    So, how many tries did it take you?

    Good morning,

    Changing the clocks over the weekend was pretty straightforward except for the one in the car. That one always seems to be more of a challenge, especially in the fall. No, our 2013 Buick does not have GPS.

    My question of the day is: Is there any device you have, that has a clock, and which gives you more difficulty than the others whenever you have to adjust it?

    Have a great week everybody.

    I used to have a problem with digital watches! Never could find the instructions. Sometimes you had to double click the right side button to access the time changing menu, sometimes double click the left side button.

    Then we had one watch that you had to hold in both buttons at the same time, stand on one foot, face north and press the 3rd button with your nose.

    I was ecstatic yesterday when changing the time in the car. I simply had to touch the time display and the arrows showed on the screen to go backward or forward. Ahhhhhh, the simple things.

    I was obsessing about the "Toyota" clock.
    Paul was too and for 2 days we just ignored it.
    I mentioned it to a friend and she told me that it was easy and talked me thru it.
    Whew......I was anxious about it.........ridiculous, I know

    The automatic light switches for outside give hubby issues because they are a pain. He has to use a flashlight just to see the tiny numbers. The clock in my Pilot is easy but keeps getting fast on its own. It was up to 8 minutes fast before we changed the time.

    Just think of the fast-running clock in your vehicle as a helpful tool. You'll never be late for anything Robin, no matter what time of year it is.

    Robin, if your car radio is Bluetooth enabled, sync it with your phone and the correct time should show based on the time on your phone, easy-peasy.

    Walt; do you have any idea how hard you've just made life for us Flintstone types. You lost me after "car radio". Easy peasy indeed.
