Adjusting your clock

Funny, I didn't hear warnings on the radio or TV to go into the usual "Fall back, Spring ahead" warnings today.

There were wind advisor, flood warnings and a cold front bearing down in the New York metro area..... but no VCR, clock, stove, oven, microwave or watch warnings.

Not until this morning did I understand why...... the clock changes at 2am this morning, not Saturday morning. Regular time arrives shortly and will stay until March 11. Enjoy your beauty sleep!.

Here's something I got through Google off of the NPR site:

This year, Daylight Saving Time began on April 2 and ends at 2 a.m. Oct. 29
* In 2007, Daylight Saving Time begins on March 11 and ends Nov. 4
* In 2008, Daylight Savings Time begins on March 9 and ends on Nov. 2
* In 2009, Daylight Savings Time begins on March 8 and ends on Nov. 1

If it feels like jet lag, it is.... to a mild extent.... and may take about a week to become accustomed to..... but it SHOULD make getting to church easier today. If you tend to lean toward 'blue' during this time of year, as I do, it is suggested to send time in front of a light box..... or a lamp with full spectrum light to compensate for the warming, calming light rays of the sun which are so far away from us in late fall and winter.

Bear something in mind for next Spring, folks. Starting in 2007, Daylight Saving Time will start one month earlier in the spring and extend it one week later in the fall courtesy of Congress passing The Energy Act of 2005 until further notice.

Gee, what next for those crazy kids on the Hill in Washington, DC!?! You just never know.

Wishing you all a good snooze or an early start on the coffee and newspaper routine before your Glorias in the morning! DJ zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
