Pink LAMY Safari

My wife got her 2009 Limited Edition Pink LAMY Safari Fountain Pen today!  She was excited!  I was too!  She bought it with an M nib but we were worried that it might be a little wide for her writing.  I have a blue Safari with an EF nib so I swapped it out for […]

Impossible CAPTCHAs

I hate CAPTCHAs even though I use them on my site.  I understand why we need them.  My spam stopped once I installed it. When I come across some that are impossible or interesting, I take a screen shot of them.  (On a Mac: CMD-Shift-4 and drag the mouse over the area you want to […]

The Goulet Pen Company

Before I ordered my Pilot Custom 742 FA, I was looking for a flex pen.  I wanted a Falcon and I also wanted to try the Noodler’s Ahab. I ordered a demonstrator (clear) Noodler’s Ahab flex pen with some Noodler’s Salmon ink last week.  I ordered from The Goulet Pen Company. It was my first […]
