    It's time to set your clock's back this weekend (except you babybear, bobtraw and other Arizona residents)---another thing you should do is change the batteries in all your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Stay safe

    My carbon monoxide detector just kicked the bucket. The new one will have fresh batteries.

    Check your testes for lumps when your sack is loose, like after a warm shower :grad:

    Did you guys know smoke detectors are radioactive? Did you know they need to be replaced every 10 years?

    YASSS. I just replaced all of mine about a year ago. Safety first in my book. There are two main types that are quite different too. You need to do some studying before you go out and buy new ones.

    oh---I would also change the batteries in any LCD thermostats you have, nothing worse than waking up cold as ice because your thermostat stopped working

    Pinch the testicle between your thumb and forefinger and then roll it around, feeling the entire surface area for inconsistencies

    Mine are all wired too. You still need to replace them about every 10 years.

    I live next to a firehouse, so my odds of dying in a fire are pretty slim, but if it were going to happen, it would be me---:jj:
