    Its not the clock changing. I have a sleep disorder, and its hell for me to readjust my body to wake up an hour earlier in the spring. Im late for work two days a week for a month every spring. Luckily my boss understands.

    Oh, I don't doubt it, which is why I have never said--or even thought--that I've had things tougher than the military. It's also one big reason why those who serve and have served have earned my utmost respect. !pride

    It's halftime in the Giants-Steelers game, and so decided to rake the leaves, because the town vacuum truck comes by tomorrow, but I see that it is pitch black out. Too bad.

    And for those with no clocks, no problem.

    That I can understand. But earlier in the thread there was a bunch of clock setting complaints. I much prefer the extra daylight in the evening, but not at the expense of it being dark still at 7:00 in the morning.

    That's bizarre.

    Sometimes if my kids are sick, I might be up with them until 3 or 4 in the morning, but I still get up on time.

    Even when I traveled from Coast to Coast every week and had frequent time changes, I could still manage to get up when my alarm went off.

    What happens when your alarm goes off that you can't get up?

    Back during WW2, we had "War Time", which was year 'round DST, so it was quite common to go to work/school in the dark or come home during the dark. It was in effect from February, 1942 until September, 1945

    I dont hear it. Interestingly, after a month of getting up at the same time, I have no problem waking up at the same time, without the alarm. But in the spring when the time changes, I dont wake up.

    They are done studies, and Ive read where heart attacks go up several percentage points above the baseline in the days following the spring time change.

    Now, my VCR is flashing: "11:00", "11:00", "11:00". ;)
