1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Gawd!

So many clocks, timers, watches, gadgets ..........................

What is needed is a common time-server for the house (and cars!)

Either that or I'll just soothe myself with playing "Dark Side Of The Moon" yet again.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Personally I'd prefer the Pick & Stick method (no, not scraping bogies from your nose and sticking them on someone's back!!), as in, pick a time zone and stick to it, we don't need to keep switching back and forth in this 24 hour business age, preferably sticking with Greenwich Mean Time, seeing how the meridian line goes through Greenwich and has been our timezone since time was standardised... :-nuts

I have previously thought of just having TivuTime, but I suspect I'd be either far too early or far too late for catching our holiday flights!

But we have just had Kippers & Scrambled Eggs for brekkie, so nerr.

So an hour less to get rid of the smell of the kippers before you go to bed then

I think we should scrap all this BST/GMT nonsense and stick with GMT

Didn`t Wales want their own time zone once upon a few years back?

My mates dad runs in his own time zone, it`s called ImmyTime, if he says 2 minutes, expect to wait 15, and if he says 10 minutes you`ll be waiting a good 2 hours :-lmao
Now if he was to say I`m going for milk you`d be waiting for years pmsl

My own liking is for BST, i prefer the later nights. These light mornings play havoc waking me, not to mention the cat who springs into life at the 1st hint of sunlight.
