Nov Fall Back

Many of our members stay up until 2:00 a.m. to change their clocks at exactly the right time. It’s rare we stay up so late.

Facinating topic for Dull Men to discuss: Daylight “Saving” or “Savings” Time?


This is an excerpt from:

Another fascinating topic: areas not using Daylight Saving Time (DST):

*  Not all areas of the U.S. are covered. Most of Arizona does not use it. Here’s an article about this:

*  Other areas not using it are Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

*  Indiana was another until 2006.

More topics for discussion:

•  Effects on our lives from gaining the hour; compare this with losing the hour in the spring.

•  Whether we like DST or prefer that we don’t have it.

Dream job:


DMC assistant vice president Grover Click was in Vienna a few years ago on the day clocks changed. He visited the Uhrenmuseum (clock museum). He took the above photo of a staff member changing a clock. She had 3,000 clocks to change.

It's time to fall back

More info: Wikipedia has a 21-page article about Daylight Saving Time . . . which comes in handy if looking for something dull to read:
