Thanks for the reminder.

I should do the smoke detector and the CO monitors.

No, not really. Not further than the extent we control our government, and we know they control us instead. We’re at the awkward stage...not ready to start shooting them yet. And it’s more than 48 other states.

Looking forward to extra daylight after work to walk the dog.

I'll miss the extra hour of sleep. There are always a few stragglers coming in a bit bleary eyed at church when this transition occurs.

As I doff my propeller beanie cap and go into 100% nerd mode, the correct term is "daylight saving time" without an 's'. This tidbit is presented in the interest of pedants everywhere. :-)

Never could understand why we have to wait until 2am to change the clocks? Seem to me the government would make the switchover earlier on Saturday night, maybe 10pm, my normal bedtime. I find it so difficult changing the clock at 2am. I am so tired at that time. No wonder so many people are late for church! Yawwwnnnnnnnn!

Yes, I know. It is funny how dumb people can be at times. I heard that joke on the radio and just repeated it.

But....I really did go to the doctor the other day and he asked me if I am considering doing anything to prevent memory loss because I am almost 50 years old now. I told him...I don’t know doctor, I can’t remember....

I like that idea, B G!

After I hit 62, I wanted 7-8hrs of sleep. At 20-45, 4-5hrs did just fine. True, I get up at 4am to feed/water my cats, but now that I’ve sold my business, I can get the 7-8hrs, instead of working 15hrs/day, 7 days a week for all those 35+yrs.

Great. Now that my error has been pointed out to God and everyone, my PSA career is done. Finished. Kaput. Ruined.

Guess I gotta keep my day job.

I've never been a fan. The time should be the time!

We live in a world where even a "birth certificate" doesn't necessarily reflect the reality that existed on that date so, of course, why should the time be the time?

Been there, done that too, back when I had dogs. Now, I have cats, and they use litter pans. I just scoop the poop in the basement. No more stepping in it.

No...no...no! Theirs no way you'll loose you're PSA job over such a miner era. Take it from me -- someone whose prefect!

Precisely.

And people who check blood glucose with a battery powered meter should think about when they last changed batteries...
