    I counted 20 clock “thingies” in my house (number I had to set + number that set themselves):

     

    • Kitchen        – 3 (Stove, Microwave, and wall clock) + 0
    • Dining Room – 0 + 1 (“Atomic” clock)
    • Living Room  – 4 (including timer for the room lights, and an old VCR) + 2 (DVR + Outside lights)
    • Bedroom      - 2 (including answering machine) + 0
    • Office         - 0 + 1 (my PC is Windoz 7)
    • Hall             - 1 + 0 (Clock thermostat)
    • Guest room - 1 + 0 + (1 old VCR not plugged in, so it doesn’t count)
    • Bathroom     - 0 + 0 (thank god)
    • Basement     - 0 + 0 (let’s not go crazy, OK)
    • Car              - 1 + 1 (includes company Windoz 7 PC in the trunk ;-)
    • Max             - 0 + 1 (after I plugged him in today - Company supplied Virgin Pulse Pedometer)
    • Cell phones   - 0 + 2

     

    Whew!
