"Down the Drain with Jane"
Wednesday, March 16, 2011 • Posted March 16, 2011

Okay, they did it to us again! Change the clocks! I didn’t get the clock in my car changed from Daylight Savings Time to Cow Time. I didn’t have any repercussions from not changing it. I’d see that I could subtract an hour and all was well. In fact, I didn’t want to change it this time, but I didn’t want to confuse Z!

So, if the clocks had to be changed, then I wanted the "CORRECT TIME!" Z’s cell phone was two minutes behind my cell phone. However, my cell phone time agreed with that of the television and the internet time. Sorry, the banks were not with any of them. One of the times was five minutes off from the other times. So, I went with the three times that agreed with each other.

Does the "Daylight Savings Time" actually save us? Okay, at the end of this time, we get to get our hour back. Thus, we only get back what we gave up. There is absolutely no savings to be had. Sort of like the interest rates these days.

The old timers got up with daylight and went to bed at dark or shortly there after. They got along! And if we are saving any daylight, then show me the interest earned.

P.S. "Does anyone know what time it is? Does anyone CARE?"
