Hey..... Who's Got the TIME......

By
Real Estate Agent with Raveis Real Estate

 

A little mood music for the Old Timers or the young at heart.... Come the think of it today it's called classic.

This morning I was laying in bed thinking it's just to early to start my day.  At 9:05 the Halloween 5k begins so I waited until 5:30 to get moving....  Well... Modern Technology becomes obsolete quite fast and my atomic clock threw me a curve.... Daylight Savings Time was extended a year or two ago but my clock decided to FALL BACK on the wrong Day...    Now I gotta RUN because I lost an hour..

Dan -- I bought two of those "always the right time" clocks a while back.  For some reason (I can't remember what) I decided I didn't like them and stuffed 'em away in a box.  Good I did, I would never have remembered they were programmed for the old daylight time system.

When you reflect on it, isn't it amazing the music and the performances we created in the 60s and 70s given the primitive technology around at that time??!!

Keith & Robin... I've become pretty good at cramming so I'm back on schedule....

Maggie...You'll have to study a little more on my telephathic lingo.... Or... I'll have to be less confusing.  CJ's comment above more clearly explains my loss.... I have one of those CLOCKS that were suppose to always have the right time... after a power outage they should reset themselves,  when the time or date changes it automatically adjusts.  Well.... They Got Bugs..!!!   It reset itself so I thought it was an hour earlier...

Maureen... I will... But from the sounds outside I'm be Running Against the Wind....

Cheryl...  There is a song for everything.... As long as my memory holds out... !    LOL

Dan - Now I'm confused... I haven't been anywhere in my house yet except my computer and it's clock is fine (I think!). Now I'm going to have to look at all my other clocks to be sure! Good luck on your run!

Run, run as fast as you can - you can't catch Dan cause he's the Gingerbread Man!!!

When do we change our clocks, speaking of that?

Good luck in your race!

Linda... You're ok.... Time does not change until next week but my stupid clock automatically changed itself early.

Ann.. Think next weekend we Fall Back to the old time keeping.

Susie..  Yes... I'll be a head of the pack that day.  Should I give you a wake up call at 5:00am new time which will be 6:00am old time that day?  It gets so confusing.....

Teri... I'm back already.... Getting so fast you don't even have time to miss me...   :-)

Suzanne... YES.. That is correct.  The old rule was the last Sunday in October but a year or so ago the rule was changed to have the fall back occur on the FIRST Sunday in November.

Mana,,, Bad choice of words on my part.... It is actually an "automatic" clock that sets the time and date when it is plugged in.  I don't know where it gets the information and assumed it scans the satellites for accuracy but I could be wrong... Cost was not much...my guess somewhere around... $30-$50

Really bought the clock for the Big Numbers but they are getting tough to read when I wake up in the middle of the night.  Think I need to look for a voice controlled clock but I'm afraid it would contain a nagging little voice...  :-)

Dan, 5:30 and you were still in bed are you sick????  I understand the clock thing, but at your age you must get up a few times during the night and should have noticed something was wrong :)

George...  I've got aways to go before catching up with you.  Right now I'm not sleeping long enough to need a middle of the night stretch.

Marc... Race was fine... A little windy but ran my fastest 5k ever...  Broke below 27 minutes for the first time.
