    I say ban clocks from the face of the earth!
    Wake up when the light shines though the window and sleep when it get dark.
    Work when you want. Eat when you want. Vote for me and I will make it
    happen!

    Since I retired that is how I live every day. I don't even wear a

    Providing you watched the news or read the paper... I appreciated the
    reminder. I have a job interview on Monday!

    Shouldn't need to do that. Cellphones automatically set themselves
    because they get the time from the cell system when they power up and
    periodically after that. My phone even knew not to use DST when I turned
    it on after landing in AZ last year but quickly changed when crossing
    into CA. Even the first one I had in the early 90s set itself.

    Well, of course, to be technical, it's not "The Cell System", it's just
    the nearest tower. A year ago, I went on a road trip, all within the
    same time zone, but right next to another time zone. Depending on the
    terrain, it kept attaching to towers in the other time zone and changing
    the time. I finally shut off that feature in disgust! I haven't turned
    it back on, but probably should, since I seldom travel.

    I screwed up again. I thought it was tomorrow night, and if it wasn't
    for my Internet wifi connected alarm clock, I'd have not known it
    until much later this morning! But still, I feel an hour behind now.
    Good thing I don't go into work until 2:30PM! :-)

    That's what retirement is like. Or being unemployed. I've been both
    (temporarily) and it's great, except for the unemployment where the
    pay really sucks, but the hours are great!

    It's always a good reminder to replace the smoke-alarm batteries! Twice
    a year ain't a severe hardship. It's a minor bother/chore.

    In June, that wouldn't be nearly enough sleep.

    I would be interested, though, in reading how you would make this all
    happen.

    But a "tower" is just a pile of hardware unless it is linked into the
    cell system.

    Sleep in June? Summertime I plan to make the most of it. Winter blues I
    plan to sleep through it. The wonders of nature to provide more warmth and
    sunshine I will be happy to get less sleep during the summer. I am now in
    tune with the timings of nature.

    How I make this happen... I am retired
    If i was ruler of the earth it would be the law for all people to enjoy the
    summer!

    If all people were enjoying the summer you'd get mighty hungry after a
    while.
