    Don't forget to turn your clocks and watches and microwaves ahead an hour sometime tonight before you go to bed. Daylight savings time is back. :smile:

    Isn't there something funky about Indiana and Daylight Savings Time?

    Yeah, I live in Georgia, and I can attest to that. I live inside 285, and I have to turn the clock back every time I go OTP ...

    PLUS ... other countries aren't making the change now, are they? UK, Germany, Belgium, Australia, NZ, all the countries represented here ... the US started making the change ridiculously early, and I think you other folks had the sense not to go quite yet, correct?

    The UK switches to BST on 29th March until 25th October this year. I believe that's the time used by most nations who observe DST - in the Northern Hemisphere that is. The dates in the Southern being 'reversed' for most, but I don't know the specifics for each.

    Why don't women need watches?

    Because the stove and microwave already have a clock built in.

    Untrue, see above - it's called BST (British Summer Time).

    Not Sandringham time?:biggrin1:

    Mexico is not changing until the 29th, it is going to be a bit confusing to people who commute across the border, maybe they could carry two watches.
