Well, daylight saving time stops here tonight and the clocks go back an hour.

I'm not predicting any immediate problems with sun bleached soft furnishings as a consequence.  ;D

So lm not sure whether that is a good thing for me or not. We have a daughter living in London and she has a habit of messenger calling at around 5 or 6 am (Qld time) and waking us up.

That's alright, it's already well and truely light by then, went and layed with my youngest daughter the other night as she was sick, looked at the holes in the blind slats where the string goes through and thought I had left an outside light on. When I got up to check I then realised it was just that it was already light outside at 4:15am

Only southerners, could work on the theory, that if they cut 2 inches off one end of their outdoor table and then clue/screw it to the other end, and then believe, they now have a bigger table.  ???

Lived in Vic for 30 years and then top of Aus for 30.  Loved daylight saving when in Vic.   As I worked outdoors when in Darwin and then all over the place we were allowed to start an hour or hour and a half earlier to beat the heat. Here in Cairns now it is light at 5a.m.  Why the hell the Qld retards dont want daylight saving is beyond me. Everyone that I talk too, that works outside, say they would love it so as to beat some of the hot afternoon sun. Stuff what the city office workers want!  Now North Qld has a reputation of being full of rednecks..I dont agree.  I think much of Qld has em....Common sense...they just dont get it..

Wont be me complaining mate...20 years in the top end and I,m used to it.  Cairns is mild compared to the Territory.  Retired now so daylight savings means stuff all.  Just dont understand how people working outside in a climate that is only getting warmer still dont get a chance to start earlier. We also have the countries highest skin cancer rates.    Anyway the office workers in air-conned buildings will be happy...just a pity that many school kids still dont even have air conditioned buildings...reckon they,d enjoy an earlier start as well..  Thank christ the mexicans are up here..at least it gets the average Queenslanders IQ into double figures.... :angel: :angel: :angel:
