Just a 'timely' reminder that 'Summer' ends at 2 a.m. At least we get a longer lie!

For the benefit of FM :-(

I kinda wish the change was on Monday morning. I'm not so fussed about waking up an hour early on a work day!

Not intentionally :)

I think it's time I went to bed for an extra hour - I can't make sense of OTT_B's post @23:03

I was surprised that my new mobile phone changed the time automatically and the old mobile, didn't change even when there was a call, which I thought might reset it. Doesn't matter and of course I can't remember back 6 months to what happened last time but I do find resetting a pain.

Was in a taxi yesterday and the driver said that there was a programme on a new experiment re: changing the time. The theory is to put the clocks forward two hours, now, thn it is light all day, until the really dark patch in December. Apparantly this was tested in the 1970s, so if it was successful, I wonder why it hasn't happened again.
Until I was reading this thread, I hadn't thought much about this again and haven't discussed it with anyone. I wonder if anyone here remembers this happening before, or saw the programme?

Wouldn't it be nice to just stay on BST all the year round and let it darken and lighten slowly at a natural pace...
