Daylight savings time tonight

We all get something for free tonight. Well, most of us, anyway, and not really free - more like prepaid. But tonight daylight savings time ends, so don't forget to set your clocks back one hour.

I always like this one. I don't make the clock changes 'til the morning, so when I wake up, BANG!, free hour. Less happy when I do the reverse in the spring. The downside is that since my daughter moved to Arizona a few years ago, I have to keep asking her "so what time is it there?"

Having saved this hour for about 6 months, I think we should be paid some interest on it.

TY for the reminder.

Also, check/change your smoke/CO detector batteries.

I already did the change. Like to do the task the night before as when I wake up, I don't want to use any of the precious free hour changing clock times .
