My hubby has collected antique clocks for almost 40 years, so it's an all day job for him, twice a year, to reset all the ones that he's gotten working!!! After all those had been set, I found two electric clocks that I had to set!! He always forgets those!! He has cuckoo clocks, a grandfather clock (my favorite!), and many wall clocks and mantel clocks! There are "Bim-Bams", "Ding-Dongs", "Bong-Bongs", "Ping-Pings",--you name it! It used to be noisy and annoying on every hour---but---somehow, over the years, whenever one runs down---we actually miss it!!!
