OK.  You got me.   :P

As the bookkeeper for my company, I mark an X on every other Wednesday to remind me to send payroll. 
I started marking my new NSF calendar, continuing from last year's NSF calendar only to find out in mid February that I have been marking Thursdays.  ::) 

In 54 years I have never had a calendar where the week starts on Monday.  Is this normal elsewhere?

It will be interesting to see how many time this will screw me up in 2016. :o :o

Apparently this is fairly standard in Europe, and was requested several times for this year's calendar. I did also make a Sun-Saturday version, but it's not in the first post of this thread (and not very helpful now that you have the Mon-Sun version):

Yes, mon-sun calendar format is the ISO standard for week definition. It is used in slavic regions, in Europe and also in Chinese calendar.

For those of us who are procrastinators, you can still order this. (I edited first post to include both calendar links) and here's a code that might save you a bit. expires TODAY though.

I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

Hi,

What type of paper are the pages made of ? I mean if they are too glossy it is difficult to write notes with an ordinary pencil. I prefer the not coated or recycled type.

100 lb gloss, but not with the high gloss UV coating. No problem writing on mine with a ballpoint or pencil.

Thank you for the information, Bob.  I will be more mindful next year.   8)

Just ordered mine, one for me and one for my rocketry club.

I used a space calendar last year to track orbital launches. However, this year I'm having trouble finding rocket stickers.  The stickers were silly kiddy rockets and UFOs last year, but I was wondering if anyone makes more authentic launch vehicle stickers for the world's current space fleet. I suppose rubber stamps would work as well.

Not that I know of, but you could always print some on blank labels. (If you go that route, Id be interested in the images you choose. Rocket photos? Logos? Patches?)

Might need a special sticker to track landings as well :)

Hmm. Thinking aloud:

Redbubble does custom die-cut vinyl stickers, but it'll be quite pricey compared to mass-produced stickers. Meant more for sticking in a window.

Precut oval stickers may be cheaper and easier, but be prepared to tweak the template because small stickers don't leave much margin for printer registration errors (practice on plain paper).

Not a customer, but small labels seem to be tricky to find. Some possibilities:
http://www.onlinelabels.com/OL889.htm
http://www.onlinelabels.com/OL5400.htm
http://www.onlinelabels.com/OL2050.htm
http://www.onlinelabels.com/OL1930.htm

They have templates on their website, and look to run about $20 + shipping for a 100 sheets.

A custom rubber stamp will be about $20 too, and easy to use. You're restricted to one color and fairly simple artwork. http://historicspacecraft.com/Rockets_Atlas.html might be a good place to start; images seem to be under CC BY-NC. Simplify #11 a bit and thicken the lines....

Nice to see my photography forming the basis of the render for December 2016. I know that view quite well... ;)
