    Yeah, and it's after 5:00 here on the southeastern seaboard. Had breakfast
    for dinner last night: eggs, sausage and yellow grits. Guess I'll be
    having "dinner" for breakfast

    Jill,

    A couple things I forgive is changing the microwave and the VCR timers.

    I'm OK with letting them read 00:00 year after year or after power
    outages!

    It's a curse have to reset such simple things, imho.

    Yes, I'm happy it is here. I've been saving Daylight for the past couple of
    years and we're going to use it on vacation next winter.

    My bedroom's clock/alarm/radio has the automatic change feature. Too bad I
    bought it the year before congress changed the dates. Now, four times per
    year I get to change adjust my clock for daylight savings time. I love
    progress 8-)

    Yeah, I got tired of that crap. For our clocks, you can turn off that
    feature where they set themselves. That's what we've done. The
    computers are smart enough, but only if your software is current (the
    dates are hard coded into the software, believe it or not).

    I thought my cell phone would set itself, but I had to turn it off and
    on before it changed.

    itsjoannotjoann,

    I still have to spring the kitchen wall clock ahead.

    It's a cheap-o battery operated clock that I never look at. What, between
    the cell phone and the wristwatch?!

    The only reason I even change the battery is to hear the soothing tick
    tock sound it makes. Let's me know at least SOMETHING'S alive and
    kickin'.

    Best,

    Andy

    I'm reminded of a cheap-o atomic wristwatch I bought about 10 years ago.
    The idea that it would automatically (or on demand) satellite acquire the
    correct time from the atomic clock somewhere in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA
    to anywhere on earth that I was, appealed to me....

    ....for about a week!!!

    After which, I became neurotic, wondering if I was a micro-second late for
    something. I actually threw it away. I almost gave it to a homeless bum in
    town but thought better of it. He couldn't be bothered, talking to
    invisible demons, etc.

    What happens if you don't change the time on your cell phone? Does it
    not ring until an hour later?


    > I HATE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME!!!


    It makes little difference to me, but I don't understand the suggestion
    that it saves energy. Instead of using lights at night people have to
    turn on more lights in the morning.

    I thought I could rely on the electronic program guide
    to tell me what time it is, but I got confused about
    what time it was because every channel had it wrong
    until after noon, when one channel fixed their clock.
    PBS still has it wrong, and it's after 1 PM.

    Once the day gets longer, we use less power for lights in the AM and turn
    them on even later in the evening. Overall, little real difference. The
    only thing I like about DST is that it shifts the daylight hours to later in
    the day when we can be outside to enjoy them more. If I was on the opposite
    end of the time zone, it would not matter. Of course, that depends on your
    daily schedule anyway as many have different work hours.

    I'm saving the daylight to use during a winter vacation. It will be hand
    for that.

    I can't be bothered doing the research, but the way I remember it, it
    had more to do with energy conservation.

    The U.S. Congress changed the date of transition because
    of lobbying by an association of barbeque-related manufacturers.

    And to think this all started during World War 1 (or was it WW 2?) to
    conserve coal!!

    Geez, I just reset my car's clock two months ago - whaddaya WANT?
    One of these days I WILL write up a handy-dandy how-to card for the
    glove box instead of having to pore over the owner's manual twice a
    year. The time on a phone I own is an equal pain - at least I noted
    on the manual's cover which page had the instructions.
    Used to be so easy with just a wall clock and a watch.
