I don't care which they choose; just pick one and leave it.
I keep my stove clock on 'chicken time'--never changing--so I feed at the same time all year. Animals don't know from daylight savings time.
But sometimes if we have schedules involving humans, it gets confusing.
The last few years I have operated on standard time (no change) unless I have an appointment when I just leave an hour earlier.
This weekend, I make no changes, my house clocks never change as of a few yrs ago.
Well, did you ALL know this?
Daylight saving time, suggested by President Roosevelt, was imposed to conserve fuel, and could be traced back to World War I, when Congress imposed one standard time on the United States to enable the country to better utilize resources, following the European model.
I would choose Daylight Savings Time. One would think it wouldn't matter if you are retired. It does when you live in a high traffic area. By the time traffic clears out for the day here, it would be dark 6 months of the year on Standard time. On DST only 2 or 3 months. I don't like driving after dark.
I thought it was so farm kids could get their chores AND schoolwork in.
I'm not ready to lose an hour, unless it's one of my choosing.
Of course I forgot to change my watch.
When I went out to my parents' mobile home Sunday, I first set the clocks back instead of forward. When I realized it, I went all around and set them forward 2 hours to correct it. Then noticed 1 clock was never set back last fall. It needed to be left alone. Next trip I'll set it back 1 hour (or is it forward?). Oh heck, I'll just match it to the others.
X2. Quit screwing around with people’s clocks.
Our clocks don’t get turned back an hour until April 2 nd
I believe I’ve mentioned this before about the Queensland / New South Wales border , depending on what side of the street you’re on there is a whole Hour difference in time until APRIL

right side of road / street is Queensland ( that refuses to take part in daylight savings time )
