Mooooo!

This is your chance to own a genuine cow magnet. Fed to cows by vets and farmers to attract the odd metallic parts of cows' diets (they tend to scarf up nails, staples and other stuff with the grass) and prevent bovine traumatic reticuloperitonitis, also known as hardware disease. Used for lots of magnetic lab experiments because they're so handy. In plated alnico, 3" long x 1/2" dia in a rounded tubular shape. Approx a 5-lb pull.

Our compact 4” dia globes have smooth dual axes rotation and measure 5" wide x 6" high overall, including the nice black stand they’re attached to. All show their features in excellent detail. You pick: the Moon globe, showing craters, seas, rilles, valleys, mountain ranges and landing sites of manned and unmanned missions; the Celestial globe with stars, constellations and celestial images by noted German cartographer Karl Harig; the Political globe with an easy-to-read map indicating political borders and capital cities; the Antique-Style Political globe, which is like the Political globe, but old-time looking; or the Satellite globe, which shows the landmasses and oceans of earth as they appear from satellites. A few different globes next to each other make for a really great display, but they’re all nice enough to stand alone.

Prehistoric Poster

So the poster is really brand new. The animals on it are (1) to (190) million years old, and if that doesn't qualify as pre-history, may we stumble over a glyptodon in the dark. Invicta Plastics Ltd. of Leicester, England, printed this 23" x 16-1/2" poster with a colorful diorama to promote their authentic scale models of prehistoric animals. A time line across the bottom lists dates and data for a dozen of them, from the plesiosaur to the woolly mammoth, and compares their sizes to that of a pair of five-year-old children. Post it on the fridge to spark supper discussions, or in the classroom as a source of extra-credit questions for science quizzes.
