I like saving time. With Kodak cameras :) Make this moment a Kodak one.

Daylight Saving Time = Global Warming

All those extra hours of daylight you see . . . .

I blame . . .

I love it and would like to leave it - as in all year long.

Depends on whether I get to sleep more or less.Hate it in the Spring, love it in the Fall.

Not everyone is independently wealthy like you, so they have to get up and go to work at a certain time and leave work at a certain time, but would like to enjoy the outdoors more in their off time. I hate the spring adjustment. Sometimes I would like for them to just keep it one way or another.

Local Noon worked well for centuries, but unfortunately with today's communications and technology there has to be a standardized time. If you want more daylight, move closer to the equator.

Since I don't have a regular sleep schedule, I barely notice the changes. I often go days without going outside or even looking out a window. When I was younger, I had stronger feelings on the subject. I think I'll go to be now.

Hell, I'm a morning person anyway! Get up, get things done, then coast all afternoon! Or from 11 AM as the case may be . . . .

Almost caught up on the Dillon 550. Got the range bag loaded up,(feels like it's prepared for a major uprising) and headed for an afternoon at the indoor range. Happy Shooting everyone!

Loathe and despise. We no longer need to hurry home to tend our vegetable gardens to help defeat the Kaiser.

Neither. It is what it is. Although, if we didn't have the time change twice a year, I'd have no way of knowing when to change the batteries in my smoke alarm. And to do whatever else it is that I'm supposed to do whenever we change the clocks.

Greatest idea ever! You can still have coffee at first light & play longer in the evening. DST all year long, please. I don't care if it's darker longer in the morning. I'll be up before most of y'all anyway.

Sure did enjoy showin' them young whippersnappers the old man hasn't lost his shootin' skills. Gives 'em something to try for though. The son-in-law is gettin' close . . . very close.
