    ***Daylight Savings-time***

    At 2am this morning, the clock struck 1am.
    My 2 annual questions are:
    Who forgot to set their clocks back 1 hour?
    And, did you remember to set the clock in your car?

    I never "sprung" my car clock ahead back in March. 8 months later, it is finally on the correct time once again.

    Bold strategy, RING4CY, but it looks like it paid off.

    I'm working a 6 pm to 6 am shift. At 2 am the clock struck 1 am and I said FML.

    Unfortunately, my kids don't recognize this whole daylight savings thing so it was an early morning for me.

    I did the exact same thing. Our strategy paid off in the long run, unlike those poor suckers who had to change their clock twice.

    Are we the only country that observes this? I mean, what about England? Who climbs up
    "Big-Ben" and resets that sucker? (of course that thing breaks all the time anyway)

    There's a map here (Daylight saving time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) that shows who observes it.

    After getting up early for the game yesterday and drinking last night I was out at 11. Body is trained to get up at 7:30 apparently, time to retrain what time that really is.
