No need to apologize at all. I agree with you.

Didn't we stay on DST back in the 70s during the energy crisis because they said that it would save on electricity?

Just another piece of government cow patty. It made less than a 1% difference apparently.

Wow, I did not think time was so important in a retirement community.

Does anyone really know what time it is? Does anyone really care?

Nature does regulate the amount of daylight we get. The time of day does not change that. If everybody across the world got the time they wanted we would be back in history. Best thing is to get used to it and as a retirement community we should be more capable of adjusting than most.

I usually know what time it is; it's what day it is that stumps me.

You'd think so, wouldn't you? But I find the older we get, the more resistant to change we become.
Most of us want TV to stop expanding, because now that we have our dream homes, TV should stop building.
I find it heartening that a six-year member thinks we should be more capable of adjusting than most. Good thought.

I love Daylight Savings time. I really wish we had it year round. I love the longer evenings!
I find the winter so dreary when it gets dark at 4:30 in the afternoon. It does save energy too. No need for lights until much later in the evening.
To each his own....but I would love it year round!!

Dotti - what you are wishing for is what the FL legislature is considering.

Florida

The "Sunshine Protection Act" has made a comeback in the Florida State Senate, where Democratic Sen. Darren Soto is making his push once again despite saying he doesn't think the measure will pass this year. The bill would put Florida on daylight saving time year-round, and Soto is more hopeful of its 2016 prospects.

"Theres no house companion this year, I only filed it again because its been very popular. It was the second most reviewed bill on the Florida Senate website last year," Soto said, WFSU reported.

I'm with you ............ I love this time of the year because I like to walk when it is still quite dark, but the sky is getting lighter, walk along thinking my thoughts and sorting out my day. There was a piece in the paper last year about a woman who walks at 1:00am, she walks 8 miles in the middle of the night!

I don't care if we have DST or regular time, but just would like it to stay that way year around.
