Happy Cinco de Mayo and a little history
Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.
And the Auburn/Gray Designs Mayan Calendar Clock
With the total resign of our open face clocks completed, our next decision was what next, well? How about color just for the sake of color. Functional art and a contemporary look with lighter recyclable materials and a new none intrusive mounting system for our new Quartz Wall Clocks. www.auburngraydesignes.com/OpenCart/
Now Lighter, and non intrusive to walls and back on ETSY
Lighter means that we have achieved one of our original goals, That our wall clocks are non intrusive and do not require you to make a hole in your wall with either a screw a nail or a anchor that may need to be repaired later. By using existing technology we were able to develop a mounting system that is both secure and non invasive to walls and still allows for the clock to be easily removed and reattached to your wall for battery replacement and time changes. Placement of the clock is quick and easy without the need to make a hole and the clock can be moved just has easily without leaving any evidence such as holes or residue on your wall.
Non intrusive means that Auburn/Gray Designs wall clocks can be used in places where you do not want damage your wall or where conventional wall clocks cannot, such has the office or a dorm room, or any place where putting holes in walls is not permitted or feasible because of wall material such has plaster modular wall board or brick.
With the new lighter base material and the non intrusive mounting system we can now offer low cost, low impact, and easy to place promotional clocks the can be placed by a sales representative in seconds without damaging the clients wall. Limited run, custom designed, and sized clocks to promote your business or origination.
Lighter also means less costly shipping in both an economic and ecological sense. We can now offer Free shipping in the lower 48 states and reduced shipping cost everywhere else, and this also reduces our carbon foot print. The new material used to fabricate the clocks structure besides being lighter can also be recycled. All excess materials from the manufacturing of Auburn/Gray Designs wall clocks is now being recycled.

There is an epidemic that has caused 18,893 deaths last year and this epidemic is heroin, and this number does not include deaths from prescription opioid abuse. There is a war on drugs but like most wars the body count only increases. Ohio based Kroger stores have made the decision to make Naloxone an opiate blocker that is used by paramedics and first responder across the America to save lives available over the counter. “We want families dealing with addiction to know that they can count on having the drug available in the event that they need it,” Jeff Talbot, Kroger vice president of merchandising, said in a statement. I applaud this company that decided it was time to take a stand..
One hundred years ago Albert Einstein hypothesized gravitational waves, ripples in space and time. Scientists said they first detected the gravitational waves last Sept. 14. They said the waves were the product of a collision between two black holes 30 times as massive as the Sun, located 1.3 billion light years from Earth. The scientific milestone was achieved using a pair of giant laser detectors in the United States, located in Louisiana and Washington State, capping a long quest to confirm the existence of these waves. The two laser instruments, which work in unison, are known as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). They are able to detect remarkably small vibrations from passing gravitational waves. This usher in a new way to explore our universe to hear the cosmos.
They heard two black holes go bump in the Night.
