Maybe it'll just move our biological clocks a bit forward.

What makes it even harder is that I have a choice of either using the 24-hour clock or regular time but even trying to change that is almost ridiculous. I think I will just leave it alone and wear a watch.

I'll have to remember to do exactly nothing, beyond replacing the
batteries in my smoke detectors.

Ron, smoke detectors do not have a clock.

I got screwed up,as I left Saskatchewan to come to Alberta yesterday set all my clocks ahead an hour glad to get back the one I lost going there 22 days ago,I didnt realize the time change was happening that night and now I feel like I have been ripped off an hour.
Alberta is now on Sask. time so I didnt have to change anything.

As Saskatchewan has no daylight saving time they dont tell you this stuff on the radio.

You're listening to the wrong radio stations, I heard it several times on my favourite station, as a sort of mocking comment on how we in Saskatchewan don't have to engage in this foolishness.

You combine pilots are a strange bunch.

Strangely, I've never piloted a combine. Tractors pulling cultivators, discs, harrows, sprayers, rod weeders, and rakes, swathers, balers, yes, and trucks from the quarter ton to the 18-wheeler size, but never a combine. I don't know why.

Thats what my Maramichi buddy I live with calls Saskabush folks.They call him a Newfy though and he's a New Brunswicker.
So he calls them combine pilots.
I try not to get involved in the politics,just keep a low profile and dont make eye contact with anyone.

Ron,Do I have to wear a seatbelt in Sask? I havent yet because no one else is so im wondering,also do they have a distracted driver law?

Productivity would increase and DST would be a unnecessary diversion.

By the way, at our latitudes, the only season when DST would make sense is winter. Where I live, that's October through April.

Furthermore, I find it difficult getting up at 2:00 am to set the clocks ahead. The wife won't do it, and the dog doesn't have an opposable thumb to fiddle with the settings.

Every year you guys set me up on this same one.
I sit up all night, watch my clock and mine does not move.
I think you guys are spoofing me or I must have some kinda dumb clock.
Well what is it??

I've even jumped in stubble, so he could truthfully call me a stubble jumper too.

And yes, the law says you do have to wear a seat belt in Saskatchewan, and you can't use a cell phone while driving except with hands-free attachments.

Every year huh? Don't worry, next year you'll catch it moving for sure.

Yes, every year they say, wait for it to spring ahead, so I do. Have you actually seen a clock spring ahead?

Nope. But I have caught a few as they've fallen back. I'm fond of my clocks.

Well this clock is an old electric type, bought in the 70's and still works. It just don't spring is all. Must be those new clocks they have out now that do that.

Could be. Many of mine change when I'm asleep. I just assumed Clock Fairy. Seems reasonable, no?

Now I know. The tooth Fairy never came when you were awake. You are a genius.

I wouldn't mind gaining time, but this losing time every spring sucks.

Yeah but the fall is cool. There's nothing like opening your eyes that morning and realizing you can stay in bed for another hour.

Yep. Still it seems a bit useless to do the time change nonsense, though.

It does, it was such a drag yesterday morning when I realized that I forgot to change the clocks, as I always do. Good thing it's on a Sunday.

We got that work week thing fixed. Some calenders have Saturday & Sunday at the end of the week. Many government calenders are set up this way too.

You should change the smoke detector batteries twice a year. Many fire departments provide free smoke detector batteries.

Had the odd one poke a hole in the far wall. Does that count?

Damn, I just put out $7 for a 9 volt battery. Checked the detector in the basement, no battery in it, guess I hadn't checked it since we moved in here 21/2 years ago. LOL

To test their batteries, Henry takes a burning newspaper and holds it under the smoke detectors His wife complains about the scorch marks in their carpets, but Henry replies, "We can't risk dead batteries."
