    This Sunday, March 14, at 2am, Daylight Saving Time once again takes effect, which means Americans will have to Spring Forward one hour at that time (or before you go to bed Saturday night.) And yes, this means one less hour of sleep, lol. (I don't think other countries extended their DST calendar.)

    I think this is such a waste of time. I thought it was originally to help save energy. I always thought it was just a plot by the battery companies to make you buy new batteries. I just don't see any benefits. Now the kids have to go to school in the dark. It throws off the feeding schedule of the children and animals. Can anyone name any benefits?

    I heard that we will find it somewhere in late October, of this year. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Yes, this is the best time to remember to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors! Your life may depend on it.

    Well personally I like it - I like it be lighter later.... Can get some things done outside after working. I think we should just leave it like this and never go back to regular time. In any event, I'm already an hour behind for the day, so gtg.

    You aren't alone! We had some very confused people walking into church towards the end of the Mass, this morning, who obviously forgot to do the same, lol.

    I got up an hour before my toddler did to squeeze in some extra work time, and felt like a superstar for waking up early... only to have to change the clocks and discover I really wasn't all that awesome.

    Stupid time change.

    All I know is that we changed the clocks over night here.

    I guess when the only thing between two countries is some imaginary line, we kind of all have to be together on these things - sort of how two adults sleeping in a single bed have to roll together in the same direction, or someone's taking a long fall.
