He once refused to speak to me for nearly 6 hours because I went shooting with the Downsouth family, and Ms Downsouth was there, and I didn't take him!

And he wondered why I was so worried about meeting his sisters and his son...

Exactly! Hot is what you'd notice! It takes more than "hot" for an "older woman" to impress the kid!

The way I've always figured it, if a person wants to enjoy more daylight, they should simply get up earlier. Changing the numbers on a mechanical device doesn't do it.

Oh I've heard the old spiel, for the farmers, yada yada yada... Still never made sense to me. I never did see anything they couldn't do that suddenly became possible by changing the clock.
Yes, I understand all that. The irony isn't lost on me. But I like cooking on the grill in the summer at, say, 1930 or 2000 and still have it light out. In the summer it's light out at 0500. I hear the birds singing in the trees. But I'm not going to go out and cook on the grill or mow the lawn or shoot hoops with the kids at 0500. There's just something awesome about those looong hot summer days that stretch long into the evening. The sun sets at 2030 or so. It just makes me happy.

Changing the numbers on a mechanical device doesn't make the day any longer, of course, but it redistributes the daylight to let us enjoy the sunlight longer after getting home from work. I just love the late evening sunlight and a sunset closer to 2100 than not.

Was going to say something like this but woc said it way better. The boss says I have to work 8 or more hours a day I don't get to choose which 8, if I did it wouldn't matter, but I want as much daylight after those 8 as I can get so I like daylight savings time.

As for the farmers I don't know about the rest of them but it sure screwed up our milk cow when Dad would go to the barn an hour early or an hour late by the cows clock. The horses stomachs rebelled a little bit for a day or two after the switch also.

Yeah, the animals have to be eased into it. But they adjust.

pH refers to the "potential for Hydrogen" and is shown on a scale of 1-14, with 7 being neutral, 1 being acid and 14 being "Base" or alkaline.


Oh, wait-- I guess I am confused as to what you meant.....

Sometimes it takes a while to pinpoint exactly what is going on with a person's medical situation. Her low O2 could also be from heart problems rather than lung problems. Give the medical professionals a chance to do some tests and find out what's wrong............and hope that it's something that can be remedied.
What does her having eaten ravioli have to do with anything?

Mechanics have a million different makes with a million different models with a million different colors and every year they come out with a million different changes and a million completely new ideas.

Add to that and sometimes the patient just up and dies and you bury them. There are times I wish that would happen to some cars I have worked on, but noooooo, they are "come backs" and you have to fix the damned thing. There is no option for failure no matter how long it takes.

My brother says he tells patients every single day things that will improve their health and rarely do they actually follow his advice.

Maybe I'm just excited to move the clocks forward an hour so I can enjoy the extra hour of sunlight in the evening. Nothing lifts my spirits like Spring time.
I freaking HATE! HATE! HATE! daylight saving time. Set the damned time and leave it be.

I think that the whole world should go by the same clock. Set he global clock to Greenwich Median Time on a 24-hour clock and freaking leave it there forever. These days there are many, many people who work on the "global clock" anyhow. I know dozens of people who have to be at work in the middle of the night so that they can be in a meeting with Singapore or Ireland or somewhere else. If you have a meeting at 21:00, then it is that same damned time all around the globe, the position of the Sun or the moon in the sky be damned. Stay up till its dark if you like and wake up when the sun comes up, regardless of whatever "time" the clock says.

Dad- while it is true that the doctor only has two models to repair, the mechanic does not have to work on the car while it is being driven at 55 mph.
