What Time Is It? Your Barking, Meowing, Or Singing Clock Will Tell You

I'm always on the hunt for animal lover gifts, so naturally I was wooed by these animal clocks made by Mark Feldstein Products.  Each clock represents an array of 12 breeds of dogs, cats, or birds and every time the big hand hits 12, you get the bark, meow, or song of the breed of the hour.  These clocks are sure to surprise and please kids and adults alike.

For the uninitiated, Bento is a type of lunch-time meal which consists of rice, meat, and vegetables, the whole array arranged together in a box. It's a fairly traditional dish, often prepared for school and work lunches; it's also available at most restaurants which serve Japanese food.

Father's Day.  When you get to my father's age, it becomes quite difficult to find something original as a gift.  Ties, while quite nice, are well-overplayed and no longer an option.  Take him out to lunch?  Sure... but again, not the most original of ideas.  Movies are a good idea... but unless it's a drafthouse, it's really not that special.
