Bill to put Colorado on permanent daylight saving time springs ahead

By Lynn Bartels, The Denver Post
Posted: 03/17/2011 08:16:28 AM MDT



Four days after most Americans lost an hour of sleep by moving their clocks forward one hour, a Colorado Senate committee voted to put the state on daylight saving time year-round.
Sen. Greg Brophy deliberately timed his bill to be heard this week when, he said, he knew people would be cranky about having to adjust their body clocks once again.
"Are you tired? Are your kids' schedules upset? Isn't it crazy we go through this twice a year?" he asked the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. "I think it's time to stop this charade."
The Wray Republican said he likes the idea of staying on daylight saving time because Colorado is an outdoors state and people want more light in the evening instead of in the morning.
"The Broncos will have an extra hour of playing time in the daylight," Brophy added.
"Will they actually win?" Sen. Kevin Grantham, R-Caņon City, asked.
"I can't guarantee that," Brophy said, with a laugh.

I agree the change in this day and age is kind of silly, but I think I would just keep everything on standard time. Otherwise all our sundials will be out :)

I'm holding out for the eternal day promised to those who enter the kingdom of God. There is no night there.

The rest of it is just an inconvenience to be endured until then.

Lucky! I wish they would do that here too...I so hate it. My body (blood sugar) has been a mess all week because of the time change. It takes my body a good week to adjust. My body is used to eating at certain times, going to sleep and waking at certain times and this just throws everything off big time for me. It seems each time change is harder and harder to adjust too also. :( Why did they start doing this in the first place..I so hate it.

We could just catch some chickens in Ewa Beach and bury their freshly laid eggs in the ground for a few weeks. That way our eggs will have a more "aromatic" flavor to them for the egging contest. Come on, bring it on!! Auright!! :lol:
