    Daylight savings time starts tonight
    I think it is causing global warming because it adds an hour of daylight every day.

    If we would do this in winter and not summer we would have warmer winters and cooler summers.

    The dog pushed me out of bed at whatever time 2AM is supposed to be, so I was able to change the clocks in real-time... to whatever the new time is.

    DST in the United States

    In the US, “Fast Time” as it was called then, was first introduced in 1918 when President Woodrow Wilson signed it into law to support the war effort during World War I. The initiative was sparked by Robert Garland, a Pittsburgh industrialist who had encountered the idea in the UK. Today he is often called the “Father of Daylight Saving”.
    Only seven months, later the seasonal time change was repealed. However, some cities, including Pittsburgh, Boston, and New York, continued to use it until President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted year-round DST in the United States in 1942.

    I'm not surprised. I hate it. We're not saving or 'gaining' anything. It's just another Government intrusion.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    I realized that the clock on the wall in the spare bedroom had been an hour off, now it's back to normal with no labor involved on my part....lol

    It is a good reminder of when to change your smoke alarm batteries.
