Mapping project surfaces on new page


I think I posted about this on the THMMC web site, but figured I would add an entry here in case no one has noticed the new page link in the menu bar. You'll see there is now a link to a page called "Maps & Routes". This is part of an effort I've started to try to document and bring some order to all of the routes that I've put together the past few years. As of this morning, I completed the events I did during 2014 with the Tar Heel MINI Motoring Club, so it seemed like a good time to highlight the new page.

New fountain pen brings several topics together

New Lamy Al-Star fountain pen with violet ink cartridge
The other day I posted about the new Bible reading plan I prepared for 2015 and mentioned that I had one last tool to collect related to that effort. That tool is a new pen that I'm hoping to use for making notes in the Bible and in a notebook as I read through and study the Bible.

Sunday evening I placed an order for a new Lamy Al-Star fountain pen from JetPens. I had started my search looking for a purple fountain pen. There are not a whole lot out there. Lamy has their Al-Star in purple and since I have some Lamy Safari pens, which are essentially the same with the Al-Star being made out of aluminum instead of the Safari's plastic, it seemed like a good choice. I also ordered some violet ink cartridges (one day I'll start filling a converter) to use and went with an Extra Fine nib.
