Smoke Detectors

Fall back time sucks.  I hate that it is dark at 5PM headed for 4PM.  It makes me cranky crankier.  I like the sunlight, I need sunlight to be half way normal.

All the clocks are not changed yet, in the car I just pressed buttons until the hour changed, I got some weird beeps and Far Guy got all excited.  The clock on the garage cannot be changed with out a stepladder.

We heard on the news that smoke detectors/carbon monoxide detectors should be replaced every ten years.  We had one that was put in place in 2000…so it needed to go. Two new detectors were put up. We added another carbon monoxide detector since we have an LP Furnace and Fireplace. We now have three detectors downstairs and two upstairs. The batteries were changed in the ones not replaced.  I also marked the new ones with the month and date they were put in service…used a black sharpie too!  Some people say they don’t change their batteries til it beeps…Far Guy changes ours every time change…cause it makes me feel better.  He doesn’t need me whining about those batteries.

A old piano sound board, beware sign and a burning bush.

Remember to vote!  What ever the outcome some people will be happy and some will be sad. At least  all the mudslinging and hoopla will be over.

  1. Good reminder for all of us.
    I dislike the time change too. The darkness depresses me!
    The sign is very unique! I love the burning bush this time of year.
    Wishing you guys a good day.

  2. Thanks for the smoke detector reminder. As for the end of daylight savings, I am both happy and sad. I like the light in the morning now (I get up around 6:30AM) but don't like it getting dark at 4:30PM. Oh well, can't have it both ways. I am so glad today is Election Day and all this crap will be over with. This has been the worst campaign in my life. Have a great day!

  3. We change our batteries in smoke detectors in the springtime. And you're right about the election: some will be happy and others will be sad, but we are all Americans here and love our nation. I'll be watching the results tonight on TV. :-)

  4. I heard the same news report and wondered if it was just a marketing ploy. Changed the batteries on Saturday since I didn't change them in the Spring.

  6. I would prefer no time change as we don't get one minute more of daylight. However, I'm not bothered by the change.

  7. The earlier sunrise in the morning is getting me up earlier, so I'm still getting the same amount of daylight. Oh and the sun is shining today and it is supposed to get to 18C, so that is kind of exciting! I'm kind of like Red though, the time change doesn't bother me greatly. If I had to pick one, I'd say to stay on DST so that we get the long light evenings in the summer.

  9. I think we should ditch the time changing thing. It's really stupid.

  11. Not really a fan of the time change like you I like my sunlight . We change our batteries in the smoke detectors every 6 months plus our carbon monoxide ones are hooked up to hydro and have back up batteries . Always good to be on top of them though like the saying goes better to be safe then sorry . I pray for good to come out of all this election hoopla for you all over there . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  12. I don't like the time change either...I wish someone would just put a stop to it once and for all...pick the middle and be done with it! I need to buy new smoke detectors...I can't even remember when I took the old ones down. Thank goodness the election is almost over. I don't think it is going to go my way, so I'm sure I won't be happy tomorrow. But for now I have hope. Have a great rest of the week!

    Thanks for the reminder. I just assigned Tom to check our detectors tomorrow.

  15. We voted early weeks before and could just take it easy on the day. Watched a movie all night and checked on the results twice then went to bed. It was such a nasty campaign season that I work up today not remembering I needed to see the final results. I wasn't surprised.
