Ever wonder why? Now, take a look at Big Ben. Don’t know who he is? Well now, where have you been? Of course, most folks reading this now know well and truly who this old master is. They also know that they do not need to do any physical sightseeing to witness this old sport. You can go on line and just type in the iconic name, and there you go, you can set your own old clock to wait for the pivotal moment when he starts his own countdown and begins to chime.
It is awesome! You have to love old grandfather clocks or mantelpiece clocks to appreciate this much. And doesn’t it remind you of the old countryside? The old antique clocks for sale are doing exactly what those old barnyard roosters never fail to do; wake up the entire neighborhood. Come on now, you fellows, the sun is rising and it’s time to get ready for work. My, my, where would we be without old antique clocks?
Some say, you ask the question still. And where have you been? Haven’t you noticed just how fast modern technology has taken off? Who needs old grandfather tick tocks when we’ve got digital technology? But have you even noticed? Digital technology has its issues. Time won’t always be kept right. Grandfather clocks and mantelpiece clocks and all the other old antiques, including the Big Ben, all keep very good time indeed.
It is a wonderful marvel of ancient technology on which much of today’s digital technologies are based anyhow. It is all designed to keep things precise. Meaning that you never have to rush off late for work. And be back in time to watch and listen how your old clock chimes.
