    they changed it a couple years ago. I'll tell you it sure makes things here at the hospital complicated w/the computers. Each year everyone thinks it's all going to go well and that all of the vendors have things fixed but normally something goes haywire. Again; hopefully it'll go easier.

    It's hard on kids who are in school too. Takes them a while to adjust (and teachers too!)

    Most of Australia begins daylight saving this coming Sunday, 3rd October. Don't forget to put your clocks forward one hour on Saturday night before you go to bed!!!

    In answer to Nancy, YES, Indiana now observes DST. We didn't use to...only has been for the past few years. It was a really HUGE controversy in our state whether to adopt, or not.

    And, in answer to those who think that Nov 6 seems late to change..you are correct, also. This year it started earlier in March and goes later, into the beginning of Nov.

    As a Kdg teacher, I hate it in the spring. Staying light later in the evening causes the kids to be out much later in the evening when they should be home in bed. They are grouchy in the mornings and most kids (and many parents) get the idea that school is over, although we go into the beginning of June. It is such a struggle!

    Personally, I love DST...I love having more daylight in the evenings to go out for a walk after the heat of the day has cooled off. I just think it is dumb to change for a few months of the year. I would like us to be on DST all year long. Then nobody would have to worry about how to change their clocks.
    And...I have a favorite wrist watch that the stem is too hard to pull out so it is correct in the summer and an hour off in the winter. Too funny.

    I like DST better because it gives us longer daylight days. I just wish it would always stay like that and not go back.

    I just wish they would set it at one time or another. This changing stuff is not good.

    Hate DST. Why don't they compromise and just go back 1/2 hour this fall and leave it. :)

    I hate DST. It reeks havoc with my fibromyalgia. Personally I like it to get dark earlier. I'm a night person and that is when I like to do my quilting when it is dark outside.
