Really neat idea. Did you use four quartz clocks inside?

Joe, I haven’t set them up yet. Need to buy batteries next time we go to town. The better question is, why can’t I see all four times at the same time ?

Joe, I still need to purchase the coordinator that sits in the middle of the box and insures all four clocks are in sync.

I like that a lot. How about hanging it from a small low-rpm motor so that it spins around slowly? I am thinking of a little motor like the ones sometimes used with a Christmas tree ornament.

Like another clock motor. Now you are really pushing the envelope.

Great job! Very creative and useful if one’s spouse is travelling to a different time zone (set one side to the new time so you know when to call without waking them up.)

But I have to ask: Is the title a tribute to Rod Stewart? Will you make a companion piece titled “Young hearts beat free”? :)

Thanks for posting.
