What are some Spring 2012 fashion trends to look forward to?
Spring 2012 Trends:
1. Pastels - staying along the lines of a soft and feminine look (lace&ruffles)
2. Basket Weave Clutches - sleek and trim, the fresh new look of wicker
3. Pleated Skirts-lady like and easy to go to piece
4. Peplum -(short over skirt or ruffle attached to piece of clothing) embrace hourglass shape.
5. Colors: Tangerine and Purple
The "spirng forward" that I know of is the rule for daylight savings: spring forward, fall back. In the spring, we set clocks forward an hour, and in the fall, we set them back. Could the person have been referrint to dayligh savings?
Senior Citizens: What do you look forward to, with spring, this year?
The absolutely exhilarating, leaping emotions of the first breath of spring....the sunshine, warm breeze, open the doors, windows, watch the daffodils and my purple velvet irises in full bloom.
I get a natural high in the spring. Bring it on, please.
Do you like to fall back, or spring forward with the time? Which is better for you, and why?
Generally the fall back is better, because that gives one an extra hour on Sunday morning to sleep in, as opposed to spring forward, where one is robbed of an hour. and also it is easier to on the Monday following to get up for work an hour later than it is to get up an hour earlier.
When do we change our clocks this year, from spring forward to fall back?
On November 1, 2009 at 2:00 AM Day Light Savings Time ends. (i.e we set our clocks back one hour: so you will set your clock to 1:00 AM)
On March 14, 2010 at 2:00 AM Day Lights Savings Time starts. (i.e we set our clocks forward one hour: so you will set your clock to 3:00 AM)
Note: This excludes Hawaii and Arizona.
Spring Forward, Fall Back? Why Do The Clocks Change at Certain Times Of The Year?
Well it is considered daylight savings in the summer, because the days are generally longer, they spring the time forward in the spring so when most people get home from work it is already light out and they don't have to turn many lights on. In North America this year we changed the clocks forward about a month early. The main benefit to this is in the spring and fall. In summer with daylight savings the sun doesn't set until like 11pm, but without day light savings it would be light out at 3 in the morning, so it's a trade off.
2am tonight basically because tomorrow will be sunday. 2am the next night would be 2am monday.
you don't have to stay up til 2am, just change them before you go to bed and it'll be all set. Are you really gonna need to know the time while you're sleeping?
Seniors, what is your reason for looking forward to spring/summer?
I just got all excited reading everyone's answer.
I look forward to not having to pay the oil man $600 to fill my old tank.
I get out more often when the weather is warmer and I love picking out my hanging flower baskets. I love the smell of grass clippings and look forward to sitting on my new enlarged deck.
Time Change: "Spring Forward" Anyone think it is unnecessary?
Paranoid answer: it is because the man wants to keep us down by continually changing the time every 6 months, our circadian rhythms are jacked up, so we are too tired to better ourselves through eating better, exercising, and maybe going back to school to get better degrees and a better education.
Non-paranoid answer: it is so that we have extra daylight time at the end of the day to spend outdoors with our families exercising so we can burn more calories and be healthier, fitter, and happier.
Am I the only one thats looking forward to Spring Training?
No, you are not the only one. I've been counting the days to Spring Training for weeks now. It's a great time for baseball fans, not only do we get to follow our teams again, but it's great to see the old faces in new places. After a long winter of snow and ice, it's great to see reports from Florida and to see major league players getting ready for the start of the 2011 season.
When did scientists discover we needed to spring forward and fall back 1 hour.?
Nobody "discovered" you have to have daylight savings time. You simply decide you want to alter the clock so that
you have more daylight in the evening and less in the morning. It was a legislative thing. But you are not getting anything from nature that isn;t already there. And farmers were not affected by it either. They've always got up with the sun and gone back in when it got dark.
During WWII people started to realize that we could
conserve electricity by altering the day to take advantage
of daylight in the evening. The business community was
great proponent also, since most people do shopping
after work rather than in the morning and they do more
shopping in daylight than in the dark.
One year they experimented with staying on daylight
savings time. But it was dark so late in the morning, when
kids were going back to school, that it was considered
too dangerous for kids with regard to traffic.
So he we are.
The time change - fall backward, spring forward - really worth it?
I don't like the time change to be honest, but it's supposed to be for farmers I think, and working hours. It's a bit outdated though, and no one ever knows when the clocks are going to change!
WILL YOU BE CHANGING YOUR CLOCKS TO SPRING FORWARD?
Yes, what a waste of TIME. Pun intended. Is it not time to quit this idiotic ritual? It was put in in WW ll. So that there would still be daylight left to work our Victory Gardens when we got home from work. Since very few people can even grow gardens any more let alone can the vegies for winter use, let us stop always moving time around.
There is no time for this nonsense.
It seems worse to lose an hours sleep in the Spring than to gain an hour in the Fall.
STOP MOVING TIME AROUND ALL THE TIME.!!!!!
Fall Back, Spring Forward is dumb because they're interchangeable?
For the confused on the fall back, spring forward... there's always the option of looking at the following procedure.
Later in the year, go back (to summer), early in the year, go forward (to summer).
Reverse (to winter) for the southern hemisphere.
If you are a global type of a person... then go towards the middle of the year when its either summer or winter.
