Yeah, I remember the article mentioning the kids having to go to school in the dark. And, I can see how that might be troublesome... especially nowadays when parents personally chauffeur their kids back and forth to school. Remembering my own childhood, I can totally get on board with the little snits being chauffeured to school in an air conditioned SUV while playing games on their iPad all the way.

 

But seriously... yeah, I can see how DST could be a problem.

Ours was a week or two ago, and... low and behold, the Senate has passed a bill making Daylight Savings Time permanent... starting in a year or two :wacko:. Of course the bill still has to pass the House of Representatives and be signed by the President to become law. 

 

There was also a news item that appeared after the Senate passed the DST bill stating that this had already be tried back in the seventies.... I seriously do not remember any such thing happening! :wacko: Anyway, the article said that it was a total failure and soon reversed.

Ron, I may offer some insight into that...maybe.  I ''kinda'' remember that, or a debate relating to it, seems the biggest hitch had to do with school kids having to tread to bus-stops in the dark while adults were scrambling to work, (in the dark) causing safety issues for the kids.  That was when the kids had to walk a block or two to get their bus, these days the bus stops at each house it seems.

One clock at home in the kitchen, not needed to change because I delayed since the last change of hour and now is in correct time. :lol:

I have a clock like that in my office. It's in a difficult place to reach so it stays perpetually on DST. :rolleyes:

We changed a few weeks ago... but I forgot to change my cameras, so thanks for the bump, Peter.
