A friend was telling me about her new battery-operated doorbell. She was wondering if she would remember to change the batteries, since she only found out the backup battery in her clock radio was dead when the power went out.

Then it struck me. We get reminded in the news media to check the batteries in our smoke alarms every year when we change back from daylight savings time. Why not, for those of us with no memories, make it battery day? I'm going to change the batteries in my smoke alarm, clock radio (backup battery), wall clock, TV and VCR remote controls, and emergency flashlight. I've only had the gate opener remote for a couple of months, so I think that battery can wait 'till next year.
