Ruling, single-handed.

I sometimes make notes on the back of my hand, using a ball-point pen. When I do this, it may be:

(a) Because I don't have paper handy
(b) Because I want the information available without having to fish out and read a paper note
(c) Because I don't want to forget something ("wife's birthday - call Aston Martin"), and having it there on the back of my hand will act as a reminder.

The problem arises, though, if I have several things written on the back of my hand. It can end up looking messy, disordered and frightfully inelegant.

But, thanks to those clever little men at MaxCo., untidy hand-note woes begone!! Our HandyStamps can be used to print a neat series of lines, a grid, or a complete table on the back of your hand, into which information can then be written by the usual birotic means.

For versatility, we recommend our simple 5 or 10-line stamps. If your demands are more complex, a variety of table formats (ranging from 4 x 8 grids up to 8 x 12) is available. And for a particularly complex schedule, a full week-calendar stamp (with day headers across the top, and 2hr timeslots vertically) will accommodate your needs.

Inkpads are available for use with our HandyStamps, in a choice of colours (black, blue or red) and in three grades of delibility (in, semi-, and completely).

       I've gone back to using my Filofax now (I had never strayed too far from it though - only in terms of most of last year). I found an unused 2006 Filofax diary in the attic, which happens to be usable as a 2017 diary, and that prompted me to use the Filofax again.

       I use old library index cards. They're plentiful and easy to carry.

       King Balor is the legendary one-armed king of Elves, but he managed to keep ruling, single-handed.   

       Bit like Odin, why did these old supernatural folk always seem to lose a body part? Sheer carelessness I say.

       There is only one good reason for single handed ruling, and it is this;   

       ...a camel is a horse designed by committee.

       "He has an odd tattoo on the back of his hand. Four evenly spaced lines. I wonder what cult that..."

       Ian, you hipster yuppie.

       I didn't even know you could still by Filofices.

       Good griefness! I've just noticed that the Wikipedia page on "Filofax" is illustrated with an open Filofax belonging to none other than our very own [Ian Tindale]!

       Aha, It is not that one I'm using, it is the brown leather Hampstead one. I should suggest that one as a typical photo, as it is more typical of the thing (plus I'd forgotten about that photo).

       Yes, you'll probably claim you've forgotten about those videos too... you know, the ones you made when you were young and just starting your career, and you needed the money ? Yes, THOSE videos...

       Hell, mine are collectors items. Since you're a Halfbaker, I'll send you one for just the cost of postage.
