    Thanks, LE! I didn't know about this until I happened to hear about it on the radio today. When did it become the 2nd Sunday of March that we do this? I thought it was always the 1st or 4th Sundays. They seem to change it around all the time.

    One year we moved the clock the wrong way. Wife did it, not me... Honest.

    I have tried to do the "spring forward" and "fall back" bit over the years.

    Unfortunately the last time I tried to "spring forward", I tripped on the edge of the couch and "fell down" instead. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So nowadays, I do it the easy way and just reset the clock.









    :D

    Too late! Drove into the parking lot and wondered why it was so full and why the girl who comes in at 8:00 was there. Then I heard the time at the top of the hour on the radio. Whoops!
