(Massachusetts) Daylight savings time ends this weekend on November 06, 2011. Make sure you adjust your alarm clocks. Most everyone's mobile phones, devices and computers will automatically adjust for this but make sure you're updated.

With the change of the season it's also important to take this opportunity to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. It's especially vital here in the north east part of the USA to change the batteries in your carbon monoxide detectors with the home heating season coming into full effect. Make sure to check on sick and elderly friends, family and collegues that their detectors are up to date and functioning properly. With the design of some homes with especially high ceilings you should even consult with an alarm contractor or home repair contractor to work with ladders to change the detectors and/or their batteries. If a system or detector is chirping it's usually a sign that the battery needs replacing. Contact your local fire department to make sure you are properly covered by the needed detectors. Also with Christmas coming up make extra sure you have the appropriate fire extinguishers in case of fire and check kitchen fire extinguishers for being up to date.
