We all remember the phrase "Spring forward, Fall back" which reminds us how Daylight Saving Time affects all our time telling devices, including computers, alarm clocks, cell phones, microwaves, car clocks and the  numerous watches we may own. The first Sunday morning in November which is today the 7th, is the time we "Fall back" at 2 a.m. Please don't forget to set your clocks back one hour and return to Standard Time.

Just wondering if I need to remind my morning appointments of the time change...hmm.  Do I just show up and assume they will remember? Guess I will wait until the morning to decide but right now I am going to change the clocks...well no I am not, I am going to remind TLH to change them...and hope he doesn't miss any.

That's a good reminder, Margaret...it's a festival of lights so I had taken a break this weekend to visit few friends - so before I go to bed...

I did this once Margaret and I had a very angry client. No matter how many times I apologized, it didn't matter. He was going back for a second look that day and when I called to reschedule, I found out that the house had sold on Saturday. My mess up with the time made no difference, but he still blamed me.

TLH, that's a good one Margaret?  You know there'll be at least one appointment not on board with Eastern Standard Time.

Is that why I was late to everything this morning...I did remind someone today who had his wristwatch set to the wrong time.  I am personally not looking forward to the early dark evenings but such is life.

Margaret, I did turn our clocks back at 11 pm last night....just before bedtime.  I do not like the fact that it gets dark around 5 pm....
