    standard time Capitalize Eastern Standard Time, Pacific Standard Time, etc., but lowercase standard time when standing alone.

    daylight saving time Not savings. No hyphen.

    When linking the term with the name of a time zone, use only the word daylight: Eastern Daylight Time, Pacific Daylight Time, etc.
    Lowercase daylight saving time in all uses and daylight time whenever it stands alone.
    A federal law specifies that daylight time applies from 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March until 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November in areas that do not specifically exempt themselves.

    JD says if you're early for everything today, you may have missed the memo.


    (This is the first one in a long time that snuck up on me. If I hadn't caught it, I might have been an hour early for my first day on the job tomorrow. Not that it would have been a bad move ...)

    Dog's bowels are still on standard time.

    So much for that extra hour of sleep.

    There's a lot of that going around, apparently.

    Sad day. I'm the biggest DST fan on the board. Darkness before 6 p.m. sucks.
