    Default Remember When?

    You could pull out the stem on your watch, give it a good half twist with your thumb and forefinger, and JUST LIKE THAT Daylight Standard/Savings Time was handled?

    I have to go find on the internet how to change the time on this electronic gizmo on my wrist. Wonder how long I'll procrastinate

    Technology may be grand for some, but when you're complicating boiling water I can do without it.

    Ummm, when you do figure out how, check the MARK for DST adjustment.

    We don't deal with that in Arizona.

    Apparently Congress doesn't deal with it either. How many years have they been threatening to do away with it?
