Magnifique pendule, j'adore !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martine.
Oh I just love that! What a cool thing! (Will it tell me the lottery numbers... cuz I really need those...)
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now THAT would be a clock for everything, Elizabeth! smile

So much technology and wisdom in one clock....what an amazing clock this is.
I love the presentation and it is mind blowing when you think of it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I'm so glad we went back to find this. I still can't believe we knew nothing about it the first time we were there and so totally missed it. Can you imagine having a watch like this??? smile
What an amazing thing!
Ginnie Hart: It really is, Frank! Thanks.

Good heavens this is amazing Ginnie, I wish we had one like this in Bath
Ginnie Hart: It really IS something else, Chris. We totally missed it the first time we were in Lier a few years back, but this time our B&B hostess told us we shouldn't miss it. Totally worth the stop on our way home from Leuven this past December.

What a delightful and interesting clock, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It is, Lisl. You would love to see it in real life!

Astrid is right - I have to know so much - but I can see when you did this image.
Ginnie Hart: It makes you realize how much we DON'T know, Philine, doesn't it! Thank you.

Oh fabulous! I was trying to work out which each dial was showing. I have to say I don't recall ever hearing about "the metonic cycle and the epact" something to research if I ever get some spare time.
Ginnie Hart: The things we DON'T know sometimes amaze me more than the things we do, Alan!
Magnifique !!!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine.

It is a lovely clock, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Lovely and complicated, if you ask me, Ray! smile

Une superbe pendule

Coolest clock EVER, I want one for my birthday smile maybe a little scaled down... sorry for making you cry on my blog post smile
Ginnie Hart: Now, if someone can make a watch out of it, THAT would be cool (though perhaps a bit too big?)! Thanks, Elaine.

Tears are good for cleansing the soul, so never be sorry!
The is THE clock of clocks Ginnie. No digital nonsense with this fantastic machine.
Ginnie Hart: The Mother of all clocks, then! I like that, Chad, because I do believe you're right. They don't make them like this anymore!
I can't see the dial indicating the menstrual cycle Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Good one, Chad. grin
Amazing!
Ginnie Hart: It really is, Tom!
I have never seen such an incredible thing. I want one.
Ginnie Hart: Can you imagine it as a watch, Mary???? smile
What an amazing item, it tells one just about everything.
Ginnie Hart: Just about, Brian. smile Indeed.
> It makes a great shot Ginnie... especially with the black background. Nicely done. My oldest son would go nuts for this as he's crazy about clocks.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. I know a lot of people who would go crazy over such a clock!
An amazing clock Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It defies the imagination, Bill!

So amazing! I love that black background!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. We con't have a lot of control over this template but we DO get to choose white or black for the background, which does come in handy! smile
I like the word "epact", though I don't know what it means. smile
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Larry, isn't it. What they knew back then could put us all to shame.
When can I buy this clock, G?
It's too "handy", better than iWatch.
Ginnie Hart: Can you imagine this as a watch with even half the stuff here, LC! WOW.
i want me one of those Ginnie... just to keep my mind active trying to figure it all out... love your shot and your Wiki description....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I think we'd all be watching this clock/watch all day long, Peter, if we had it anywhere near us!
That is amazingly beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: It still blows my mind, Michael.
