Big warning sign if the retailer does not offer a warranty or a three day return privilage on the Railmaster. Just because the jeweler is located in a wealthy part of town, does not mean they are honest.

Agreed, I keep kicking myself for not seeing Oscar play live at the Toronto International Jazz Festival, considering we was not a well man, Oscar could still play a mean piano during his last...
Good question, I thought Brooks Brothers would have their first location up in Yorkville. I think at this point they would be a "Destination" retailer. I would come in on the GO train from Oakville to shop on Saturday because I would have more time. If Brooks Brothers down the road if they have success with their retail beach-head and expand to say Bloor-Yorkville, Yorkdale and Sherway Gardens then you will see a dropoff in weekend traffic but they have not been open on...

Love to but I have not got around to document the collection yet, it's on my to do list. As for Noodlers ink, I have yet to have problems with the ink, I have even Baystate Blue in a beater midnight blue 51 aerometric and it writes really really nice. I...
Congratulations on your aquisition of your Parker 51, it looks to be in great shape. As the proud owner of 16 Parker 51s from early 1940s Vacumatic fillers to Mark III aerometrics, I found Diamine ink to be a really good option. I use their Imperial Blue, Sapphire Blue and Blue Black. I am also partial to Noodlers Midnight Blue for a blue black ink. Enjoy it in good health. Cheers Bill
Go with the power reserve Jazzmaster Viewmatic or the Seiko Spirit from Japan if you are on a budget.

Another part of my youth passes away, Thank you Mr. Hughes for capturing what it was like to be suburban teen in 1980's North America and with a cool soundtrack too. I think my favourite teen movies from hime were Ferris Beuller's Day Off, 16 Candles and the Breakfast Club. Of his later work like Planes, Trains and Automobiles and I think Uncle Buck top it for me.
