I have two alarm clocks - and both are currently useless to me. One is a clock-radio that is supposed to be self-setting (time) when you plug it in. All I get is a flashing 12:00, and since I cannot find the directions that came with it (they probably got lost when we moved), it is of no use except to play the radio. The buttons on top are unfathomable. The other one appears to work well, except that you can set an alarm time and turn it on and the clock completely ignores the alarm function.
The newspaper guy we have must have some screws loose. For two days, he has thrown the paper into the only snowy spot we still have. My daughter shoveled our driveway, so it is clear, but he chooses to put the paper on the snow in a grassy patch. It would only require a bit more energy to toss it two more feet into the dry area. Maybe I should promise him a tip at Christmas if he would do that for me.
Snow, snow, ice and snow......GO AWAY. It's March now, time for daffodils and crocus and greening buds. We are supposed to get more snow on Thursday and I may scream.
