@JohnPhilpin Interesting. Unlike most classics for which Cliff Notes (or Spark Notes) are available, most business books can easily be condensed to 10-minute summaries and not lose any information. :)

@jack @amit Those are beautiful. They are works of art, but, at the same time, reflect his day-to-day experience and thoughts. There are times I wish I could add simple sketchnotes to my journals, but have always found it easier to deal in text. Maybe I have to up my game?

@petebrown I'm sure you are correct in this case. Still, this isn't the only time I've seen journaling done like that. There are blogs that show the same tendency. It looks more like scrapbooking to me than journaling. Still, I can't knock it just because I don't understand it. It's just different than what I do.

@Miraz Yes. It's called Shingrix here and it's two shots 2-6 months apart. Supposed to be really effective.

@Miraz Just got my first of two shingles vaccine shots too. My arm was sore for 3 days. I usually don't react like that.

@garciabuxton I've been receiving in the hand for 50 years. I can count on one hand the number of people in our parish who elect to receive on the tongue. My son's parish in San Antonio, on the other hand, has many more. As a Eucharistic minister, I prefer to have folks receive in the hand -- less of a chance of a slip up. :)

@garciabuxton My wife and I gave up the hand-holding thing at the Our Father quite some time ago during the H1N1 scare. Our parish is big on it though, as is my father's parish in Florida. There's really no ceremonial reason to do it. However, when in Rome ...

@sgtstretch I was impressed with kon-peki. It is a beautiful shade. It will likely become my EDC blue. The take-sumi is a pretty standard black and I'll use it likewise . The kiri-same is a nice medium gray. I have some colorverse inks coming tomorrow in more interesting colors.

@schuth Sterling Hall and Van Hise. Nice. I spent a few semesters in that lecture hall.

@greghiggins yep. Don’t even get me started about Yelp restaurant reviews. Some pretty self-important folks there.

@manton your reply would make a great opening line for a dystopian fiction story. 😎

@sarcassem πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

@Miraz Happy Birthday!

@Gabz That's what I do, but I've found that I rarely read later no matter how I store them. Better to just read them now. 😎

@garciabuxton I took this as a challenge and bought my own bag this evening. Results will be posted. 😎

@garciabuxton I don't see why not. 😎

@kitt Nice!

@simonwoods I haven't seen the backlash either, probably for the reason that my twitter feed is pretty lean. I have absolutely no problem with subscriptions for software that I use every day. Fantastical was an easy choice.

@ddykstal Shameless plug. The book is available on Amazon. He's also written several about gardening in Florida and caring for pollinators.

@kaa I know. I have this thing about matching pens with their ink colors. You can see the Kaweco red ink in the background. I have a couple of Pilot Metropolitans I use for playing with inks, but I have only a small collection so far.

@ChrisJWilson Yes. I've tried the Tomoe River Kanso Sasshi booklets from JetPens, Leuchtturn1917, an Eccolo World Travelerand several Rhodia notebooks so far. Next up is an Midori MD A5 Journal. So far, I much prefer the Rhodia for fountain pens. I find Tomoe River paper beautiful, but too fussy for fountain pens. I like to use it with pencils.

@danielpunkass I loved that book as a kid. Read it to my son too. He’s 31 now. 😎

@pratik @bix Huh. I never thought to look there. It took a bit to find, and it does appear to be settable by library, but 21 days it is!

@jack @helgeg I just switched from the Leuchtterm using a modified bullet journal format to the Hobonichi for this year. I'll carry over my mods to the Hobonichi. They'll work there as well. I back it up with OmniFocus for depth and a Rhodia Webbie for daily journaling. When the webbie runs out I'm moving to an A5 Midori MD notebook just because.

@garciabuxton Excellent choices. Not sure what mine are yet.
