I refuse to observe DST. Dumbest idea since the pet rock.

You would like Arizona then. We don't change the clocks here. I think it is the only state that does not participate. We have enough daylight and don't need to save it.

This morning I was sitting in my chair preparing for Sunday School. My wife asked if I had changed the clocks last night.

Who still has clocks that need changing? I did not bad today. We'll see what tomorrow morning feels like.

The only reason we made it to church on time is that MrsCoco had her act together.

With the time change and Spring Break, the church had about half the normal crowd.

Daylights Saving Time may be an unnatural act, but it's politically correct.

My anxiety and depression goes down this time of year. The longer days are helpful.

I think DST is pointless.

I was going ask why so it's cool to hate DST but you've beat me to the punch.

I love it.
