    My bedroom clocks never go off of DST! I do more by the sun's hours than a clock anyway, so just leave some of the clocks alone.

    Thanks for the reminder though!

    It's such a crock that the time even has to be changed from DST.

    At least Arizona has it right, they are exempt from DST. If their hot weather is the legitimate reason for it, then I hope TX will jump on board too. FG can tell you it gets mighty hot here too. Maybe not as hot as AZ or consistently, but hot enough.

    I stopped my grandfather clock at 11:55PM for his AM restart. Both my Casio "Tough Solar's" will change themselves. Take that Rolex fans, yours won't do that!

    Another and possibly more important change are the batteries in all the smoke detectors in the Universe! Wouldn't want anyone to become "late" as a result of smoke! I'm also a stockholder in Duracell.

    I wish it was DST year round! I hate winter and having it get dark around 4:30 PM is depressing.

    I won't buy a clock unless it sets itself from the NIST atomic clock in the People's Republic of Boulder, Colorado.

    OK, here's how I make the transition easier, and if your schedule allows it, give it a try. I set my clocks after I get up instead of before I go to bed. Doing so gives my decrepit body's clock a gentler transition from DST to Standard and back again.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Maybe, but I MUCH prefer Daylight Savings Time. I like having a little daylight left at the end of the day to accomplish things. If I had my choice, we'd stay on DST!!!!

    As far as transition....I begin shifting feeding times for critters, etc., about 2 weeks before the clocks change. Allows a smoother transition for them and me!

    (I try that going off of DST, but if you are an early riser, it is harder to "sleep in" and make your own body adjust.)

    Gizmo: Yes, this is acceptable, in fact according to mjncad, it is preferable.

    mjncad: Thanks for this info. Some of "us" in the east are a bit slow picking up on things, unless our wives tell us.

    I prefer it too, but I hated for the kids to have to wait for the school bus in the dark.
