    Don't forget to set your clocks one hour ahead before bed tonight!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I guess my local newspaper got the wrong memo.

    I wonder how many will follow this and be really late for church tomorrow morning?

    I understand that as a driver - hate delivering after sunset.
    However, I'm the other way - hate this one and love the fall.

    My daughter in Hawaii doesn't change time either. We jump from 2 hours difference to 3 hours difference.

    So true. The one in fall takes a while to adjust to.

    Many years ago, when I was still living in Flagstaff, the local government offices decided to accommodate for DLS time in their own fashion. When DLS goes into affect the offices change their open/close times. During DLS their office hours are 7-4 instead of 8-5. I don't know if they still do but at the time I thought it one of there better ideas.

    Reminder: This Saturday night, we're sending you back to the future!

    At precisely 2:00 a.m. and zero seconds (local time) Daylight Savings Time begins! If you forget to move your clocks forward by one hour, tomorrow, people will say "You're late, do you have no concept of time?"

    This doesn't apply to Saskatchewan - neither your cities, towns or farmland as far the eye can see. There are other places in Canada where Daylight Savings Time doesn't apply either, but if you're away from home tonight, then it does!

    Whew. So crazy for all of us.
    I need a DST lawyer.
    The US federal law that established "daylight time" in the United States does not require any area to observe daylight saving time. But if a state chooses to observe DST, it must follow the starting and ending dates set by the law. From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time.

    I already have 20 of my 30 clocks turned ahead 1 hour. I'll do the others before bedtime.

    I love watching the news on Monday and they talk about how people are so thrown out of whack because of the time change. It's one flip in hour for gods sake! Get a life.

    I have a good internal clock and takes about a week to reset it to the correct time.

    Also there are more accidents the following Monday.
