Default Did you spring Forward or....?

In the tradition of warning everyone about Daylight Savings Time this Spring we are more our normal selves A Day Behind. If you did it fine. If not do it now.

My clocks do it automatically but my body wants to find and kill the a$$hole responsible for DST and torture them.

Some of my clocks do it automatically. The rest I have to adjust manually. I did that before going to bed last night.

I sprang forward and landed face first in a snowbank.

If it was up to me we would stay on Daylight time year round, hate the fall when we lose the hour of daylight in the early evening.

1980. Yes I can remember that far back. We have a couple of Atomic Clocks that screw it up twice a year only to reset the hour and never have the correct minutes. We can reset the minutes as many times as we want they always go to Sun time.

I read an interesting article and put it up on FB. Studies show that that DST is bullcrap. There is no savings of energy, but there is an increase of heart attacks, strokes and car wrecks. In other words ... there is no reason for it.
