     Thats a very cool looking little animal   we don't have squirrels of any kind here 

    Just another instance of Darwin's Natural Selection at work.
    Squirrels would just be too small to bury coconuts for the winter as they do with acorns.  Smiley

     LOL i had never thought about it like that. then again we don't really have a winter, its more of a slight breeze Smiley


    Re: He's Back

    You guys are funny.
    Here's another one of those trees in bloom from a drive to town this (P1000092.JPG4/12) morning.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Thanks Everyone, you're too kind.  Here's one to show that not all our trees are pink.

    Don,

    judging by your choice of watches you might like one of these as well [I don´t have any affiliation with them]:

    Re: He's Back

    Ferdie - WOW, cool clock!
    I can't upload the pic from the internet but have a look at this BOTTA ONE-HAND watch.
    I really want one.

     It put me right off the German version when I read "Es ist zehn nach halb zehn"  Smiley Smiley,  but I really like the styling and can see why the concept got a Red Dot design award. 

    I guess I'd just have to go for the English version. 

    Quanto costa? 

    PS:  Ooops. Should have looked closer at that web-site Ferdie linked to.
    Can now answer my own question:  885.00 Euro.

    Very interesting concept. I am just wondering how silly I´d look figuring ou the exact time to an asking bypasser. On the other hand, everybody´s got their own watch or mobile phone nowadays. Smiley

    That's an interesting point you raise.

    People never ask you if you've got the time or if you've got a light (for a cigarette) any more.

    Yes, the price tag is significant. If you consider the price of art and modern installations that might grace some people´s walls it becomes acceptable again.

    Not that it necessarily applies for my own walls... Smiley


    Re: He's Back

    Trying again to upload a pic of the Botta Uno.  It also comes in a 24 hour face but the lines are too close together for my older eyes.
    Oh, it's 1:46 on the Botta.
    See, you can tell the time with a one-handed watch!

    Re: He's Back

    Actually, I would say 1:47... just kidding.

    Doesn't seem to be any dealer in Canada but the price certainly is right, at about 300 Euros.

    Just f.y.i.  I got my Issey Miyake from this place - they also carry Bottas and I see they ship internationally.  I have no affiliation with them other than buying from them once and being satisfied with my purchase.

    There ya go.  Smiley  You just need to invite that lady to vacation in one of your beach resorts in the Dom Rep for a while and before you know it, you too will have squirrels nibbling your nuts.  Smiley

    PS: Those guys really do look hilarious, don't they? Smiley That pic could be used for one of those "write your own caption" competitions.
