Be careful for what you wish. Simple can also be boring, or lonely.

Yep, bucky is right. Daylight Saving Time was changed a couple of years ago, which is why some of your computers/VCRs, etc. are still on automatic unless they have updates that make the newer change.

At least the children who go trick-or-treating will have some daylight in their favor.

Buying atomic clocks would be cheaper! I have switched out all of our old clocks to the ones that set from a radio broadcast.
