Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln!

35458401700_29e1af9dea_bWhen Abraham Lincoln was upset with someone, he would write a “hot letter” and put it aside, unsigned.  He would pour out his anger into the letter – but not send it.  By acknowledging his anger on paper, he was able to then step back and process the situation.  It also helped that the tools to write a letter were not always at his finger tips (a pen, ink and paper or a secretary).  Today, with social media always at our finger tips, we are far to quick to practice the same exercise via the keyboard, but are far too hasty in posting our thoughts.  I think the world would be a better place if we all just took a pause before clicking send.  Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln!

“Signed, Sealed, Delivered”

Anyone else a huge fan of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” – or as they are known to the fandom, #The POstables ?  Tonight is the night that we get a new “episode”!

If you don’t know about the show, it is about a group of four employees at the Denver post office dead letter division, that track down the recipients of undeliverable mail.

I’m popping the popcorn and getting out the Yoohoo!

Thursday Link Love: The iPenBox

Now here’s a subscription I could get behind – the iPenBox.  Every box has a fountain pen, paper / journal, ink sample(s), plus other fun products (like other types of pens)!  Can you imagine what my pen drawer would become?  I already have a problem with pens – I take a box of pens wherever I go, just so that I will have the “right” pen for whatever the situation requires.  I have a spice rack full of ink bottles.  And don’t even get me started on my collection of nibs.  Ok, maybe when you’re a hoarder, a monthly subscription like this is not healthy…
