You aren't losing any sleep. Just think of it as paying back the extra hour you got in November.

I don't like it then either. Throws my Sunday mornings and my body off for entire week.

I have always hated the whole concept of daylight savings time. I hate it getting dark at 5pm in the winter and I hate it staying light until 9pm in the summer. Just leave it alone.

Yea but you don't get it you have to choose one. Personally lighter later is WAY better. I actually think daylight at 9PM is pretty awesome. The 5pm darkness is inexcusable. We should only have daylight savings time and never fallback in the first place, it just makes winter all that much more depressing.

I get what you are trying to say. As much as I want that extra hour in the winter I hate the late hour in the summer. I would just as soon keep it on Standard time.

Best of it is, you can almost figure out who waz gonna be late before they even come through the door.

Navajo indians can be heard mocking the white man.

"Only the White Man would cut the end off of a Blanket, Sew it on the other end and think that it's longer"!

Put that in your peace pipe and smoke it.
