His Nibs.com update --
Closing for vacation
June 24th, 2007

Just a quick announcement that His Nibs will
be offline and out of the palace (exploring
his realm of Pendom)            from
Wednesday, June 27th (last shipping day is
Tuesday the 26th) until Saturday, July 7th.

Please feel free to order or email, and we'll
reply in sequence as quickly as possible upon
our return.

I also won't be available today, Sunday the
24th, as I'm off to see the 'other' His
Nibs (see the attached photo I found!) --
or as I've always thought of him, the
Master...Bob Dylan.

The new July, 2007 issue of Pen World
International has a brief profile of His
Nibs. Please read the 'interview' knowing
that my good friend Stephen Herman and I are
always joking with each other and that he
paraphrased many of my 'responses' with
tongue firmly-in-cheek. For one
thing...calling it "ping pong"!?!?!?!?!?!?  smile.gif

On the blog....Beatles blast for beer
burglar...and a second story....Girl,
2, becomes member of Mensa

I wish everyone a safe and joyous 4th!!!!

The 'other' His Nibs

I found this several years ago when doing a
Google image search on 'His Nibs'!



A customer sent me a copy of the original
image years ago -- sans any reference to Bob
Dylan. The original was an advertisement used
on produce boxes, which said:

Selected Vegetables
Produce of U.S.A.

Burnett & Burnett
Growers - Packers - Shippers

Salinas and El Centro, California

On the blog...the Beatles' judge & a Mensa tot

"A judge sentenced a Beatles-loving thief by
quoting 42 of the band's song titles in his
verdict.

Andrew McCormack, 20, had been asked what
sentence he thought he should get for
stealing beer, he wrote: "Like The Beetles
say, Let it Be."

But he had clearly come up against the wrong
man in Montana's Judge Gregory Todd, reports
the Daily Mirror.

Judge Todd replied: "'Hey Jude', 'Do You Want
to Know a Secret'? The greatest band in
history spelled its name B-e-a-t-l-e-s.

and...

"A two-year-old girl from Hampshire has
become the youngest ever female member of
British Mensa.

Georgia Brown, from Aldershot, Hampshire,
astounded experts by scoring 152 in an IQ
test - putting her in the top 2% of the
population for her age.

Psychologist Joan Freeman, who tested
Georgia, said she thought the toddler could
have scored even higher but needed a nap
after 45 minutes of work.
