Daylight Savings Time

It's funny the things that will bug you. A little over a year ago, we bought an inexpensive wall clock to put in the kitchen. You know, 10-12" diameter, analog (moving hands), runs on a couple of AA batteries, 15 bucks or so... Anyway, I'm reading the box, and it says it automatically detects daylight savings time. Sure enough, this silly little clock, with no evident means of communicating, does indeed spring forward and fall back. My $600 Bose waveradio clock/CD player doesn't do that, nor any of the other alarm clocks in the house. But the dorky little WalMart clock sure can. This fall, I think I'm going to stay up till 2am, and see if it stops for an hour, or winds it's hands backwards, or what. But it doesn't set the time, or do anything else funky. Just that spring-forward, fall-back thing. errrrrr
