Radio Show; Series 1, episodes 3, 5 and 7 Catchphrases: Bernard is adamant that he isn’t responsible for her disability, often telling guests of his innocence even if he hasn’t been asked, implying that he had been responsible for her disability. In the first sketch in which he appears, Bernard invites a young actor, who has written to him, Christian Coulson over to his flat. He then attempts to seduce him, implying that he is homosexual.
This is supported by the fact that he has many photographs of young male actors stuck to his wall. Throughout this sketch, he offers the young man various finger foods. He also says that he found the incident in which his sister lost the use of her legs amusing, and insists that he didn’t cause the accident. In his second sketch, he is visited by his local Meals on Wheels , who are bringing Kitty her daily meal.
When talking about how nice the food was, he talks in the first person before hastily adding: As the lady is leaving, he tells her that the food is “a bit dry” and she catches him in the act of eating the food. In his final sketch, undertakers come to his door to take away the body of Kitty, who has apparently died. However, they then discover she is not really dead and he begs them to “take her anyway”.
Metal nibs have their origins as far back as ancient Egypt and were made of metals like copper and bronze. However, the quality of writing that could be achieved with these pens was inferior to that of reed pens. Metallic nibs were made up through the 18th-century as one-off, craftsman-made luxury items. Metal nibs are also easily manufactured to have different properties for different purposes. Also, they can now be attached to and removed from holders, allowing one to switch between nibs with relative ease.
Pointed nib, flexed and unflexed Pen nibs come in a variety of different shapes and sizes for different purposes but can be split into two main types:
The feed is the piece of black plastic (or ebonite on antique pens) that hugs the bottom of the nib. It might not look like it, but the feed is the most important part of a fountain pen.
Esterbrook Nurses Pen Nurse pens, not purse pens. There is a difference when discussing Esterbrook Pens of the s. Esterbrook also produced a similar looking pen during this period, the Nurses Pen. It looks very similar to the pastel line of pens, but is all white. There actually was a white pastel pen also. I have seen it with white jewels and there may have been other jewels for the purse pen, though I am not certain.
Below, you can see the pen after I took it apart. As with the pastel pens, the plastic tends to be very brittle and one needs to be wary of cracking when working on them. The sac on this one was still attached to the section and usable. I decided to take it off, however and replace it with another size 16 sac. This is the first, and only white pen that I have owned.

SIMON COWELL: A letter to my shallow, reckless, cocky younger self
On second thoughts, don’t answer that. I know exactly how you are feeling. It is the early Nineties and you are frustrated, exhausted and worried sick.

History[ edit ] Early prototypes of reservoir pens[ edit ] An early historical mention of what appears to be a reservoir pen dates back to the 10th century. According to Al-Qadi al-Nu’man d. Leonardo’s journals contain drawings with cross-sections of what appears to be a reservoir pen that works by both gravity and capillary action. Historians also took note of the fact that the handwriting in the inventor’s surviving journals is of a consistent contrast throughout, rather than the characteristic fading pattern typical of a quill pen caused by expending and re-dipping.
While no physical item survives, several working models were reconstructed in by artist Amerigo Bombara that have since been put on display in museums dedicated to Leonardo. Klein and Henry W. Wynne received US patent in for an ink chamber and delivery system in the handle of the fountain pen European reservoir models[ edit ] Deliciae physico-mathematicae, The fountain pen was available in Europe in the 17th century, and is shown by contemporary references.
In Deliciae Physico-Mathematicae a magazine , German inventor Daniel Schwenter described a pen made from two quills. One quill served as a reservoir for ink inside the other quill.
And there are a few things one can do to heighten this pleasure, and its feeling of ritual. Another is improving your handwriting. The nature of the tool requires more skill and attention on your part, but the experience is richer and the result sharper. Fountain pens work by managing the rate at which the ink flows through the pen. When the pen is held at an upright angle, ink from the reservoir is drawn downward by gravity, and goes through the feed and to the nib in a controlled fashion.
Unless air is brought into the reservoir to replace the ink as it is used, a vacuum will build up that stops the flow.

Well writing this I’m still having a hard time deciding which pen in the parker Archives is the Holy Grail. Maybe one of the Snakes, maybe one of the fantastic mother of pearl and abalone overlays, the “pregnant” Parker? Maybe a Pompeiian brown Duofold or a stub, striped Golden Arrow in blue? Maybe one of the solid gold Vacumatics, Parker 51’s, 61’s, 75’s or Duofolds all on parade?
To each his own fantasy. Dave Ruderman who is the caretaker of the Parker Archives in Newhaven, well to tell the truth i doubt that there would even be any Parker Archives if it hadn’t been for Mr Ruderman. The Parker company in the US bought Manpower in a venture that proved very successful, generating a lot more revenue than the pen division.
A group of directors for Parker in the UK decided to try a takeover. It was all or nothing, according to Malcolm Troak in his book Pen to Paper.
Profile: The Parker Vacumatic
It is time for another pencil post to break up the fountain pen stuff…though they are all related. These pencils were sold to match the corresponding Vacumatic 51 in both barrel color and cap design. Here is the photo of the pencil before I had a chance to clean and polish it. The twist mechanism works perfectly and the eraser and lead supply are full.
Some sources indicate that the model was produced as far back as , there’s even a dating in the official Parker archives that states that one of the Victories in there was manufactured in This is however highly unlikely, for several reasons. First of all the Victories were manufactured in the UK only and it is highly unlikely that Parker and the Valentine Pen Company, which was later to become the UK Parker factory, had started their co-operation that early.
Secondly the name Victory indicates that the production was in line with the war effort, but by even if Hitler had begun his world domination planning, the war was still four years away. Thirdly most Victory pens have gold nibs clearly marked with an “N” to denote that they were made in Newhaven, an imprinting that begun only in Parker had had a subsidiary in the UK since at least , as shown by old ads. First there was only marketing and a selling force.
The setup worked fine, until World War II, when shipping became increasingly more risky. Everything was salvaged by divers and painstakingly cleaned by the Parker workers, but the vulnerability was evident. Furthermore Parker had recently been evicted from the prominent address of Bush House in London, since the government needed the facilities for wartime BBC radio transmissions. Parker were offered new premises in the then more run-down district of Grosvenor Gardens.
Parker were not happy with this change and decided to try to find a local manufacturing solution for the European market. Some sources indicate that Parker already from time to time had had a co-operation with the Valentine Pen Company, in Newhaven, starting in the late ‘s.
