Aw this changing the clocks is a load of crap. The rest of Europe gets away with not doing it.
Nae wonder the Europeans think we are daft. Bend over backwards for the fermers. Give them loads in grants etc just to keep empty fields, and muck about with clocks on the pretence that they might go do some work with an extra hour of light in the morning. Smile

Aye I'm a sceptic.

Naw they dinnae.
At least no' back in the day when I was resident in Dortmund or when visiting sister in law in Denmark.Wink
A quickie on Google gives:
The EU version of Daylight Saving Time runs from the last Sunday in March through the last Sunday in October. Iceland observes the Western European time zone year round, and does not change its clocks for Daylight Saving Time.

Farmfoods also observe the Western European time zone as well.

They used to be pirates if that's the way they spoke.

It's that time again.
Into your profile folks and change GMT to GMT+1.
God only knows where we'll be by the time it comes to changing it back at the end of October! Wink

Just a wee reminder to go into your profile and change the time down at the bottom back to GMT. Wink

Beating Embow to it for once....

Please remember the clocks go forward next weekend. Instead of the usual one hour, this time, about four months should do it....

Spile sport!😄
Only one way to recover from this major disappointment and that's a win down in Dumfries.😎
