COCKS AND CLOCKS

The accurate measurement of time has been pursued by humans for ages. There was a time, just before I were a lad, that a cock crowing would have been my wake up call and the sun sinking would have told me to slow down and eventually sleep.

The navigation of the oceans was very hit and miss, until a decent chronometer had been invented.


Now we have radio controlled clocks in our homes which are accurate to a degree that is VERY accurate.

We can also measure the passing of time in other ways …..

My favourite method though is to see where unexpected hair growth has appeared, and to measure the size of my ears ……..
