Wizard of Changes -- ©cdozo 2004 to 2015
I changed the batteries in my smoke detector about a week ago. I changed my smoke detector batteries in February of 2006 too.

speaking of lids
I haven't been smoking anything. Your smoke detector wasn't detecting anything because there wasn't anything to detect. We don't use smoke detectors in Argentina because fires aren't the problem they are in the northern hemisphere. Something about the Coreolis effect or penguins, one of those differences.
I understand Austin has a woman fire chief. They are tearing down the Ms. February posters this very minute.
We just changed them (cause they wouldn't stop beeping at us). And I know they work, cause I've been home roasting coffee (really fun, and really good, fresh coffee), and the smoke from dark roasts trips the alarms.
Thanks for the reminder.
My local FD tells me to change my smoke detector batteries when the time changes "Spring forward, fall back, change your battery".
Did your time change? Is it spring yet?
Nope there has been no time change and it's not spring up there, but it's in the 70's here so maybe it is spring down here in Texas.
I just couldn't see the flashing red light that said the batteries were OK, so I swapped them out. A couple of days later it dawned on me that if I wrote about it here with the tag "smoke detector," I would have a locatable record of when I last changed the batteries.
What good thinking!
I haven't done enough live-journaling to start thinking of it as a sort of calender. I should.
I'd love to see you post more. Better yet, you could come and visit.
