Hi, John,

Let me tell you my story, as an alegory for your issue.

I take one pill in the morning and another at night. I have a routine 
about the morning pill, and breakfast, otherwise I'd forget it every 
day. I also have an alarm set on my phone. Same for the night pill, that 
also has an alarm.

BTW, do foxes carry a phone or watch to tell them when sunset and 
sunrise occur?

My chooks were killed by a fox last Sunday night due to my lack of diligence. I don't want to get more chooks until I can make something that automatically locks the chooks in at night and lets them out in the morning. This would also be useful when I go away for a few days.
