Just as well that Terry decided to not mess with the FT clocks some years ago, it used to cause chaos and we were bombarded with messages about it.

I'm glad he did that, because of the time changes worldwide. Europe's is this weekend, North America two weeks ago, and Australia next weekend...how can anyone keep up with that?

In most of the western European countries the clock has to be moved now. Fortunately I limited the number of clocks in my house - otherwise it would take hours to set them all correct (as almost every clock has a different guideline...)

It isn't funny but a group of schoolchildren were suppose to travel back from France today, they arrived at the ferry in St Malo only to find that their ferry has gone already. France changes its clocks tonight so someone made a big mistake. The poor children will have to remain in France until tomorrow afternoon, missing Mothers Day which is tomorrow. Total chaos.

At least the EU decided to end this nonsense. Can't wait to see the end of all this.
