The Pen is Mightier...

Whilst I love what can be done with 'old things', I also have a penchant for collecting them in their original state.  In particular antique letters with envelopes.  Some people find it strange that I should read someone else's letter, but it's usually more mystery than not.  I especially love the old English, how strictly and well mannered we once spoke to one another.

Here's a little selection inspired by the writers of yester-year.  Enjoy! mb

Black Gold

Isn't it time you asked where your coffee came from?  I just finished watching Black Gold and it has changed me.  From now on, when I have coffee out, I'm asking.  I'll also be purchasing ONLY fair trade coffee for my home - which shouldn't be a problem given the numerous local options I just found in a quick internet search.

It seems like something so simple to do, yet each of us can make such a difference.  Find out more now by visiting Black Gold and watching the movie.

Now I need a coffee... mb

Thanks so much, Kelley! mb
