     As we all know, daylight savings time begins this weekend. Yeah, a lot of folks will bitch and gripe about losing the hour of sleep and yadda, yadda, yadda. OR you can look at it this way. You will be an hour younger. I prefer the latter as at my age, I need all the help I can get! Just saying…

John - I like the idea, but four months ago we aged an extra hour.

Hi John, thanks for sharing Micheal's post, I always love this spring change, it is like a gift having that extra hour to work in the afternoons.

How clever you are!  I never thought about the hour younger aspect of Daylight Savings  Time.  I whine quietly to myself about losing the hour of sleep.  I'll also remember Bob Crane's comment about the extra hour of work in daylight.

 Good morning John. Thanks for the reblog on this silly post. I heard a lot of people griping about the time change yesterday. This was the best my subconscious could come up with.

I'm really looking forward to Daylight savings time as it will be much easier to do evening appts.  It will still be light when looking for the numbers on the houses and when my customers want to see the samples.

John, I so like daylight savings time that I would never complain about losing an hours sleep.

But this idea about being an hout "younger" just makes no sense to me. If anything, you just lost an hour you will never see again, unless you consider that you can live the same hour twice when daylight savings time ends this fall-winter.

There is a lighter side?  I had never considered this effect that daylight saving will have!  If this works, I  think I want to skip a whole month or year to make me look younger!
