About: In today's puzzle we're featuring the Prague astronomical clock (Prague orloj) - a medieval astronomical clock located in the capital of the Czech Republic.

The clock mechanism is composed of three main components: the astronomical dial, representing the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky and displaying various astronomical details; "The Walk of the Apostles", a clockwork hourly show of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures striking the time; and a calendar dial with medallions representing the months.

Dice likely originated in the ancient Middle East. One of the oldest known dice games was excavated from a Mesopotamian tomb, dating to the 24th century BC. Unlike modern dice, the numbers on the opposite sides of Mesopotamian dice were consecutive numbers rather than numbers that add up to seven. Common dice are small cubes most commonly 1.6 cm (0.63 in) across, whose faces are numbered from one to six, usually by patterns of round dots called pips. Opposite sides of a dice traditionally add up to seven. Dice are suitable as gambling devices for games like craps and are also used in non-gambling tabletop games.

It's time to mow the lawn. So grab the lawn mower and let's go. The first lawn mower was invented by Edwin Budding in 1827 in Thrupp, just outside Stroud, in Gloucestershire. Budding's mower was designed primarily to cut the grass on sports grounds and extensive gardens. It took ten more years and further innovations to create a machine that could be drawn by animals, and sixty years before a steam-powered lawn mower was built. Modern rotary push mowers are powered by internal combustion engines or electricity. Corded electric mowers are limited in range by their trailing power cord, which may limit their use with lawns. While considered antiquated in modern times, the original type of push-powered reel mowers are still available.
