Default It's that time of the year again, folks...

1. Daylight Saving Time begins in the US tomorrow (Sunday) at 2:00am. If it applies to you, sure to set your clocks ahead 1 hour before you go to sleep. If you don't know whether it applies to you, or if you don't live in the US and want to know when you need to change your clock, go here: http://www.webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/

Also, know why DST starts at 2am? Who's really awake at 2am?

Seriously, the time was picked because it was an hour where most businesses/services are closed, public transport schedules are at their lightest, and most people aren't awake for another few hours...so to tinker with the clock at 2am would be least disruptive.

2. Check that your e-mail address on your account is current. You may think it's not a problem now because you can still log in...but what happens when you forget your password?

3. This is especially meaningful to us this year with what happened with MIE (and I hope your recovery is going well!)...but please take this weekend to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and test the systems out. If your units are more than a few years old, you may want to replace them. You could be saving your and your family's lives with this step...if you do anything on this list, this better be it!!!

The Navajo Nation changes it's clocks, but the rest of Arizona is exempt.

Like Mr. Lucas I think I'll pretend I never saw this post so I can be an hour late for work with a good excuse that has nothing to do with a titled lady on a bicycle! 8-)

My computer, cell phone and alarm clock set themselves ahead but my kitchen clock, stove and KISS clock didn't. I was confused before I had my first cup of coffee in me.

This is true: it doesn't take much to confuse Greg.

Remember Greg that Lucas said 12 and it was really 13 and you were spot on.
