    Default Daylight Savings reminder

    With all things happening around I nearly forgot we are moving our clocks 1 hour forward this Sunday at 2:00am.

    Australians (except Victorians) will be able to spend more time outside enjoying sunny spring weather.

    I won't have to change my watch, I haven't set it back when daylight savings ended. Just knew it was an hour forward so didn't worry. I'm literally ahead of the times!

    Bwahahaah! That made me laugh.
    True but sad.

    Come to think of it, IS Victoria still part of Oz or has Andrews or the Chicoms taken it over and declared it a Foreign Country now? I don't think too many other Aussies would care much if they did. Probably be a lot less financial Burden on the rest of us over the coming decade.

    My God! What are these people thinking?? May as well play Russian roulette with 5 loaded chambers!!



    Would be laughable if it wasn't such an overthrow of our rights and freedoms.

    Maybe Chairman Dan should just put the clocks FORWARD another hour or 3 so people won't have as much daylight to go out in summer?

    The video is telling one story. Victorians just had enough of the current situation and restrictions. When we had first wave with numbers like today we had pretty much everything open like the rest of the country. It makes me very angry when Dan Hitler and Brett Satan talks about opening too soon risking the third wave. Common knuckleheads, the second wave wouldn't happen if they did the job right like the rest of the country governments and Victorians could be able to enjoy natural sunlight.
    This is a simple logic and people just can't hold anymore.

    P.S. Thought about the day light saving a bit more. I am happy to do it as it means 1 hour sooner we'll see the end of this 2020. That means 1 hour sooner I will see Dictator Dan resignation - my prediction is coming January we will see a different labor leader.

    What makes you think January or do you mean New year January?

    I think most Victorians would have have their Christmas present if he left before then. I can't believe the twerp is still there Now!

    My late mum (lived in Fremantle) loved DS. She said after it was scrapped "That's what happens when the truly thick get to vote!"
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Got up this morning and my watch is now correct.
    I'd be happy to have Daylight savings all year round.

    I have at least 20 clocks/timers to set.
    I have two that run backwards that I always leave on summer time.
    The anniversary clock is currently showing 10:40, I will just leave it at that. Some time it in the next 100 days it will show the correct time by itself (for a couple of hours).

    Bloody birds have been driving me nuts at 05:00, now at least it will be 06:00 so an hour more sleep.
    The hour more light in the evening is very welcome of course, I hate Winter time, which I have probably posted here every year.
    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots.

    was thinking this afternoon, That should be looked on Favourably in the modern age. |It would mean we all got extra Kw's Of power from solar power.
    The green motivated would be right behind more free renewable energy that's for sure!

    Funny though, I noticed I made within 2Kwh of solar generation today in comparison to what I did yesterday.
    With my setup, I would have expected more like 13 Kwh extra given the " Extra" hour of daylight.

    My Pup wasn't fooled. She comes the same time every day for her afternoon play. 4 Pm standard time, 5Pm daylight savings. She is accurate to 10 min as well regardless of the weather.

    Yeah, but they're also technically challenged and can't reset the time on their watches either.

    Wot, dogs wearing watches? I hear you say.... Mines a watch dog....
