A thrifty couple will not be putting their clocks back this weekend - because it saves money on their energy bills.

Retired John and Janys Warren, from St Georges near Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, live 'in the future' an hour ahead of everybody else and save a third on their gas and electricity bills.

The couple stopped putting their clocks back five years ago when they realised the darker and shorter days were triggering John's headaches.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Move to the tropics; the longest day here is about a quarter hour longer than the shortest.
