For those of you who experience the time change, does it work for you or does it mess you up? It plays havoc with the poor animals who don't understand having to wait longer for dinner. It messes with the amount of light in my life and makes me sad. It gets dark here at 4:45 pm. It will continue to get dark earlier and earlier until the end of next month. Studies have shown that more heart attacks happen when time change occurs. So, why do we do it? Supposedly it's good for business. Daylight savings time means longer evening hours and therefore more time to shop. If that's the case, why do we switch back to standard time at all? Why not make DST the standard time and be done with it? Thoughts?
