daylight saving starts in many parts of Australia

Daylight saving

Just a gentle reminder, the daylight saving starts earlier this year. People in New South Wales (NSW), ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania will have one less hour of sleep tonight. The clock will move forward to 3am at 2am. This is the the first time that NSW, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania will be starting the daylight saving contemporaneously (hope that I spelled the word correctly. Sorry Don, I don't speak English). In the past years, it was only Tasmania starting the daylight saving on the first Sunday in October, and NSW, ACT, Victoria, and South Australia would start on the last Sunday in October.

In December 2006, Western Australia started a three years trial of daylight saving. Some liked daylight saving, some didn't. Western Australia will start the last of the three-year daylight saving trial on 26 October (the last Sunday).

Queensland and Northern Territory do not observe daylight saving.

The daylight saving should end on the first Sunday in April 2009 (same as what Tasmania has been doing) for NSW, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

In the high class Remote Village, there's no need to worry about the daylight saving. All high class chickens in the Remote Village adjust the daylight saving automatically.

Don't forget the forward your clock(s) by one hour. The coming Monday is Labour Day public in NSW, ACT and South Australia.

I hate daylight saving, stays darker in the mornings and it's light until 9PM !!Also I have many clocks to change which I have to do now before bed.
Everyone works longer hours just to keep a roof over their head these days and service their massive debts, so no one is rushing to the beach to enjoy the extra daylight!!
And the worst thing is that it upsets the chickens!
It's a dangerous time in the remote village during the first few weeks of daylight savings.
Even Donkey Express has been known to be an hour early or an hour late because of the confusion!

I am glad to report that my Macs all adjusted themselves correctly, so are my iPhone 3G and iPod. My PS3 or Wii do not adjust themselves automatically.
Donkey Express does not have a record of being on time to start with. They just like the changing of daylight saving to give them excuses.
Chickens love daylight saving as they can get fed an hour earlier.
