Don't forget to set your clocks forward an hour. The government is screwing with the time again.

My wife changed all the clocks last night, said there was 15 of them!
How did that happen?

I love me some daylight savings time. I like shifting the available daylight more towards the afternoons as compared to get up time. Sure wish Arkansas would make it permanent like some other states are starting to do... :thumbsup:

Also don't forget to reset your Forum time in your User Control Panel... :yep:

You cant shift daylight :laughsmile: well maybe YOU can. I still think its crazy, how can time even be real if you can change it with the twist of a knob? That said, I only have to work 11 hours instead of 12 this shift, just have 45 minutes left :smiley1639: And if we can have daylight savings time why not old folks savings time, I say we set the calendar back 15 years.

My grandfather kept 2 clocks, one was "God's time" and the other was "Man's time!"
Personally I think we should split the difference one way or the other and make it permanent. I have to wonder, how many people actually get up or sit up until 2 a.m. just to change the time?

My Grandpaw did the same thing, said one clock was for going to church and watching the news on TV, the other was for him.

I prefer Daylight Saving Time, but wish the powers that be would just pick one and stick to it, I hate the switching.

:hesaid: That's exactly how I feel about it. I will say that no matter what the clock says I am up before daylight year round without an alarm. I do wish it would just stay the same instead of the switching. Sort of ridiculous. Gives the government something else to screw with.

I use to be like that twodog and now ten plus years in a row of working nightshift has destroyed my internal clock I don't know if I could ever get it back again. I don't know when I'm up or down anymore. I work 3 eights and 2 twelves, 12s on weekends. On my eights I lay down about 2 in the afternoon, don't fall asleep until about 7 get three hours sleep and get up at 10. Weekends I lay down at 12 fall asleep by three if Im lucky, get three hours and up at 6. I say I get three hours sleep im lucky if I get two, some weekends I get absolutely none I don't know how I am alive. They say driving while sleep deprived is the same as driving with a .1 alcohol blood level, two tenths above legal drunk driving .08 Google Nightshift will kill you, serious bring up Google and in the search bar put "nightshift will kill you" up pops 2 million three hundred and eighty hits, articles that tell you how harmful nightshift is. I use to get a 12% shift diff, like three bucks an hour. They cut it back to a flat $1.25 an hour. Its not worth a buck and a quarter an hour to kill myself. :Zzzz:

Guess I am the odd man out on this. After 30+ years of working swing shift and changing each week it don't phase me. You never know when to sleep , when to eat when working that way. Day shift 6am till 2 pm, afternoon shift 2pm until 10pm then midnights 10pm until 6 am. No lunch breaks you ate when/if you got a chance. Only time you might get two weeks the same shift was to move up or down depending on company wants. I have even worked all 3 shifts in 7 days, those weeks were rough. We tried to get a regular schedule shift but the higher up's said no. Reason was working swing like we did is supposed to take 10 years off your life and that means less pension they had to pay out. Supervision was not exempt even they worked a 21 shift schedule between 4 guys. I guess what the higher ups wanted holds true, talking with a guy that still lives up north and I worked 25 years with he said 90% of the guys we worked with have died.

I been fighting some health issues the past couple years and just had a lot of test ran last week, results were told to me today. Sure hurt my feelings on the SEMO Speck hunt when I had to have help getting into and out of the pit blind. My buddys had told the guide about my issues and he had to make me laugh..Said for a old 71 year old man with a bad heart I sure could still knock them geese out of the sky and hopes he is that good a shot when he reaches my age.

Kidneys are fine however the heart doc wants me to have a automatic Implantable cardiac defibrillator installed ASAP. My heart is running at 10 to 30 percent of normal and with already having two heart attacks he thinks it is a good idea. He said I am at a point I could drop over dead at anytime. I go see the implant doctor on Friday and will go from there. So if I come up missing it's been fun hanging with yall and thanks for letting me visit Arkansas and knock off some snow and blue geese.

This morning was a fiasco for me. We had a power outage over the weekend from what I hear. SO when I got back from lease yesterday I put all clocks on the new time. Woke up on my own this morning and I guess we had a power outage last night also. Every clock was blinking and had a different time with the exception of my one battery operated clock. Phone was dead due to a late night very bad phone call (2nd dead loved one from wreck that occurred Friday night) where I did not get phone back on the charger correctly . I had no idea what time it really was in my mad rush to get to work (which usually doesnt matter what time I get there) because I had a vendor coming in which we are paying a bunch of money to do some work. :poundfloor:
Anyway, I did make it to work very early. LOL
