We're well into that long dark tunnel of late autumn now, going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark.  I do like the extra time to see the stars though, especially during a cold, quiet, morning walk… nice not to have to get up at 4am to see the morning stars.  Don't know about all the extra layers of cloths, though.  Right now I'm watching Saturn making the move to Scorpius, about an hour before sunrise.  December's full moon, the 'Long Night Moon' will wax toward full the evening of the 5th, and reach full just before sunrise on the 6th.  Let's hope for clear skies.

Our annual pre-Solstice sale runs from 'Black Friday' through 'Cyber Monday.'  That's from the 28th through the 1st.  All orders placed with the following code:



will be discounted 21%.  Note that these orders are for Christmas delivery, and not our usual 3 to 4 days turn-around.  You'll have them for Christmas, probably well before Christmas, so not to panic.  Order early, and tell your friends.

We are adding a review feature to our site in the very near future.  To that end we are inviting past customers to post a review at this (currently) hidden page on our site.  We'd like to accumulate a few reviews before going online.  If you'd care to share please do so here:


As a small incentive, any past customer who posts a review before the solstice (December 21 at 6:03 PM EST) will be entered into a drawing for an iPad Air 2 (or equivalent Amazon gift card since I know most of our customers have iPads!)

We would so appreciate your comments.

Thanks everyone.
