A new year, and a good time to consider time ! Now this is a big subject that's managed to elude definition from scholars for time itself, so this is a simple look at clocks doing their job around the world. The clock, oddly enough, is one of human being's oldest inventions, from a vague bit of kit telling the time of year, to the modern day ultra accurate atomic run timepiece. Nowadays, we all take these things for granted, but in the old days, an appointment was a somewhat vague concept. Actually, there's still some parts of the world where that's the case !!
