    DST

    Yesterday was the start of Daylight Savings Time for those areas that observe it, it's also that time when you need to change batteries in your smoke sectors and check your hardwired ones to make sure they work!

    The US always does it on a Sunday. I guess it cuts down on the late to work excuses. Who's gonna (want) to remember to reset your alarm after getting pissed at the party?
