It's that time again! Set your clocks back an hour and don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke detectors!

I realized that with new dates I was really wasting batteries, since Daylight Saving Time is now around 8 months and the winter is only about 4 months. I know change mine on New Year's Day and July 1st. That way the batteries are in for 6 months each.

Gee that is a long time for daylight savings. Here it is nearly 6 months and there is a push to shorten it. I hope that does not happen with electricity costs going through the roof we need as much daylight at the end of the day as possible.

LOL yes! We needed to be at the UCONN football field to clean up after their big game. The band would get paid 3000 dollars and for that kind of money we were happy to do it. LOL okay maybe not thrilled, what a mess those fans can make!
