It sneaked up on me this time. I had been up for a while this morning doing my routine on the computer when I looked down in the lower right corner and saw the time. I knew it couldn't be right, it's still dark out and my wall clock says it's 6am, not 7am like the computer shows. I start trying to adjust the time before I notice what happened. :| I looked at the calendar just to get confirmation from something actually on paper. I'm a little mistrustful of electronics.

it was all invented by asshats like Al Gore, and totally useless....
rumors were floating that Texas and Oklahoma were going to lock in one time forever like Arizona does.... it is the most stupid thing the asshats came up with.

Not to defend Algore but DST was first suggested by Ben Franklin. It was first implemented in the US in WW1.

DST is like having a blanket that is too short - so you cut a foot off the bottom and sew it onto the top...

How many changed the batteries in the smoke detector like we're supposed to?

never have yet....
we are in our RV for a month now, on vacation.


the Carbon Monoxide detector is laying on the counter, waiting on new energy sources to be applied.... it never got done last year....
we are using electric heat, quit using the Propane furnace because we woke up freezing our butts off a couple nights ago, and instantly released what a dumb thing to be doing....


burning up precious Propane which is needed for the freezer and fridge....
when all we need to is turn on a tiny little electric heater....
so, the trip to the Coop to get more propane, also found us at Wally World and we bought our 3rd Ceramic heater.... 750W and 1500W capability.


this little heater will never be allowed to see the outside of the RV, ever.... what a PITA... took it out last year to use in the house.... :crying2:

Florida voted to stay on DST. It actually takes an act of congress for florida to stay on DST as it will create a new time zone. So much for the will of the people.

I read it on the Internet, so it has to be true...


that DST is going to be the main staple year around now.

So, what's the point of it? That makes so much less sense than just doing away with it.

Well this can get confusing when you try to call people in the U.S. Arizona stays with standard time, Florida gets DST cause the boobs in DC think its a good idea. They need to pick one and everyone uses it.

They are not boobs in DC, boobs have a real purpose while those that inhabit DC have no purpose.... just sayin....
