Did we all remember to alter our clocks? by bsh1878 on 29 March 2005 4:01pm
 
Did we all remember to alter our clocks on Saturday. I was just thinking that wouldn't it be funny if we all forgot to alter our clocks? The world would go to pieces!

I suppose if everyone forgot, then the world would just carry on as normal! Just the odd one or two people who remembered would get very confused!!

How many clocks do you have? We have way too many. We have clocks on our frig, coffee maker, microwave, oven, DVD player, VCR, telephone answering machine, and television. We don't use any of them, really. It must be a fad with the manufacturer. Whenever we have a time change or a power failure, it takes quite awhile to remember how reset them all. What a pain.

It's about time!

Yes, Europe is one week ahead of Canada and the US in implementing Daylight Saving Time. It has an amazing history. A good way to start a fight is to ask, who invented it? All in all, it seems like a great idea, but many oppose it, like Mexico, which is not surprising.

Got to run now! I have to reset the clock on my fax machine.
