New address and host.

Thanks to some great advice from A, we have found a new home at the current location. The remaining comments went by the wayside, but I think there’s a way around that. At any rate, GoDaddy is very sharp and is hearby an honorary Pencil Friend. So far, I’d definitely recommend them for your hosting and domain registration needs.

If I can find some old jingles from old pencil ads, we could have them uploaded to our host now. Does anyone know where to find those? I’ll get out my dancing shoes and cut a rug. No photos of that, though. Sorry.

Hemingway on pencils (I).


“When you start to write you get all the kick and the reader gets none. So you might as well use a typewriter because it is much easier and you enjoy it that much more. After you learn to write your whole object is to convey everything, every sensation, sight, feeling, place and emotion to the reader. To do this you have to work over what you write. If you write with a pencil you get three different sights at it to see if the reader is getting what you want him to. First when you read it over; then when it is typed you get another chance to improve it, and again in the proof. Writing it first in pencil gives you one-third more chance to improve it. That is .333 which is a damned good average for a hitter. It also keeps it fluid longer so that you can better it easier.”
