    Default Losing an hour

    It's that time of year again, the time when we lose an hour because of Daylight Saving Time.

    Spring forward, as they say.

    The good thing is that it will be a lot easier to get to the beach before sunrise. Like today.

    I'm really tired. When I first saw the topic, I could have sworn you wrote that it was the time when we lose hair, instead of losing an hour.

    I'm going to go to bed now. I'll read more on the board after I have gotten some sleep.

    I don't know about other people but yesterday I was good for absolutely nothing all day long. I kept dropping things and making mistakes and was very slow at everything I tried to do. There's a campaign to end Daylight Saving Time. I might sign up for it.

    Daylight Savings Time messes with our body clocks in our family. For Jon, it affects the timing of his med doses. It takes my body clock a long time to recover from losing or gaining an hour every year. I want consistency!

    I'm sure that there are thousands of sites on the internet about how time changes affect all of us biologically, mentally, emotionally. But I'm too tired to look them up right now. Because I lost an hour yesterday and today.

    We still haven't changed all of our clocks. (We have a lot of clocks.)

    I'm not a fan of DST. Never have been, never will be. Make it go away.

    UGH!

    Love & Light,

    Somebody posted a video on Facebook in favor of ending Daylight Saving Time. According to the video, the biggest supporter of DST is the US Chamber of Commerce, and the idea is that if we have more daylight in the evening, we'll be spending more money.

    Glad to see I've got company. I do not like DST. I have not felt well past few days and I am blaming it on that.

    Cool

    DST was created to give farmers an extra hour of daylight, thus the name "daylight saving time". But now the farming is mechanized, and controlled, and a small population feeds the masses.

    So even having DST is not needed these days. I hope they do a reality check, and end it.
