Don't forget to set your clocks ahead ONE HOUR!
Don't you feel sorry for clock shops this weekend . . ?
All their inventory has to be set ahead
(at least the clocks that are running.)

But if you're like the CLOCKMASTER store on South Brentwood, you don't worry about it. "We'd go crazy," they said, "if every clock was set to the same time. Can you imagine someone calling us at noon, and all our cuckoo clocks went off together!!!"

Daylight Saving Time was instituted in the U.S. during World War I as a way to save energy by taking advantage of increased daylight hours between April and October. Since then, Congress passed the Uniform Time Act which has standardized DLT across the U.S. (In 2007, Daylight Saving Time became 4 weeks longer due to the passage of the Energy Policy Act.) And it's caught on world wide . . . Kyrgyzstan is the only country that observes year-round Daylight Savings Time. (Good idea, Kyrgyzstan!)


Hey, how do I set my sun dial ahead one hour?
