- Since we're starting our rainy season I won't need to water the yard for a few months but Living on Less Money blog has lots of additional ideas on ways to keep your water bill down. We try to be frugal in our water use but the rates keep going up so I've been looking for new ideas on how to save even more water.
- Peninkcillin reviewed Private Reserves Tanzanite fountain pen ink and gave it a thumbs up. The shading in one of the pictures looks absolutely amazing, although he/she had used a Q-tip to lay down a lot of ink for the photo.
- Per this article in the UK Daily Mail online, simple activities like reading the newspaper, watching a play and (best of all for my fellow snail mail lovers) writing letters will help to keep our minds active into old age.

- Derrick at "I Still Write" is hosting a giveaway & boy-howdy is it a good one - he's going to giveway some Original Crown Mill stationery also know as "Derrick Dun Lost It", The "catch" is that you have to write him a letter but, hey, this is Original Crown Mill we're talking about. Fountain pen heaven paper! Just make sure your letter gets to him by the day before Christmas. You can find all the details here. Apparently he's going to start selling their stationery and for a decent price. That will be great because not many stores carry it (and the few that do want an arm & a leg for it).
