Dear World

I'm going to try and join the typosphere and start blogging.  

Being one of life's collectors the smallest thing can set me off.  If you've got one thing, that's nice.  Two - well, then you've got a spare, just in case; three?  Three! now that's the start of a collection.

I've more telephones than I can shake a stick at, and a couple of weeks ago I realised that I collect typewriters... I went round the house and counted fourteen.   Most of them get used regularly - the one in the kitchen, for instance, is used for keeping a running note of items for the shopping list.  And why not?

During the course of our correspondence I hope to introduce you to some of my collection (which encompasses anything office), and to tell you why it is all important to me.

I hope you're well and keeping out of mischief.  

Pip pip.

PS I've yet to work out how to upload photos - but I shall unleash wonders onto a waiting world when I do.


  1. Welcome to the Typosphere! :D

  2. Welcome to the typosphere! I feel like I am not the newest person around anymore. I like your blog so far, and can't wait to read more.

  3. Thank you Ted and Mark - I have been enjoying the blogs of other people for a while, and wanted to join in. I shall have to get some more posts done... I have plenty of machines to type from.


  4. John, good to see your blog (cool blog name).
    Joining the welcome chorus!

    1. Thank you for your welcome Ton. I've followed your link back to 'I dream lo-tech' - I had not found your blog before, but am now reading it back to the beginning. I share your desire for the low tech world.

  5. I just stumbled on this blog. I hope you post some more in October. I'll add it to my reading list so I know. Welcome!
