      Hi Derek,

      A survey will be sent on in Mid-September requesting your current address.

      You will also be asked if you want a Northern Hemisphere version as seen on the updates.

      Or a Southern Hemisphere version, where the clock face is assembled with the yellow side at the top.

      Thanks for asking,

      This made me think.. what about us down in the southern hemisphere; we just had winter solstice .. do we hang our clocks upside down when we are down under?

      Amazing! It's rather exciting to think that in a few months the present is going to grace one of my walls. I hope I can decide where to put it by September. :)
