    I actually saw cable, computer and my cell all change! It was 2:55AM and I just got up thinking why hasn't the time changed and the cable menu said as future programing ~ 1:30 3:00 3:30.

    So I figured that the clocks must change when it turns 2AM. Pretty smart on my part, dontcha think?

    Admit it. :D

    Sure enough I was holding my cell and watching the TV, my computer at they all popped to 3AM.

    Which really isn't funny ~ I lost an hour of my life in 5 minutes!

    We used to change the first Sunday in April and last in October but a few years ago the powers that get to decide these things extended it so we start earlier. I only have to change one clock and my watches everything else is automatic even my bedside clock. Oh crap! I need to remember how to change it in the car

    I always forget the thermostat so the furnace doesn't start till I'm going to work.

    This must drive the airlines crazy. I travel to the US a lot and I always try to avoid travelling during 'this period' - between when the clocks have gone forward in the US but not yet in the UK. All the international connections are shot to pieces.

    Several years ago - either by chance or someone doing it sensibly (seems unlikely :) - the move forward was synchronised in the US and UK. How much easier it made life.

    Surely, somewhere ?? - there's an international committee (UN?) that decides these things - is there a fundamental reasons why this change can't be synchronised? It's probably something I don't understand about latitude or longitude or the angle of the sun or global warming......

    Just to complicate matters, there's a move in the UK to move two hours forward in summer...
