    Why is that more memorable than "Spring back fall forward"?
    Why not just "add an hour in summer"?

    You’d think that will all the technology in modern cars, the time would automatically update.
    You satnav, DAB and FM radio know the time. Cars with WiFi know the time, too.
    A simple thing like changing the time should be a thing of the past.

  11. Spring forward is more memorable because if something is going to ping off a spring it will propel forward; and I guess the other has got to be fall back. Now don’t confuse me.:rolleyes:

    I wound like the job of winding that up, nor certainly that of putting back and forward an hour..

    All of mine change automatically, apart from oven, microwave, caravan and car. I just leave the latter two on BST as they are mostly used in summer.
     
  14. I used to have a clock over the mantelpiece and got tired of taking the step ladder to it every six months to change the time. So I changed its position to a corner within easy reach

    All you have to remember is the Winter time is GMT and the proper time.
