…just arrived in Germany today. Travelled by ferry again, so lots of space for stationery in the boot AE: trunk (just in case you thought of shoes…) 8^)
In the evening my mother called me because pencils were featured on prime time telly…
In the German version of The Million Pound Drop Live, called Rette die Million!, candidates were asked for another name of juniperus virginiana (Virginische Wacholder). The correct answer was pencil cedar (Bleistiftzeder). The candidates lost more than half of their money on this question.
Great to see something pencil related on prime time telly!
More about juniperus virginiana in the blog post Schwanberg and the Pencil Cedar.
The photo of the pencil has been taken from the ZDF TV show ‘Rette die Million!’. I believe that the use of this image falls under “fair dealing” as described by the UK Copyright service.
