Changing of the clocks is the challenge of the day tomorrow. Three different radios with three different routines to change the damn things. Just finished all the in-house clocks and I'm mentally exhausted. Successfully got the DVD players changed, though.

Since owning the SL I've always skipped resetting the clock on it.

We're pretty much done driving it for the year and by the time we start again next spring, we'll be back on daylight savings time. :thumbsup:

My Mercedes keep me so broke, I can't even pay attention!

So don't pay attention to the time either!!, or are you so broke you can't afford to change your mind?

Yea, you and the big kahuna, the only two non-conforming states.

As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me
What the time was that was on my watch, yeah
And I said

Does anybody really know what time it is?
Does anybody really care?
If so I can't imagine why

The computers and my watch change on their own. The rest I rarely look at.

My wife is away - Tried to adjust the clocks in the kitchen - stove, microwave, radio - Can't figure them out - She will have to do it when she gets back!

Clock radio in bedroom comes on at 7am. I don't know how to change it, so last night I turned the volume all the way down. Or at least I thought I did. This morning it came on with 100% volume at 6am :(

But I did adjust one battery operated wall clock - It was easy!

Amazing what they did with so few lyrics!

Yeccchhh. I collect clocks. Over 40 in the house. All run. 3 Grandfather clocks, many antiques. I don't even know how many watches (and my wife's - "Honey, can you set this for me???"). DST changeover here is a nightmare.

MOH likes unusual clocks, so we have a lot of them, too. DST going on and off means changing time all over the house. 6 of them, just in the family room....

We've got about a dozen clocks that needed changing.
The one that didn't is my favourite: it's a so-called atomic clock that sets itself to a radio signal from Colorado, I think. Best of all, it projects the time in big red digits on the bedroom ceiling. Perfect for near-blind insomniacs like me.

Everything in our house is auto DST, so the only clocks that need to be adjusted for DST are in the 107's :)
