    I know some hate it– farmers for instance.

    But I like it. :)

    Give me more light in the evening.

    It's so silly and causes mild chaos every year for absolutely no reason.

    No. They work by the cycle of the sun. It's for the city people. Supposedly it's to save energy costs.

    I hate it. We are leaving "standard" time to go to daylight saving (it's not daylight savings time). How can something be called"standard" when it's only for a little over four months a year and the other time zone is almost eight months a year. Daylight saving time should be caused the standard.

    I would be all for the losing the hour if it was during the week (like a Friday afternoon), but nope, let's screw us all during the weekend.

    LOL...no worries Trouty. I have to admit I had a 'few" beers in me when I wrote that. I probably say daylight savings half the time. I just don't like losing the hour. Just have one time and leave it at that.

    Now, when people say the 4th of July instead of Independence Day. :)
