I know there's an easy formula, and I was Just think 21=perfect; a little higher than 21=good if you like warm weather, which I do; a lot higher than 21=fine in Mississippi, where we know how to live in hot weather, too hot in Europe (or the northern US), where life isn't designed for hot weather; a little lower than 21=colder than I like but perfect in some people's opinions; a lot lower than 21= pile up the blankets and hibernate. In other words, all you need to do is remember 21. No need to worry about a complicated formula. I love the 24-hour clock, btw. On the few clocks that I own that offer the choice between 12-hour and 24-hour, I choose 24-hour. It makes much more sense to me. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
