    Me, too. I like the daylight. It truly lifts my spirits when we change the clocks in the spring. Since I work nights I more dread turning the clocks back one hour in the fall. That means my 10 hour work shift suddenly turns into an 11 hour shift. I'm off this weekend so this one won't bother me at all.

    Good question. I know about Daylight Saving Time but not the other one.... :p

    With the shift in Earth's orbit at this time of the year, the "extra" hour of daylight would be there anyway due to the lengthening of the day. And how about those cities edging close to the Arctic Circle? Do they really need another hour of daylight, considering that the sun never completely goes below the horizon? Not to mention the fact that DST can affect one's health:


    Not going on Daylight Saving Time doesn't seem to have an adverse affect on those living in Arizona or Hawaii..........:rolleyes:
