"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment" -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spring ahead! Here in the United States clocks spring forward from 1:59 a.m. to 3:00 a.m overnight tonight. (Our friends in Europe have a few weeks to go before changing.)
Many fire departments encourage people to change the batteries in their smoke detectors when they change their clocks because Daylight Saving Time provides a convenient reminder. Your chances of surviving a fire doubles with a working smoke detector. If that is not enough to convince you, look at it this way: If you change your batteries pro-actively you never have to worry about waking up in the middle of the night to that relentless beeping and trying to figure out which detector's battery needs replacing. I found a COUPON for $1 off energizer batteries. You can print it once a month... Now you have no excuse.
