    #2 @Pamela L. Williams Just wondering if you've had your eyes checked recently. I have the same problem, and found out I have early cataracts, not enough for surgery YET, but enough to impair my night vision.

    Well now I know who to thank! I have difficulty driving at night, oncoming cars play havoc on my vision. Instead of looking up when at an oncoming car I use the reflectors to keep me between the lines. It's one reason I don't drive a lot at night outside of where the streets are lit, but sometimes my early morning commutes are in darkness. You either know a lot about your region or you're learning a lot doing research for these posts! Either way; it is interesting reading.

    Just amazing @William Rakow! I was really surprised when I read that it consists of more than 400 hand-carved wooden pieces.

    I just love this clock, @William Rakow. Pity that pesky autocorrect keeps kicking in! 😥

    A handgun that can be folded up so it bears a striking resemblance to a smartphone is coming out later this year. The .380-caliber derringer, which will cost around $395, comes with two bullets loaded into two barrels. When folded into the locked position, the trigger and trigger guard are concealed by the grip, giving it the size, shape, and general appearance of a smartphone inside a case. It even comes with a clip, so it can be attached to a belt when folded.With one click of the safety it opens and is ready to fire.
