Thanks for the friend add. I have now reciprocated.
You've now got to 'sparkmail' me and tell me your name and where you live so I can mark you on my map. No sense having a Sparkie friend if I don't know who she is or where she comes from.
I'm glad you like my blogs and my vlog. I did another one last night but haven't been back yet to see who has looked and commented and who hasn't. The other Tasmanian Sparkie and myself always have a Wednesday out together, so put it in a vlog.. took ages as I only have a digital camera and had to edit and join 21 .avis.
Anyway, let's hope we are great SF's kiddo and take care for now. Cheers and enjoy the rest of your week. - Mel, Tasmania, Australia.
Grandmother clocks are half the size of Grandfather clocks. I like our Grandmother better than the Grandfather actually because its older and looks more sophisticated ... if that's a good word to use for a clock.
Couldn't get to sleep at night so I made Tom stop most of them. I did get used to all the ticking tho' and didn't take much notice after a while. These days we only keep a dozen wound up as it is very hard on the wrist winding lots .. tho' some can just be wound and the chimes not wound at all. I do love some of the chimes tho'.
Yes we have Daylight Saving and it's not such a nightmare as it used to be. Probably about 2 dozen clocks around the house all up, plus our watches is all we have to worry about. DST is more of a hassle with Skype and International phone calls, etc. as America and Canada change early, then the United Kingdom, these 3 countries going forward at this time of the year and then we in Australia go back the hour on 7th April... bwah!! Mucks up all our Skype meeting times... and same goes for the other end of the year...
Wow, I have been raving on here a bit... have a great week and thanks for looking at my blogs and vlog. I appreciate.
