Daylight Savings Time is just something I take for granted. I have never given it much thought -- except to praise the extra hour of sleep in the autumn and curse the lost hour of sleep each spring. However, I have recently become curious.

Why do we adhere to DST? Who decides that it is best for our bodies? Our productivity? Our Circadian sleep rhythms?

It appears there are crazy antedotes about things that happen because of DST.

In any case, please remember to set your clocks FORWARD an hour before you go to bed tonight. And think of me as my alarm clock reads 5:12am on Sunday morning -- but my body tells me it is only 4:12am as the children are jumping on my head.
