Extra Hour in Bed tonight ? Time to put those clocks back One Hour.

What happens once or twice a year, depending on your point of view  ?
Answer....
Clocks go back, or forwards....

BST will officially finish in the early hours of Sunday, October 27, 2013.
Clocks should be put back 60 minutes at 2am as the UK reverts to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
In spring, the clocks don't go forward, losing an hour, until March 30 2014.

Re: What happens once or twice a year ?

No you're wrong thats not what happens.
Once or twice a year the "Do we need to keep changing our clocks" debate comes up, everyone starts uselessly mumbling on about it with their POVs, the event happens and then everyone forgets about it again.
Bonkers. No wonder this country is going downhill, no-one has any drive these days unless they're an MP and corrupt  Crazy

Re: What happens once or twice a year ?

what goes around.... comes around... handy to remember that at times, just a second, I`ll need a minute to get used to that idea, but it could be the finest hour if you clock it, but of course, it could be a wind up, let`s face it, there`s no need to be alarmed if this goes off topic  Roll eyes

Re: What happens once or twice a year ?

I was going to see if I could go on about it, all day, but that would have been a 24 hour job, and as one day leads to the next, the night would be drawing in, giving shorter days, until they dragged on for a week or two, and that would have been a fortnight, during the time elapsed, however, the months soon take over and the seasons change, from autumn, into winter, before you know it, christmas time is on the doorstep soon to be followed by the bells ringing in the  new year, and then springs into the next quarter of the year, when the clocks have to be changed again, in time for the new summer...

trouble is... it all takes time, and at my age, there isn`t much time left...  Roll eyes
