Time Bandit

Ah, I'm not a fan of Daylight Savings. It's possibly my least liked day of the year. Why? After all, you get the benefit of longer days, brighter evenings, and that "summer" feeling from March thru November. Well, I don't like any day of the year that steals an hour of sleep from me, even if I do get it back in November (incidentally, my favorite day of the year). It's just wrong on so many levels. A lot of people like Daylight Savings. MetaDaddy is one of those people. We'll just have to agree to disagree on that one.

Of course, family and friends in other countries (e.g., Ireland) haven't lost that hour yet. Since we moved our Daylight Savings forward, they've got another few weeks of yummy sleep, as do most other countries it seems. Then again, most of MetaDaddy's family is probably looking forward to longer days of daylight.

This is a good time to remember certain things like testing and changing the batteries in smoke alarms.


Revision: In addition to changing the time on your clocks, don't forget to change the time on other things set on timers like lamps, front door lighting, sprinklers, etc. You probably don't need the light in the living room on at 5PM any more ;-)
