Hi everyone. Just a reminder to set your clocks forward one hour this Saturday night for Daylight Saving Time.

Talk to you later!

I always feel like I'm missing out when we 'loose' our hour. This year, though, I'm starting new oncall duties for work on Sunday ... the daylight savings means I'll need to be waking up around 5 instead of 6!!!

Since I get up at 5:30am, it is tough to get going when it is dark out. This is always a welcome change and I do not mind giving up the extra hour of sleep. This also brings the chirping birds back too!

Changing the numbers on a clock does not create more daylight.

who says it's an hour of sleep you're losing?

I think we should just shift to daylight savings time for the entire year. It's nice having some daylight when I get out of work. I cannot wait for the earth to roll over and even our her tan.

I think you've got it the wrong way around John ... with the clock going forward an hour, the darkness you currently have at 5:30 will become 6:30, so you will have even longer in the dark in the morning, but it will make the evening lighter later ...

As an aside, we do not put our clocks forward in the UK until Sat 28th / Sun 29th weekend, which means when I fly over to NYC in two weeks time for the Beacon there will only be a four hour time difference to cope with

When you work on a schedule... It is sleep you lose.

And I love the chirping birds! ( BTW, I saw a robin today. All by himself; he'll find a mate soon.)

Well you gained an hour in the Fall, so you were sleeping on borrowed time anyways. You can catch up on it when you get home, unless you find yourself enjoying the newfound evening sun too much
