    So, members here live all over the world. A lot of members live in the UK. I am in the US, in Missouri which is in the Central Time zone. I think (but might be wrong?) that the UK is in GMT?

    Currently, it is 8:41 pm here, CDT. If it is this time here, what time is it in GMT, or wherever you live? Just wondering.

    We are GMT and it's 18.08pm you are 12.08 or something similar.

    We're on British SummerTime at the moment. April to October.
    So we're an hour ahead of GMT but an hour behind Paris.

    BST was introduced in the early part of last century.

    @Doghouse Riley - that's very interesting - I'd never heard of BST.

    I'm PST - so it is 7:00 pm here. I believe 9:00 pm for you AAnightowl. Canada time zones and Newfoundlands' unique ones confuse the heck out of me. When trying to catch radio programs on CBC it is nice that I can tune in a little earlier on certain provinces' broadcasts and go to bed earlier. :)

    Your 8:41 PM (our 20:41) on a Sunday evening is 3:41 AM on a Monday morning.

    @Logan, so when it is 18:00 pm GMT and it is 12:00 here, are you already on the next day? These time zones do get confusing to me.

    I guess 'BST' is about the same as our daylight saving time? I don't think it saves anything myself.

    I think that it's the same as our BST that starts when the clocks go forward on the last Sunday in March. At the moment it's 11.13 am here and a Friday.

    :smt044 That doesn't matter to us because we're retired. But what about the ones who have to go to work on Saturday.:smt044

    Just copied this off the web
    Why do we have BST? British Summer Time (BST), otherwise known as daylight saving time, was originally devised to keep factories open for longer in the summer – since there was enough light to do so. It has also been suggested that BST reduces energy consumption.

    I have a meme with an old Indian saying something like "Only the government would think that you could make a blanket longer by cutting off one end and sewing it to the other." That was his thought on daylight savings time.

    I wish they would do away with daylight savings time. It is a pest.
