A New Insignia and Garage Typing

I like to keep the shop nice and neat.

This is the coolest Underwood Insignia I have seen.
I noticed on at least one other blog an insignia like or near like this one.  I searched before making my post and did not find it.  There is a similar one on Machines of Loving Grace, but it does not have the Speeds The World's Business encircling the representation of the earth.

I like the action of my Underwoods best of all of my typewriters.  When I first started this blog I only had a Hermes 3000 and a Smith-Corona Classic-12.
Since the Hermes is quite revered in the typosphere I chose to head the blog with Hermes.  After a 2 years of the same I decided it is time for a change, and a much neater logo.  I wonder why Underwood went away from this one.

Another Fountain Pen Friendly Notebook

$4.99 @ the local Super Target

The original notebooks

Sorry for the sloppy writing.  I've been drinking too much coffee and that makes me shaky.

Available in the USA @ Amazon

Typical of Blogger.  The link was placed under the first section of the typecast.  However Blogger with its usual crap placed in mid-page even though it was correct in the preview.  Rearranging things after a post with Blogger is sucky at best so the link remains out of place. 

Blogger is free and I appreciate that, but it would be nice if it worked.  I have other sites and thought about moving this blog to my radio site.  It takes so long to build a typecast on Blogger that I generally do not want to use even more time to migrate my blog to my radio site.  One day that may happen.  For now the blog will stay on Blogger.

No new typriters, but a new mascot

Standing guard on the sidewalk.  Non-venomous.

Don't bother me.  I'm watching for bad guys.

Eastern Rat Snake.  Eats lizards, frogs, rats and various small rodents.

Two Years and Counting

My normally sloppier than this desk.  I really do type with small typewriters alongside the PCs.
Generally it is hard to see the surface of my desk.  I generally have a bit more on it.  Recently I replaced the 24 channel mixer with a smaller 8 channel and put the processors all in a small rack under my radio desk beside my servers and put the CD/DVD duplicators in church.
