GRAFTON, Mass -- Yes, it's time to turn the clock back one hour before going to bed. 

On Sunday, Nov. 4, everyone earns one hour of extra snooze time when daylight savings strikes at 2 a.m.

 That also means you have to run around the house and change the clock on the microwave oven, the coffee maker, the car dashboard, your watch, the clock radio, your...wait, why do we need to have the time on so many things?

Be grateful you don't work for the Willard Clock Museum.

The Massachusetts Department of Fire Services is also reminding residents that now is a good time to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

I agree. The hour I gained was spent setting back all the clocks, wall thermostats, etc I have that don't do it automatically.

Here's a brilliant Liberal idea that will save millions of dollars.Since no one likes setting the clocks back 1 hr. in the fall then setting them forward again 1 hr. in the spring, and since it no longer serves any practical purpose to do either. Next spring, let's move them ahead 1/2 hr. and then never touch the damn things again EVER period.
