That sounds great. Do you know where it can be purchased?


message 6: by Lois (new)

Lois Merritt (ov_099) I got my particular one off of Amazon, but it was sold by ComputerGear, so it might also be on their actual site as well. But you can also find scores at Cafe Press or Etsy.

Dan's | 32 comments [I simply love the astrolab watch..!]


message 10: by Kenny (new)

Kenny Chaffin (kennychaffin) I like it, but it looks a bit 'cheap' - particularly the band - I wonder if it would last very long?


message 11: by Dan's (new)

Dan's | 32 comments the wrist band, well I was seriously thinking about another to replace it with.! I suppose this is what happens when they 'rush' stuff in the market, or whenthey try to gain more profit..!

Now I am re'hashing certain 'children's books' 2 in particular have made it to the scope of my interest! [ But then I seriously doubt my niece's 8 and 9 years old will have a chance to find it interesting.. at this stage!]
the rest I dismissed soleley from the covers.. oouff. maybe I will try again laterz

Jim (jimmaclachlan) | 676 comments Fun ideas, Betsy. The 3D printing pen looks kind of fun/silly. It's pretty amazing to me how far that's come in so short a time. We've got a real 3D printer at work now. It's saved us a lot of money. We make sound systems for motorcycles & the cost of one-off castings was out of this world. I think the printer paid for itself by creating less than half a dozen items.

I got all the boys quad copters with a video camera in them this year.

For only $70, they take amazingly good videos & are pretty stable. My oldest gave me a great tour of his 2 acre place with his.

Kenny Chaffin (kennychaffin) Wow, that's a great idea Jim!

How about a first edition (1543) Vesalius for your science fanatics?

http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015...

It's really sad that the Royal Institution is so broke it has to sell these books, but it allows me to dream about buying one. Of course, that's all I can do ... dream.


message 16: by Jim (new)

Jim (jimmaclachlan) | 676 comments That's sad.

Candice | 43 comments I absolutely love Cognitive Surplus. You can sort by discipline or gift type. I’ve ordered notebooks, glasses and bags and they are always professionally made. Great for gifts for yourself or others!

Interesting! We were thinking of getting something similar for our oldest grandson, but it's for kids.

Unfortunately, he's a packrat & they have a very small house, so we decided they didn't need the dunnage.
