Fall Back

Don't forget all! Go back an hour this coming Sunday! Yipee! 1 more hour to sleep in! Whoo hoo!

How come they don't say "Fall Forward"? When you fall, don't you fall forward and not backward? Or sometimes?

There are those that don't ever change the time too right? Which states don't?

This year is the first year for all of Indiana to change. Up until now only a few counties changed. (boy is there a lot of folks that hate their governor (Mitch Daniels))

I"m glad though. I live right on the border (Mi) and actually work in Indiana so it's nice to stay relative in time for a change.

also as mentioned Arizona and I think Hawaii.

DIYaddict= "How come they don't say "Fall Forward"? When you fall, don't you fall forward and not backward? Or sometimes?"


Remember it this way:

Spring forward.........Fall back.

imagine kids playing hopscotch (springing forward) and playing in a pile of leaves (falling back).

Marksr: Don't you like being told ahead of time? Plan, plan, plan!

Annette: Have you jumped in a pile of leaves? I still go forward. You know in order for me to remember "Fall Back" I have to literally say "Spring forward....oh! ....fall back"? Maybe now I'll never forget.

We have to change our smoke detector batteries too? Guess what we'll all be doing w/that extra hour we had!

mitch17: You could do like me and forget to change some clocks forward in the Spring so when Fall comes you don't have to change it back. Ever done that? Good thing we don't have to change the time on our computer too!

[QUOTE=Annette(she's looks just like her avatar[/QUOTE]


The avatar pic looks mighty young to have a son



I know it's in a women's DNA to lie about her age but......
When I met my wife she was 3 yrs older than me, a few years ago she claimed to be 3 yrs younger than me her oldest son said at the rate she was going it wouldn't be long before he was as old as her

So... where's the punchline???

So now you know...I'm just a blondy on the inside!

What age do women start lying about their age? Curious...
(I do look too young to have a son. People think he's my brother sometimes... it's embarrassing for him.) Good for me...bad for him. Or maybe bad for me too b/c I don't know what age they actually think I am to have had him!

I believe an employer is obligated to pay for time worked, not the difference in what the clock says when you finish versus when you start. It's a nine hour night instead of eight and I think you're supposed to get paid for nine.

I asked this same question at the hospital I work at and all staff working the time change automatically get paid the extra hour.

I like this DST because of the sleep...I don't like it because for the next 6 months, my car radio clock is an hour ahead. I just leave it... I can't figure it out.

Geez, Rapture, how old are you? Does the clock on your VCR blink 12:00 all the time?

What's a VCR? Geez...I haven't had one of those for at least 6 years.

I can never remember how to change the radio time. My wife's car is simple to change. My car....can't remember.

Alright... couldn't take anymore abuse. I changed my clock time. Only after hitting a special calculated order of buttons, pressing the gas, calling my wife and quickly hanging up (seems strange, but that's what the car said to do) and finally barking like a dog....doberman blend...I've got it. It's still five minutes ahead, but that's ok.

My VCR was similar to operate...if I recall.

Women begin lying about their age once they pass 39. As a general rule. Exceptions do exist but rarely in my prior experiences. How about yours?

That's why women never or rarely ever, admit being more than 39.

I have rarely met any female whom has ever admitted to being more than 39 when asked by anyone. Have you ever asked age of an acquaintance lady?

I rarely ask, mind ya. Why bother. I already know the answer...LOL!

Something magic about 39....(???)

Therefore, if it is acceptable for females never pass 39, then it is perfectly ok for males to never pass 49. Hence, no men ever needs to admit to being any more then 49!....

Using my own age rule, I have been 49 for the past several years and will be 49 forever.....

BTW:
The above, as it relates to age, is NOT effected by time zones nor clock times either...LMAO! My preference for time is "Spring Ahead." I hate falling back-wards. Or even going "Back-wards." Unless I am at the "Helm" of a sea vessel.

I do believe you're thinking of Jack Benny, who was forever 39, and was, btw, a man.

I thought it was age 39 that Jack Benny was forever. I suspect the majority of the members here are too young to remember his show

My grandmother had an interesting trick. Every year on her birthday, she would deduct a year from her age. I always wondered what she would do when she hit 0 again.

Had a neighbor when I was growing up who had a different philosophy - she'd tell you how old she was, but not what she weighed.

I know a lady preacher like that, nice looking woman [even for someone 10 yrs younger] but she's more than a few lbs overweight.

I think my wife's philosophy is however young she can convince whoever, that she is
