    Did you all remember to set your clocks back one hour tonight??????

  2. No, so glad you mentioned it, as I don't watch the news and they always remind you!! I hate it, hate it being dark at 5.

    Sunday night I will.....if needed. I don't think we have any clocks really. The computer and cell phone and they do it all by themselves....I need an extra hour of sleep I am tired. I have been sick.

    Sorry you're sick...

    I'm working an extra hour tonight...
  6. My computer decided to do that over a week ago... really weird.

    But yeah, need to do the other clocks, otherwise we'll be 45 minutes late... or 2:15 early... depending on which face you check. [​IMG]

    I HATE the time change....the only advantage is that I can turn all the birds out and still make it to a Poultry Show on time

    Quote:I hate it too, but since we are going off DST, this is the time it should really be.

    All the clocks I have change themselves, so I wouldn't even notice except for it being light at 7AM.

    I truly do wish that we stayed with CA... but alas, no changing of clocks in AZ.

    Our clocks went back a week ago - I get so confused as to how many hours is between us all and trying to work it all out to figure what time of day it is over there?
    Its 1.30 lunchtime here now. I think you guys are 5 hrs behind, least in Florida I think they are???? But then you all have different times zones and all that and if our clocks changed last week does that mean there was only 4 hrs difference ( you guys were only 4 hours behind not 5 for a week????)

    I get brain ache trying to figure it???? I just know here there are big discussions going on again about doing away with it. But I do like the fall back , spring foward clock. I have never known it different so it would be weird I think to get used to if it changed??? Apparently it would mean Scotland would be in darkness until after 10am in the morning - I wouldn;t like that as I have trouble getting up in the dark anyhow. The other thing I would miss too is the long coasy evening beside the log fire with the candles and oil lamps burning. It wont be the same if the evening is longer and brighter will it?????? - [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] - what do you all think???? Remember I am in Ireland.
