California King Bedding Cannot Be Interchanged With Standard King Bedding
If you are looking for a great selection of California king bedding, then you have come to the right place. There is a vast selection of online shops offering high quality California king sheet sets. California king beds are the perfect choice for taller people as the mattress is 72" wide and 84" long, 4 inches longer than a standard king bed. You can find all the same wonderful bedding in the California king sizes as you can in the regular king and queen sizes.
When buying bedding for your California king bed, don't buy the standard or "Eastern" king sheets. The flat sheet is interchangeable between the two sizes, but the fitted sheet is not. Always measure your mattress before buying the sheets just to make sure they will fit properly. Look for sheets labeled "California King" or "Western King." They may not always be easy to find, especially if you live in the East, so shopping online may be the best way to find California king sheets. You will need 3 standard pillows or 2 king size pillows to fit across the width of a king bed, so keep that in mind when shopping for pillows and pillow cases.
Having the extra 4 inches of length that a California king bed offers is wonderful, especially if your toes tend to hang over the edge. Another good thing about it is you can use standard king duvets, comforters, blankets, and pillows. This makes it much easier for you when you need to purchase new bed linens and don't want to spend that little bit extra that the California king size bedding commands. When buying comforter sets or sheet sets for a California king bed, you will get 2 king size pillow cases or pillow shams and an extra long sheet set and/or comforter.
Most linen stores only carry standard king size bed linens, but you may find California king linens in specialty shops at a higher price of course. Save yourself some time and money and check out what the internet has to offer for California king bed linens and you may be pleasantly surprised!

The Benefits of Quartz Cuckoo Clocks
Unlike windup cuckoo clocks, which require rewinding every one, two or eight days before, quartz cuckoo clocks use a more modern timing mechanism, drawing power from batteries and running continuously until the batteries run dry. Battery cuckoo clocks run for approximately one year on a new set of batteries give or take a little, depending on the type of battery used and the amount of animated movement built into the clock.
A Look at Cuckoo Clock Movement
The inside mechanics of cuckoo clocks maintain virtually the same design since the day they were first created in the Black Forest of Germany. While the parts are now sometimes made out of metal and plastic instead of the all wood versions that started it all, the weights and counterbalance mechanisms that help them perform accurately and to imitate the sound of the cuckoo bird have not changed much in almost 300 years.
