    Default Calendars

    My 2023 calendar has arrived! I splurged and bought the new flintknapping calendar from knapper Derek Mclean. He was a friend and guide on my favourite forums years ago- those forums long since gone. I used to buy a calendar from him every year but stopped for a long time because of the cost of postage- works out at about 45 Australian dollars just for shipping. Anyway- have a look https://www.mcleandesign.com/project/personal-knapping https://www.mcleandesign.com/knapping
    Any of you good people buy calendars relating to your hobbies? JayInOz

    I buy the WoodenBoat calendar every year. It's great wall art for people with a 1-month attention span!

    Too committed to my iPhone calendar app now. But I did make a beetle cat calendar last year for people to download and use as a desktop photo. You can find December's page on the Beetle Cat Sailors page on FB.

    I have my Wooden Boat calendar and several old ones tucked in the desk drawer, for no real reason, I guess. I'm impressed with those flints, Jay! I tried it once but didn't have time to pursue it and now that I'm an old f@rt on blood thinners it looks like a really good way of bleeding out

    No calendars for me.

    I had an interesting couple of people at the museum recently. Two First Nations guys who've been studying stone tool production around the world.
    They'd just come back from a dig in Israel. They were talking about 750,000 year old tools!
    They're gonna help me create a little knapping resource for the education team.

    (I kept referring to Debitage as Decolletage ...... which is very different).

    I was talking with an American anthropologist and told him that I had a piece of flint from a cave in France which had been knapped so many thousand years ago- I forget the number now. He replied that he had a piece of flint from Africa which had been knapped a million years ago by a different species. I couldn't top that JayInOz
