Daylight Standard Time '08

I'm reposting the blog from '07 that today begins Daylight Standard Time. All clocks moved backward giving everyone one extra hour. On the other hand, we lose one hour when all clocks moved forward for Daylight Savings Time. The two days are the days we must check the smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, and batteries in flashlights. If your residence is missing smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, and flashlights, you’re smoking something. After you read the Blog, go to the hardware store and buy these lifesaving items.

First, check smoke alarms. Check the batteries by using a battery reader. If you don’t have a battery reader, buy one at an electronics store. Make sure the smoke alarms are clean such as no dust and no spider webs. Each floor must have a smoke alarm including one near the kitchen. Replace low charged batteries.

Second, check the fire extinguishers. Fire extinguishers must be clean. Check the gage. The arrow must be in the green. Each floor must have a fire extinguishers including one near the kitchen.

Last, check flashlights. Check the batteries by using a battery reader. Replace low charged batteries. Have spare bulbs because flashlight bulbs do burn out. The number of flashlights equals the number of people or number of floors whichever is greater in a residence. My house has two floors and we have seven flashlights.

Important Note: The blog entry is #299. Blog #300 I'm going to post the top 30 blogs. It's going to take time. Thank you for being patient.

Wed Nov 5, 2008

Please vote on Tue Nov 4. The next President of the United States is huge given today’s current events nationally and internationally. I vote absentee. I complete the absentee ballot and deliver my ballot to my local voting poll. I avoid the lines. I remember a few elections I waited a long ass time. No more :D

I wrote in a Sept blog people have been bitter. The economy, the election, and the anxiety level in our lives are some factors to people being bitter. I can’t recall every being bitter at someone else; however, I’m sure I was bitter I forgot.

Wed Nov 5 is a day of relief as the election is over. The day after election brings closure for the elected government officials and propositions. People begin to go back to their lives with family, friends, school, and work. And the day after election people begin thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. I realized recently holidays are not just another day. Holidays are days to spend time with loved ones family and/or friends. Holidays are days to slow down. I can elaborate more on my new feelings, attitudes, and thoughts on holidays; however, it’s another blog subject. There should be a holiday on voting ~~ Happy voting, everyone!
