And a fun that we have, man I am so happy with that, my year cannot broken anymore. :whistle:

End of October than we have in the Netherlands Wintertime.

Thank you for the information.
I am not a lover for Summertime, but we spare 1 hour energy.
That is important, I suppose.
For the persons they don't know what I do mean with Atom clock:

An Atom clock also known as Radio Graphic Control clock is an Instrument that get the signal from a Transmitter somewhere in a country.
Every hour get the clock a signal from the Transmitter somewhere in a country.
I am living in the Netherlands, I get the signal for my clock from Frankfurt am Main Germany.
So on 27 March 2011 time stamp 02.00h. am get the clock the signal from Germany that it must be 1 hour forwards.
If you can see, I cannot forget.
There is also a good thing about Atom clock and that is: The Atom clock or R.G.C. runs always on time.
The Transmitter from Frankfurt am Main is exacter than the Big Ben from London United Kingdom. Believe me, people, it is absolute true.

I thought that Daylight Saving time was strictly a United States thing.
