I know the sun is going to go down later today. Could someone come inside long enough to fix the headline on this story?

I'm hoping that this time switch will fool the baby into sleeping in a little later. Then maybe I'll be able to get a little more done in the morning before he wakes up. That or I'll at least have 30 minutes to myself with my coffee and ljworld.com

Alright, tomatogrower, catch of the day! What would do me? I told the doc recently, if I was given the choice of a lobster dinner or sex I may have to think about it. He said if I hesitate at all I better choose the lobster . . .

My old grandpappy always said "First liar never stands a chance!" So much for relying on a google search.

I bow before the great and powerful Hollis. Long may he reign.

Um... Yes, not sure about the Nam part, but yes to the rest. Sorry Roe. I prefer DST, but would settle for one or the other, I detest changing the times twice a year. Beautiful day, I'm outta here

Fun fact: The idea was first floated back in 1784 by one Benjamin Franklin. While minister of France he wrote the essay "An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light." The idea failed to see the light of day until practically 100 years later, when the U.S. railroads instituted a standardized time for their train schedules. That time change was imposed nationally during the first World War to conserve energy, but was repealed after the war ended. It became the national time again during World War II.

Fun Fact: That deviant commie Ben Frankin had syphilis and he also worked for the Post Office. Plus, he started that war in 'Nam.

Put it in my pocket. Then I'd have a pocketful of sunshine.

I'm going to be praying for the people of Japan. I heard their worried about meltdowns now. I thought I was going to have a meltdown once, but I took some medicine.

Finally, a good reason for DST..... “Learn how to install a hard drive on my laptop.”

I don't know. Probably eat more. And poop more. I have a pooping problem. I poop too much.

I love the change. I hate to come home after work in the dark. It makes me feel like the day is over. I would like it all year long.

DST does not increase the number of light hours. It enables conservation of energy as it allows daytime ran business' to utilize hours naturally lit by the sun and not waste energy. It just messes up our natural internal clocks and causes us to readjust our daily life schedule!

I LOVE daylight saving time. It is too bad they just don't make it year round. Unfortunately, anti-DST fanatics are all about dead children under school buses in the dark, teenagers with hormones causing them to learn less in the morning, cows utters that are upset, and they would probably claim that even UFO's are more sinister during DST.

Of course if business hours (standard working hours) started much earlier than we would have no need for DST, but lots of people would rather sleep in than get up and go to work.

@Sue

It's not hard you just need the proper tools. Start with a hammer and chisel to open the case and gain access to the drive. Then use a small to medium pry bar to remove the old hdd. To install the new one, take your hammer and gently, gently pound that sucka in. . . . . . . Sorry...I've been misinformed...ignore my advice. But I've a question...why do you need more daylight to do that?

For people working a regular daylight job who also enjoy working and playing outdoors, it is the greatest day of the year. For those not so inclined, it has no real effect other than adjusting their circadian rhythm somewhat and griping about a loss of sleep. The original purpose of DST is inconsequential, but the impact on our social lives is huge. Yahoo!

I would fix that hole where the rain gets in. It stops my mind from wandering.

I would sell golf balls down by the river. Maybe start up a kayak repair service.

Be at the baseball/softball field longer. Last night before 7, the boys could barely see people. Next week at 7, I'm sure will be MUCH better.

George Vernon Hudson came up with the idea of Daylight Savings Time in 1895. It has been used in different forms by countries worldwide since then. I blame the extra hour of daylight for global warming, earthquakes and hurricanes. God Hates DST!!

Deec is almost right. DST doesn't increase the amount of daylight, it just shifts the time of it. Summer days do have more daylight than winter days do, however. I like to spend the extra hours of summer daylight scopin' babes.

There is no extra hour of daylight. It's a scam. Each day has X number of hours of daylight. Changing the clock does nothing but mess up everyone's circadian rhythms. What's-his-name hates threading. I hate daylight savings time!
