Having a recent clear-out I sold two Parker fountain pens and a Parker propelling pencil (remember them?) on Ebay to a writing implements collector in Hamburg. Funny what folk collect but he was happy and I certainly was  Smiley

This blog entry seems to have struck a chord with quite a few people. 15 shares and many comments.

Oddly enough, none defending him.

Today's Blog is about how little we actually know about William Shakespeare and how we will (mostly) be forever forgotten in a few short years.

It's a small world. My great(x11) grandfather (Michael Hare who was also a glover) knew Shakespeare's father (they sat on the same jury in Stratford in 1586).

Tough yet mostly fair.  Not sure I'd call 1975 "shortly before he died", but I'm nit-picking.
