I thought it was Fall forward, Spring back. No wonder I'm always late.

Oh, I just read about the Sandbar doing the Rocky Horror Bus Trip. The website one of the highlights of the evening was one woman at the movie, hadn't been before and she complaining at everyone to quiet down so she could hear the movie.

Irish, did you go see Rocky Horror with the Sandbar crowd on the Bus the other night?

Bob, Renaldo, you guys should take that act to the midnight showing of the "Rocky Horror Picture Show".

If you'd all start that now, I'd really appreciate it. In fact, just get the whole planet to come to a stand still before sunset tonight if you can swing it. I don't like Mondays.

If at 8 am tomorrow morning (1400 UTC), we would all spin counter-clockwise, each and every turn of our bodys will rob the planet of it's angular momentum, slowing it's spin by the tiniest bit, lengthing the day, and delaying the darkness.

Scratch (ALL) those earlier posts. Spring forward. (Can no longer fall back.)

That is like asking which is better, Miabock or Doppelbock?

the only spring i'm concerned with now is the firing pin spring on my model 700. the only fall i want to think about is when that 150 gr. nosler ballistic tip hits that buck in december and he falls on the spot.

Multi, When someone asks me what time it is, I generally answer "now".

I do believe most of you have it covered, although I do enjoy more sunlight later in the day whenever that happens. I haven't done much springing since 2005, and my falling tends to be to the right more than backwards now thanks to the ice storm in 2004.

How many things did/do you have to adjust the time on?

I left my LR one as it was in the spring, so I guess I could change the ca,r and then the bedroom, but will probably wait until the power goes out next time when I have to as it's a bitch physically (old,pointy buttons in the back). The computer and phone change themselves, so that leaves a potential 2 for me.

How about you?

The falling is easy. But with my knees, that springing is a little dicey at times.

( Springing backward invariably leaves one falling forward. )

I just want my summer back.

Did I miss it, we didn't seem to have a summer this year. We pretty much went from spring straight to fall this year.

I prefer often, but when I do it is Dos Equis.

Spring forward.... falling backward is too much. Especially in a bad crowd.

Neither. Just leave the time where it is.
