It’s Time to Change the Clocks

Well, you’ve been asking when and where you’ll be seeing me on TV shows and my tour has begun!   We’re talking about Daylight Saving Time ending this weekend and how its a great time to do a little safety reminders and some housekeeping.  First, a little history of Daylight Saving.  The concept of advancing our clocks during the summer months originated over a century ago. First implemented in Germany and Britain in 1916, daylight saving time was considered a means to conserve energy during World War I. The United States began using DST in 1918.  The Energy Policy Act means we “spring forward” on the second Sunday in March and “fall back” on the first Sunday in November.

Here’s some great products that deal with DST in the realm of being safe and being on time! First, its time to talk watches.

You’ve heard the saying “Change the clocks, Change the batteries.”  It’s important.  Think about it, every time firefighters answer a call, they put their lives on the line. The risk increases if they have to enter a burning home to rescue those inside who did not have enough time to escape. Affirm your commitment to the firefighting community… take the Be A Hero, Save A Hero Pledge and promise to make home fire safety a priority. Kidde will make a donation to National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and Help the Good Guys, organizations that are dedicated to helping the families of injured and fallen firefighters, on behalf of every person who takes the pledge and share it on social media. Visit to learn more and to make the pledge.

Did you know you should change your fridge’s water filter ever six months? YES! I’s true!   You need to have great tasting water.  The GE replacement water filter model MWF does more than make water smell and taste better by removing chlorine taste and odor. It also reduces waterborne contaminants such as mercury, lead and select herbicides and pesticides. Its compact design allows for easy, tool-free installation and removal. This refrigerator filter is eligible for GE’s SmartOrder replenishment program, which allows consumers to set up automatic reorders so they receive water filters every six months without having to physically go to a store or go online to purchase one.  They’ve got a great deal going on right now too.  Go to, order your filter, and when you check out, use the Promo Code “CLOCK” and they’ll knock 10% off the price PLUS you’ll get free shipping.

Finally, I go back to the “Change the clock, change the batteries” saying.  It’s important.  It’s also important to make sure you use batteries that last.  That’s why I’m recommending Duracell batteries with Duralock Power Preserve Technology.  They lock in power for up to 10 years in storage so no matter when you buy them, you have the peace of mind knowing that you have the necessary power to keep your family safe.  Duracell batteries are available everywhere.  Here’s where you can learn more about the future of batteries!

Well, that’s it for now, tune in to your favorite morning shows and you’ll see me pop up and talk more tech!

Rock forth, Mitch

  1. Great article. GE also just did an article about changing your water filters every six months, when the clock change, and I think it’s a brilliant idea. So many people forget to change their water filters every six months, but by following the rule of changing the filters, it should be easy to remember.
