Default Change meter time for daylight savings time

Daylight Savings Time - Change the time on your meter!

It's that time again, at least in the United States!

Remember to change the time on your meter (and pump, too) if it doesn't change automatically.

I have a list I keep to remind myself because I'm horrible at remembering. Here are some other devices that you might need to change:

Car clock
Voice recorder clock
Watches
Camera clock

Here's a handy link for time change around the world:

Very, errrr, timely, Mar2a!

On the last go 'round, I forgot to adjust my meter for a few days, and I couldn't figure out why my basal suddenly took a turn for the slightly flaky.

Nah, I think I will wait until we change them back again to change my lancet. I've only used this one for seven or eight months, now.

I never mess with the clock on my camera! It isn't important enough to me if the time stamp is an hour off one way or the other. I actually have that function turned off anyway!

Hmmm, I can't even remember when the last time was I changed the needle drum on my lancet!! I've probably been using this needle since some time early Feb.
