January brings the opportunity to take note of the passage of time with the end of an old year and the start of the new year. The clock strikes midnight and the year turns over. The modern home is likely to have digital clocks everywhere...on the kitchen range, the smart TV, the microwave, the computer and tablets, and the bedside nightstand. These clocks are lighted and silent. A trip through the May-Stringer House, however, will include the chance to look at timekeepers with beautifully decorated faces and sweeping dials.
