The Running Realtor: Hey..... Who's Got the TIME......

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

Hey..... Who's Got the TIME......


A little mood music for the Old Timers or the young at heart.... Come the think of it today it's called classic.

This morning I was laying in bed thinking it's just to early to start my day.  At 9:05 the Halloween 5k begins so I waited until 5:30 to get moving....  Well... Modern Technology becomes obsolete quite fast and my atomic clock threw me a curve.... Daylight Savings Time was extended a year or two ago but my clock decided to FALL BACK on the wrong Day...    Now I gotta RUN because I lost an hour..

LOL, wish we could turn it back a little. Have a fun run.

Dan, I'm lost.  Because it's not today doesn't that mean that you didn't lose an hour?  Good luck on your run!

Run Dan Run!

Dan -- I bought two of those "always the right time" clocks a while back.  For some reason (I can't remember what) I decided I didn't like them and stuffed 'em away in a box.  Good I did, I would never have remembered they were programmed for the old daylight time system.

When you reflect on it, isn't it amazing the music and the performances we created in the 60s and 70s given the primitive technology around at that time??!!

Keith & Robin... I've become pretty good at cramming so I'm back on schedule....

Maggie...You'll have to study a little more on my telephathic lingo.... Or... I'll have to be less confusing.  CJ's comment above more clearly explains my loss.... I have one of those CLOCKS that were suppose to always have the right time... after a power outage they should reset themselves,  when the time or date changes it automatically adjusts.  Well.... They Got Bugs..!!!   It reset itself so I thought it was an hour earlier...

Maureen... I will... But from the sounds outside I'm be Running Against the Wind....

Cheryl...  There is a song for everything.... As long as my memory holds out... !    LOL

Dan - Now I'm confused... I haven't been anywhere in my house yet except my computer and it's clock is fine (I think!). Now I'm going to have to look at all my other clocks to be sure! Good luck on your run!

Run, run as fast as you can - you can't catch Dan cause he's the Gingerbread Man!!!

When do we change our clocks, speaking of that?

Good luck in your race!

Run Dan Run!!  This just means you'll be "ahead of us" with the time change!! 

PS...Just don't wake up Sandra or you may really have to RUN!!

Dan--Now you really have to run don't cha? That little change is messing with minds all over the US. Good luck with your 5K!
Posted by Teri Eckholm, REALTOR Serving Mpls/St Paul North & East Metro (Boardman Realty) over 12 years ago

Linda... You're ok.... Time does not change until next week but my stupid clock automatically changed itself early.

Ann.. Think next weekend we Fall Back to the old time keeping.

Susie..  Yes... I'll be a head of the pack that day.  Should I give you a wake up call at 5:00am new time which will be 6:00am old time that day?  It gets so confusing.....

Teri... I'm back already.... Getting so fast you don't even have time to miss me...   :-)

Posted by No Longer Active (Real Estate) over 12 years ago


I was all confused about this, so if I understand you correctly we will fall back next weekend...?

Posted by Suzanne Sands, Somerset MA Real Estate (Pavao Real Estate) over 12 years ago
Dan, LOL, How much did you pay for your atomic clock?
Posted by Mana Tulberg, Real Estate Agent - Camarillo CA (805 County Real Estate) over 12 years ago


Suzanne... YES.. That is correct.  The old rule was the last Sunday in October but a year or so ago the rule was changed to have the fall back occur on the FIRST Sunday in November.

Mana,,, Bad choice of words on my part.... It is actually an "automatic" clock that sets the time and date when it is plugged in.  I don't know where it gets the information and assumed it scans the satellites for accuracy but I could be wrong... Cost was not guess somewhere around... $30-$50

Really bought the clock for the Big Numbers but they are getting tough to read when I wake up in the middle of the night.  Think I need to look for a voice controlled clock but I'm afraid it would contain a nagging little voice...  :-)

Go for it, I'm getting my pretzels and Pepsi ready for the Giants Dolphins in London.

Dan, 5:30 and you were still in bed are you sick????  I understand the clock thing, but at your age you must get up a few times during the night and should have noticed something was wrong :)

Hi Dan -

Same damn thing happened to me-

How was the race?

Posted by Marc Blasi over 12 years ago

George...  I've got aways to go before catching up with you.  Right now I'm not sleeping long enough to need a middle of the night stretch.

Marc... Race was fine... A little windy but ran my fastest 5k ever...  Broke below 27 minutes for the first time.

Dan, I actually spent precious moments yesterday thinking this through and it made my head hurt!  LOL  I think I finally got it though.  Hope the run was a good one!

Maggie... Sorry, Feel bad confusing you.  If I'm unclear feel free to call or email me so I can splain my twisted thoughts.... ( explain, get it )  :-)
Posted by No Longer Active (Real Estate) over 12 years ago

Hi Dan-

Pretty f'n good time!

(Uh oh - I hope no one gets offended!)

Posted by Marc Blasi over 12 years ago

Marc... My best time ever!  And you know I enjoy poking the politically correct...  F'em
