Just a reminder to Fall your Clocks Back 1hr. tonight for the return of Standard-Time if you observe it. :(

it sucks to work night shift on the Saturday night of returning to Standard time (note, I don't really mind in the spring when I only have to work 11 hours and get paid for 12; it's the working 13 in fall that grates)

This is also a good time to change out the batteries in your smoke alarms: Change smoke detector batteries along with your clocks tonight. (http://www.cdispatch.com/news/article.asp?aid=13873)

According to a press release from Columbus Fire and Rescue, a home fire death occurs each three hours in the United States, and 80 percent of those occur in homes without working smoke alarms.

"The most common cause of non-working smoke alarms are worn or missing batteries," the release states. "Changing smoke alarm batteries at least once a year is one of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce these tragic deaths and injuries."

I forgot and couldn't figure out why I couldn't fall back to sleep at 9:00 am when I went to bed around 2:30 am and when I realized it was actually 8:00 am on the clock, I was even more annoyed even though technically the amount of sleep is the same.

We had an ice show rehearsal at 5:45 a.m. That extra hour was greatly appreciated!
