DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
Doyle Rice, USA TODAY
Love it or hate it, here it comes
Just like allergies, college basketball and mud, another rite of spring is upon us: The start of Daylight Saving Time, which begins at 2 a.m. Sunday.
At that moment (or the night before), the few analog clocks still around need to “spring forward” an hour, turning 1:59:59 a.m. into 3 a.m. Since most of our computers, phones and DVRs do it automatically, it’s not as much of a chore as it used to be.
Starting Sunday, one hour of daylight is switched from morning to evening. We don’t go back to Standard Time until Sunday, Nov. 6.

~Daylight Saving: Time To Spring Forward~
~Published on Mar 9, 2012~
Time again to begrudgingly give up an hour of sleep on Sunday.
Why in the world do we do this?
Blame the Germans, who started the trend of daylight saving time during World War I to conserve coal.
But the idea is much older?
Ancient Romans used a water clock that varied at different times of year depending on the season and available light.
People adjust fairly easy when travelling time zones, but experts say daylight saving time can be more difficult, because it works against our internal body clocks and how we react to more or less light during seasonal changes.
There are some things we can do to minimize this man-made disruption, like getting some early morning sun rays on Saturday and Sunday, avoiding evening sunlight on Sunday and Monday, and taking a low-dose of melatonin over the weekend.
We could even push our bed times up by 10 to 15 minutes this weekend ahead of Sunday morning. Earlier bedtimes during the weekend? Good luck with that, everybody.
We ALL are ONE!!
