Beanfest, meh... my family moved here years before I did (10) and it was pretty good, but since then it's gone kinda downhill. At least this year they had a few (3) midway rides, use to have more but the past few years they had none. It's good for people who like old cars, but I think it's the exact same cars every year.
London wise, I almost went this past Sunday actually, my nieces/nephew live in London but don't drive so, were down for Beanfest and I was going to drive them home and drop in, but Saturday I blew my knee out really bad working on my car so, maybe next time.
If I recall, it's that sorta wedge shaped William's downtown London correct? and it's every week?
Goldex... I'll keep that in mind. I'll check out Home Hardware in Grand Bend and if not 100% Ammonia, I will give Walmart a try, though maybe I'll do a 2 birds one stone deal and get it at Walmart in London and check out the pens at the same time.
I don't have much to 'show off'... couple of Parkers, the Noodlers, pair of Lamy Safari's, and two $4 Hero's... which you know what, I swear that Hero 901 writes just as smooth as the $60 Parker. Parker looks better, but, still....
