    At least the clock in my car will be right tomorrow. :)

    Mine won't. The car has a strange fault where the computer resents itself every now and again. Only happens when I go to start it and it might go for weeks without happening, but what happens is the the starter motor hesitates briefly, a beeper beeps and then the car starts, but with the clock time and date changed. I found that setting the clock to the correct time appears to cause the fault to occur with greater regularity.

    apropos of nothing in particular, except to say @magic surf bus I do like the variations in your signature.

    Thank you - one has to move with the times @Lara mfl 05 - I still managed to pick up a few novelty items at the Car Boot, including a (wait for it) 1979 Margaret Thatcher Commemorative Loving Cup (Ulp, Bluuaaargh).

    I always spend the first hour or so confused as to whether the laptop, phone and tablet have automatically adjusted or not.

    Not just me then.:)

    This morning mobile, laptop and one digital radio all changed correctly. One digital radio and DVD player still on old time.

    Thank goodness for my trusty old fashioned manual watch to check whether the new technology has worked.

    I still have a large mechanical clock to adjust but everything else is automated

    Repositioning the stones for British Summer Time

    This morning National Trust Rangers are very carefully moving one of the famous standing stones at the ancient Avebury World Heritage Site.

    “Obviously Stone Age man didn’t have daylight saving, so twice a year we have to move one of the stones.” said Hilary Makins, National Trust Head Ranger.

    “Avebury is an astonishing monument to the Neolithic people’s ingenuity. We want to make sure the stones are as accurate as they were back when they were put up. Each one weighs several tonnes. It’s a huge effort, but it’s worth it.”

    Strangely enough, when I was at Avebury yesterday there were no signs of this mammoth task being prepared for :confused:.

    One October I walked into the very early service with only two old ladies for company.
