Cuckoo clock

A friend, when she learned I'd lived in Germany for several years, asked me to fix a German cuckoo clock she'd inherited. It hadn't worked in years. I told her, hey, I don't know a thing about fixing clocks. She said, yes, but you lived in Germany, doesn't everyone there have one? You must know more than I do, right? Please at least try? She was so insistent I said I'll give it a go but I don't guarantee it will work.

So I took it apart, put it back together, and now

the bird backs out and asks what time it is.

And, if it stopped, it shows exact time twice a day!

You should have paid attention to the internet host location of that on line clock repair site. Probably Austrailian, Chilean, or Namibian as their clocks are based on southern hemisphere sundials that have shadows that move 'backward'.

My son had a party out at our place one spring. Attending were several aerospace engineers. One fellow was walking around holding his phone out at arms length. I asked him what he was doing. He said he had a star and constellation app on there. He was looking for the North Star. I asked for the phone, looked at it and saw the southern cross. I started laughing and told him he had the Southern Hemisphere on there . I turned him around, showed him Polaris and several other features of the night sky. He was much obliged and we had a good laugh and a shot of Johnny Walker. Later he told my son how much fun he had at the party with the old guy showing him the stars. Lots of those city guys had never seen the Milky Way. But they buy good whiskey and premium beer.
