A poll done by the U.S. Department of Transportation indicated that Americans liked Daylight Saving Time because "there is more light in the evenings / can do more in the evenings."

The idea of daylight saving was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin during his sojourn as an American delegate in Paris in 1784, in an essay, "An Economical Project."

Of course not!! But alot of fresh air always makes me tired. Whenever I'm out all day, I come home and pass out, LOL. Add to that only 4 hours sleep the night before, and I'm really done for!

You can always stay home and watch them go in a circle at Bristol.
