A Glass of Wine in memory of National Pencil Day


A glass of wine in memory of Hymen Lipman, who on this day in 1858 patented a pencil with an attached eraser. Where would we all be today without such a device? How many of us in the past have turned round from our wooden desks at school and said “anyone got a rubber”! (No sniggering, that’s what we called it when I was a lad).

Anyway, today is National Pencil Day, March 30th, and I toast it with my glass of Garnacha/Tempranillo from The Wine Society remembering the last time I used a pencil was probably 1963. Cheers to Mr Lipman.
