Only a public service announcement (of some kind) would oblige us to interrupt your weekend. And we have a pressing one: Daylight Saving Time begins (for those of us under its thumb) at 2 a.m. tomorrow. Which instantly becomes 3 a.m.

Fortunately the computers are smart enough to set themselves. But that's about it. The rest require "intervention," as surgeons like to call it.

After many years of experimentation, we've settled on changing all the clocks when making the rounds before retiring on Saturday night. We count our blessings the old VCR has been retired, but there's still the toaster oven, the microwave, the oven, the kitchen clock (why four clocks in one room?), the assorted clock/radios, the shop clock, the atomic clock in the bunker and the clock in the car before we can hit the sack.

Guess which one we still manage to forget. Right, the clocks in our cameras. Hence this public service announcement. Set the clock in your cameras for Daylight Saving Time tonight.

We'll see you Monday (with a solution if you didn't read this in time). An hour later than usual.
