I wish the time changes would go back to the way they were before Congress meddled and changed it. It is too early in the year to go to DST.

I wish they would just do away with it completely and then we can get into a sleep pattern and never have to change it again. Or change all the clocks again. Oh, and tell me the earthshaking reason why we do this again????

This is just like that thread going on and on last month about "humidity". I am not familiar of that or this "daylight saving time". What are you talking about?

I'd vote in favor of just staying on daylight saving time all the time. I hate it in winter when it gets dark at 4:30 pm. June when the sunset is 8:30...

Disagree with bothof you.

Its not that hard to adjust for one hour, come on now

If it was up to me would just stay on DLS

How about split the difference. Make a 1/2 hour move and leave it there permanently. Don't really care now the we're retired, get up when we wake up, go to bed when we're sleepy.

Being in AZ. I do not need to worry about DLS. But the trip back east next month will have 3 time changes.
If it was my vote that counted. We would stay on DLS year around. Including AZ.

Best idea yet. Now tests have come out saying strokes are more common because of DLS and time changes. Once they take this into consideration they most likely will do away with it which is years to late in my opinion.

I'm in Quartzsite and have no idea what you guys are whining about.

Besides what could possibly go wrong?


The information is out there, all you have to do is let it in.

1 hour time change is nothing after working 12 hr rotating shifts for 22+ yrs.
Seemed like I was always on shift in fall when we had to do 13 hrs due to time change but was always going on shift in spring when I only got 11 hrs. between shifts

Now that we live in AZ I get confused....am I same as CA time or an hour different??


But seeing as I don't wear a watch....don't even know if my clocks are on time it doesn't matter any more.

Ah retirement

Hahahahaha - love the comments!!

I grew up on the East Coast - springing ahead and falling back was a way of life - never though about it.

Then I moved to Indiana. When I came here in 1987, Indiana was like Arizona and Hawaii - we never changed. I use to tease the locals and my wife, a native Hoosier, that Indiana was "The Land That Time Forgot!"

We now change our clocks and are in the Eastern Time Zone but before we changed it was just as confusing..........

In the summer, we were Central Time, in the winter we were Eastern Time. So when the TV said 8PM 7 Central we had to think about it for a minute......LOL. Really was a problem when I first moved here and had to set VCRs with actual times!!! Thank goodness for TiVo!!!

But wait - there's more............when I moved here I was still in the Army, I was a supervisor and had subordinates soldiers in Chicago (Central) and Louisville (Eastern). So everyday I delt with 2 different time zones that would flip-flop every Spring and Fall............

Now we live within an hour of Central Time Zone and get to enjoy very late sunsets in the summer......

I heard on the news last nigh that the change of time in the Spring causes more heart attacks and strokes for people that are susceptible to them.......hmmmmm.
