Anyone feel sleepy? I am not made for time zone travelling and it takes me at least a week to get used to the new schedule. Thank got I do not have fixed working hours, the first week I am just half an hour later or half an hour earlier in winter time. Next week I'll probably be on 'old clock time' again. In vacation times, I refuse to travel out of my time zone too.
Does it take you a whole week, just for one hour difference?
For some it never happens. For instance cows. They have a cycle when they need to give a milk and they don't give a sh* about any watch adjustments. Nor within a week nor month. I have heard from the farmers that it does no good for animals.
For the small children/baby's it is also not good.

No it takes me two weeks, not one. Sorry! I cannot help it. The good side of the coin is that I do not need an alarmclock, when I am adjusted to a time, I always wake up before the alarm clock goes off.
I didn't even notice. I was at my girlfriend's place for the weekend, and she doesn't have any clocks in her house. Our phones updated automatically, and when I got back home my housemates and colleagues had changed the clocks in my house and office.
I think it's a pretty stupid concept, but I don't have strong feelings about repealing it.

What latitude are you? I am about 54°. I was about 51° in 1968‑71. At latitudes above about 60° there are such short daylight hours in winter that nothing will make any difference. You get the same effects in north and south latitudes, in one case in December in the other case in June.
About 20 years ago I worked for Unisys in Milton Keynes (in England). I worked in a workshop fixing ATM's and the workshop was right in the centre of the building with no external windows. During the Winter months you could go days without seeing sunlight unless you went outside at lunch time. We used to know if it was raining because the drain pipes ran down through the shop.
It sounds horrible, but it was a fun job.

I can remember when Milton Keynes was a little village; that was long before Unisys were there.

Yes. Even during the weekend or when I have a few days off.
