I think it will be a few weeks before we see any change, just waiting for the wind to drop so I can go and get some stick time.

I've just been outside here in N. Norfolk and it's really quite warm out there, almost as though spring has arrived. However I well remember 1963 when you needed a pick axe to dig carrots out of the ground.

Malcolm. Did you really need to eat those carrots so badly? frown

I too remember 1963 very well. Not nice. sad

Thankfully, nationwide, we haven't seen the likes since. Don't think I want to again either.

Sounds as though Santa will not need deicing in N Norfolk this year though!!

But that's good (for me at least.) Sunset has been getting later for the past week - though not by very much yet!

What I would like to know is why Daylight Savings time is so displaced..

We put the clocks back on the last Sunday in October - this was only 61 days to the shortest day but we have to wait 98 days following the shortest day into Spring before the clocks go forward (March 29 2015) to sensible time and we get evening flying back..

Sunset on the last day of BST 2014 was 17:47 (London) and the first day of BST 2015 sunset will be 19:28.

We are being robbed.. Blame the European Parliament.

Bah Humbug

Just when is the stupidity of fiddling around with the clocks going to come to an end? IMHO choose BST and stick to that. There's only so much daylight available at any particular time of year, so I'm baffled at the arguments of those in favour, especially as we have access to the wonder of electric lights in our homes and work places, in our streets (up to midnight at least) and on cars etc etc.

I have horses along with pigs, a multitude of free range chickens and turkeys etc. try explaining to all of them why their feed is now arriving at a new time! The change of clocks is a nightmare for them all and us that have to look after them, nature does not have a digital clock it had as it says a natural one. Let's be more in tune with the real world and stop this clock changing nonsense.....rant over....phew!

No, It's twice as big as it needs to be.,.........................

 

And......if you all feel better for believing an incorrect statement on daylight length, please don't tune in during the next election, it'll be bad for your heart.unlove

 

Tee Hee...............................wink
