You know the old saying, "spring ahead, fall back"...
Set your clocks ahead 1 hour Sunday 2AM
It's time to spring ahead!
Daylight saving time 2012 officially begins this Sunday, March 10 at 2:00AM (local time) -- remember to set your clocks ahead one hour to 3:00AM when you go to bed Saturday night.
It's also the perfect time to install a fresh battery in your smoke detectors.
About Daylight Saving Time
Daylight saving time (DST) — aka summer time is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks during the summertime so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.
Most of the United States and Canada observe DST beginning the second Sunday in March and ending the first Sunday in November -- almost two-thirds of the year.

Plus, How-to Recycle Your Tree Curbside for Free!
As the holiday's draw to a close, here's a few tips for proper disposal of unwanted wrapping paper, wreaths and trees!
Holiday Recycling Questions
- Can glossy holiday gift bags go in the blue cart?
Paper gift bags can be recycled. Tip: Usually if you can tear the paper fairly easily it will pulp up at the paper mill. Gift bags can be reused or donated to charity.
- Can cellophane or foil wrapping paper go in the blue cart?
Non-paper wrapping material should not go in the blue roll carts. Most “foil-like” paper is metallic ink on paper and is accepted with recycling.
- Can present ribbons be recycled in the blue cart?
Non-paper ribbons are not accepted (very few ribbons are paper-based).
Plenty more tips below this break!
