In my times at home over the six months I wasn’t working, I always knew what time it was.
You see in Emeryville, there is a Clif Bar factory, and they have a whistle/tone just like in “The Flintstones.” And it goes off at: 7:25, 7:30, 11:25, 11:30, 11:55, 12:00, 3:55, and 4:00.
Additionally somewhere there is a church somewhere nearby, and it has bells that go off at 8:00, 12:00, and 6:00.
However, it wasn’t until this past Friday that I discovered there is something definitely wrong with the church clock. At 8:00 in the morning it rings 18 times.
Now let’s think about that. That’s not two tolls for each hour. It’s also not off by 12 hours and ringing military time.
