change the clocks. I liked it. I'm next door in the province of Alberta and the clock does fall back by an hour tomorrow I think. Since I don't change the time on my watch in spring, it will be the correct time tomorrow night.

    Boohoo, you have to change a clock twice a year. Your life is so difficult.

    Hate it:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
    . Imagine a 47C ( 166.6F) day here and it's light from 5;30 a.m. till near on 9;00 p.m. This is highly likely to occur in my state.

    Well, where I live in Arizona (Navajo Nation)- Daylight Savings is observed. In the REST of AZ, it’s not, so every trip to town or Phoenix, we gain an hour, but then we lose it on the way back to the Rez... oh- and the Hopi reservation (entirely within the bounds of the Navajo Rez) doesn’t observe it either, do my phone does this whole schizophrenic thing while traveling so that I’m never quite sure what time it is until I get to where I’m going...

    OBTW- Arizona doesn’t buy into the saving of daylight thing due to energy costs- the LAST thing you want on a day that it gets up to 115 F (46 C) is one more hour of daylight!! :eek::eek: Fortunately, Navajo Nation is up on the Colorado plateau at about 6500 ft or so, do we rarely get super hot here!!

    I certainly agree with the sentiment of this.

    I believe introduced here in WWII as a way to help farmers it now seems to be one of these nostalgic things that we seem increasingly unable to let go of ;)... eg Victorian child poverty!

    They simply voted that countries can decide on their own if they implement it or not.

    Surely enough daylight has been saved by now that some of it could be given out to worthy recipients.
