    My Dad always said it didn't matter what time it was.
    He worked from sun up to sun set.
    Don't forget to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors.

    I agree. So many people think we gained a hour. We did not. We just re-arranged them. On both ends of time changes, spring and fall, I observed how it affected young children and not in a good way. I am always messed up by it, much like people whose schedule keeps switching around.

    When told the reason for Daylight Saving Time, the Old Indian said,
    "Only the government would believe that you can cut a foot off the top
    of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and get a longer blanket."

    It sure makes it hard on folks to get anything done outside after you get home from work (on a 1st shift type job 7-3:30)

    The time change messes with me for at least a week both times. Just leave time alone, it's hard enough for me to sleep through the night as it is.

    Spring is worse, fall is not real joy either: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29971599

    "
    Abstract
    Very recently, the European Parliament, called to decide on possible abolition of the Daylight Saving Time (DST), approved a resolution calling the scientific community to conduct a more in-depth evaluation. The question is based on disruption of body's circadian rhythms. We review here the relationship between DST and cardiovascular health. The available evidence suggests the existence of an association between DST and a modest increase of occurrence of acute myocardial infarction, especially in the first week after the spring shift. Possible mechanisms include sleep deprivation, circadian misalignment and environmental conditions. The role of gender and individual preference in circadian rhythms (chronotype) will need further assessment."

    My kids' sleep schedules would start changing on their own from 4 to 6 weeks before time change. They'd either start staying up later in the spring or going to bed earlier in the early fall on a consistent basis. They weren't exactly free range but were too energetic too late or too tired too early. The waking up part shifted but not as much.
    I'm one of the few that enjoys the chaos of time change.

    I know a ridgeback whose eating schedule is messed up. I can tell time by her requests to feed her. It is going to be an adjustment for her.

    I'm tired. Going to bed before 9:00. This is crazy. I will probably be awake in the middle of the night.

    Things that I don't like about setting the clocks back.
    1 It's pitch black by 5:30.
    2 My wife hates it and complains to me, like I can do something about it.
    3 I was hungry at 5 and supper was still an hour away.
    4 I have to make sure to make a lot of noise when I go out the back door so all the critters know I'm coming. I do not want to surprise a skunk at close range.
    5 I will be wide awake at 3 AM instead of 4 AM.
    6 I'm ready to go to bed at 8 but I know I will just lay awake for an extra hour.
    I'm sure there are more but that's it for now.:)

    I'm trying to adjust the animals feeding schedule by a half hour.
    Tomorrow will be interesting with the preschoolers' eating schedule. And for those that nap.
    I don't mind this time change that much, but really, really dislike the fall one.

    Just pick a lane and drive in it... Just pick a speed and drive that speed. Just pick a day, there are 23 hours and 56 minutes in it... passing a law doesn't change that.

    I feed the goats and walk about sunrise so I am walking about 6 instead of 7. Lots less traffic! We changed the dog feeding schedule a half hour so far. It will go to an hour later in about a week or so.

    Feeding the pups isn't something we need to worry about with the time change. They have an automatic feeder. We just make sure its full lol
    Both hubby and I looked and felt tired when we got up this morning even though we had 8 actual hours of sleep. I can't figure out why that would be. We both slept well and deeply.

    That is exactly how I felt last night.
    My stomach did not fall back 1 hour.

    The Feds think they are all powerful and do as they damn well please.
    Just to spite them I think I will leave one of my clocks on standard time. :p

    Actually DST was approved nationally by congress in 1966 and states have to request an exemption from the law.

    Another useless fact.
    Germany was the first country to make the switch on April 30, 1916 and around 40% of the world change their clocks.

    Uniform Time Act of 1966

    The law does not necessarily require that all states observe DST. Individual states may exempt themselves from DST and observe standard time year-round by passing a state law, provided:
    • if the state lies entirely within a time zone, that the exemption apply statewide, or
    • if the state is divided by a time zone boundary, that the exemption apply statewide or to the entire part of the state on one side of the boundary.
