I could easily do without the changes. Select one or the other and stay with it globally. As a kid from old farm life, we never used a set time to rise and ... er ... shine. We awoke when dawn arrived so that our waking/sleeping cycle remained constant with respect to the season. For the modern business world, that would not work so well. For me, pick one and stay on it.

I agree. Pick one and stay with it

Lets leave our time zones constant. Daylight Saving (no s) Time was put in place in 1919smile038.gif to save coal. What coal are we saving in 2019?

Actually it was only in effect from 1918 to 1919 to save on energy, it was repealed in 1919, then Roosevelt reintroduced it from Sept.1942 to 1945 calling it "War time", then it became law under Nixon in 1974. 1st as the National Energy Emergency Act followed by National Daylight Saving Act.

@Charlene thank yu for the additional information, very interesting. I didn’t know all that.

@Duckman me either..thank google..here in Mass we've had DST since the 1918 bill..

It should be permanent. I can say that coz I'm in the middle of the USA. I'm sore it affects other areas differently.

It's OK. It;s only borrowed. You well get it back in autumn

Moravian Level 7 Mar 11, 2019

Actually, I thought we just got it back.

@godef you ARE confused!

@godef A good reminder of which way the clock goes is ---- Spring forward and fall back.

No you haven’t taken any of my time. I live in Arizona where we do not spring forward or fall back. Nevada, California and Washington, and parts of Oregon and Idaho are now on Arizona time, aka Mountain Standard Time, or for them Pacific Daylight Time. The rest of the Mountain Standard Time zone is now on Mountain Daylight Time. All y’all are crazy for putting up with that shit.
