Jeff Eats recently told you guys (8/3/14 -Medicare & Food!) that effective October 1, 2014 I’m going on Medicare.

For some reason, Son Jeff Eats and Daughter Jeff Eats “found” this news hilarious and every week since have- had “something” delivered to me-that is meant to remind me as to how old-I’m getting! Those two Eats are real peaches!


This morning Jeff Eats received a shipment of Pilot Varsity Disposable Pens ordered through The manufacturer describes these pens as…

“Enjoy an old school writing style with this fashionable disposable fountain pen. Each pen in the Pilot Varsity Disposable Fountain Pen Assorted Ink 7-pack Pouch features a retro style barrel with a real fountain pen nib. Other useful features include an advanced liquid ink system for smooth writing and a visible ink supply so you’ll never be caught off guard.”

Nothing for nothing, these pens are dynamite. There are 7 different ink colors. Figure, they cost 2 bucks a piece–and it’s really enjoyable writing with a fountain pen.


Jeff Eats thought you guys might enjoy hearing about an “old” thing made “new.” You can check the pens out at By the way, Staples and other big box retailers stock the “pen”-so it must have a pretty big retail following.

Finally to Son Jeff Eats and Daughter Jeff Eats…ballpoint pens had “already” been invented by the time I started school, so nice try! That said, all of the wooden desks at PS 179 where I attended kindergarten through 6th grade- had holes drilled in them where inkwells were placed (by the kids who came before me)…and if you don’t know what an inkwell is, tough!!!! Go GOGGLE “it” on your new Apple Watches.

    I remember those wooden desks with the inkwell holes in them. By the time I started school in Brooklyn we all like you used ballpoint pens. We all had pens and pencils. The girls had pencil cases and most of the boys had plastic pen holders in their shirts’ breast pockets.

    Very cute, love the picture of the fuses. Another item from a bygone era. I remember my dad using either a 15 or 20 in our Queens apt. back in 1950s. When you think about it things sure have changed in the past 60 years or so.
    Those pens sound interesting.
    Next time Im in Office Depot I’m going to check them out.

    Medicare is great. There are great doctors on my plan. I had robotic surgery in May and the bill would have been about $70,000 but all I had to pay was $395.
