I did – and I don’t even feel jet lagged (I expect that will change.)

This is one of the very few things Nameless and I disagree on. I consider it well worth the effort, and am more inconvenienced by standard time.

I don't feel cheated by the change in time, though I do prefer standard time.
When we lived in Arizona, we didn't have to spring forward, as they don't have it there.
Some Nations do in AZ do though.

I did. It has never really bothered me. Being, perhaps on purpose, done on a transit from Saturday night, into a Sunday morning, I get my usual compliment of sleep.

Yes without any problems here. This is the time I like, since it stays lighter later. We voted here in California that we wanted it to be permanent. Hope they do go that way.
Thanks TomCat

I started "sproinging" Saturday afternoon, pretending I was eating a late lunch, having dinner around 5, then going to bed an hour early. I can definitely do without the blasted time changing! More and more people have been calling for DST to end once and for all. First responders know the detrimental effects all too well - increased heart attacks, more accidents during the first morning rush hour after we spring forward.

I was totally sprung like an over wound clock! (See picture at Politics Plus)

When I awoke, I knew I was late for church so I did not go. But when I checked my computer, . . . well, I’m sure you can guess the rest. I would not have just 15 minutes late for church, I would have been 1 hour and 15 minutes late! What a way to make an entrance . . . as everybody is leaving the church! Good thing I did not have any extra duties at church today.

I did.  I love DST.  I wish we had it all year long.

Queensland doesn’t have DST, as most of the state is in the (sub)tropics. That’s one annoyance less, but some other states do switch to DST, which means that neighbouring New South Wales will turn back the clock on April 7 to winter time, but my friends and family in The Netherlands will sproing on March 31, while you, my American friends, have just sproinged.

As global citizens who Skype a lot with people all over the world, these different DST beginnings and ends on top of the different time zones are driving hubby and me mad.

Been sproinged my whole life, from Ohio to Michigan and now the Pacific Coast. Never did care for being sproinged, 'cause the short days in December get pretty depressing. I'd like to be sproinged back for a chance to get home after work before nighttime. I voted to stop this switch the clock spring-thing, and with a little luck, we'll keep the hands steady in the Fall. DST is preferable, by all means. What was once a good thing for cultivation and harvesting, is no longer so beneficial. Please stop sproinging me in 2020.
May the sun shine long
without further a sproing,
Thanks for the time, TC.
