Norman Heckenberg who is the NAWCC correspondent for our local clock chapter & runs the qldclocksgroup <> sent this tidbit of info (and I’ll add the scan from the Australian earlier this week). “By the way, make sure you enjoy the Leap Second at the end of 2008 as there are serious proposals to abolish leap seconds and only have a Leap Hour every six hundred years”.

Happy holidays, safe journeys, see you all in the new year!
