I think it is ridiculous to have everyone adjust clocks twice a year!
It just goes to show that once the govt implements something, it never goes away.

It doesn't bother my husband - he can go to bed at any time and wake up in 8 hours. Not me, my internal clock doesn't work like that. I am a night owl, and if I go to bed at 9:30 I am awake at 2 am like it's morning, and wide awake. Very annoying. Luckily I am retired and it's not an issue until I start taking care of my new granddaughter in April. I do hope it stays on DST.

Just dealt with 2 dogs, and DH confusion, at least the dogs just look at me expectantly, the DH keeps asking What Time is it Really ????
Please pick one, Canada will never make the decision util US does.
