March 2013 Newsletter, Stories & Announcements...


Mother's day is less than two months away and perhaps that explains the sudden influx of questions regarding Gemstone Globes. Whatever the reason, I find myself dealing with more questions than usual lately, and one in particular seems to have been troubling a lot of Gemstone Globe owners. I thought it might be a nice change to focus this month's newsletter on Gemstone Globes and in particular on some of the more common questions. For those subscribers who don't own a Gemstone Globe, hopefully the information will still prove interesting for you.

The upside down Gemstone Globe...
The original contact from the frustrated Gemstone Globe owner usually starts out with something like; "I bought my globe on a cruise (or estate sale, or inherited it from my grandmother...) and lately I keep finding it lying flat" (or if they ignored the lying flat stage, by now it is actually turning itself upside down). The customer then continues... "It really bothers me that my globe doesn't stay upright like it used to do. What is wrong with my globe and what can I do to fix it?"

I was originally going to send the article as part of this month's newsletter but the large number of images pushed the file size beyond what is reasonable for a newsletter. As a result, I published the article on our World Globe Universe web site where you can access it with the following link. The Upside Down Gemstone Globe article.

This article applies to all Gemstone Globes with a dual axis mount. If your dual axis Gemstone Globe isn't tilting yet, I can almost guarantee that one day it will start. I invite you to take a few minutes to read the article so you will be ready when gravity starts to win...

Even more globe information!
In keeping with the Gemstone Globe focus of this month's newsletter, I would like to recommend a second article that will be particularly valuable if you are considering the purchase of a Gemstone Globe. Regardless of whether you intend to purchase right away, or years down the road, this article will arm you with the knowledge you need to make an informed purchasing decision.

Take a few minutes to learn what to look for in a top quality Gemstone Globe and what to watch out for in lesser quality knockoffs.

An invitation to provide your feedback...

  • Are you finding the information useful, entertaining, a complete waste of your valuable time, or somewhere in between?
  • How does the monthly publishing schedule fit your life? Too often, not often enough, or about right?

  • Are we providing special offers on the right products or is there a different product you are anxiously waiting to see go on sale?
