I discovered this triangular pencil amongst my other pencils. It is an oddity, and I have no idea whence it came. The word “hardware” is written on one side), KINGDONS on a second, and Andover 65005 (an old form of telephone number if it’s a UK one) on the third.

So, it appears to advertise a hardware shop called Kingdons, located in Andover, Hampshire. The shop name is not coming up on a Google search, which suggests that it closed down or was taken over years ago.

I have no idea how this pencil came to be in my house! I have only been to Hampshire once within the last 40 years, and I would not have picked up this pencil there. Nobody who has visited my house in the past 30 years has spent time in Hampshire, as far as I know. All I know is that it must date from the 1970s at latest to have the telephone number written like that.

Or, maybe there’s a pencil fairy…

Flower discovery of the week. I just listened to a podcast that talked about meconopsis or Himalayan Blue Poppy and its introduction to England in the early 1900s by explorer Frank Kingdon-Ward. They caused a huge stir because true blue flowers hadn’t yet been introduced and the garden-happy Brits flipped their lids. It grows best in cooler conditions, grows to about four feet tall, and I really want to see one in person. #gardener #gardening #meconopsis #himalayanbluepoppy

Kingdon Shorts Oil, Goes Long Solar Energy as Firm Gains 13%

Kingdon Capital Management turned bearish on crude oil and increased investment in solar companies, as the hedge fund firm gained 13.4 percent in the first half of the year.

Mark Kingdon’s $2.6 billion firm sold some oil company shares in June, added short positions and placed bets that would profit if crude prices fell after OPEC and U.S. producers unexpectedly increased production, according to a July 20 letter sent to investors.

“With the U.S. rig count on the rise and the potential for Iranian volumes to come back on line, the time at which the oil market comes into balance has been pushed out,” the firm said.

Oil relapsed into a bear market in New York as resilient U.S. output, rising OPEC supply and threats to Chinese demand keep a global glut in place. West Texas Intermediate futures dropped 1.5 percent on Thursday to close at $48.45 a barrel. The grade has lost 21 percent in the past six weeks, meeting the common definition of a bear market.

Kingdon increased bets on solar energy, buying a stake in TerraForm Global, a unit of SunEdison Inc. set to go public in the third quarter. It already has a stake in the parent company, whose shares have gained 36 percent this year, and TerraForm Power, another SunEdison unit that owns wind and solar power plants.

Chinese Shares

Overseas, Kingdon sold its Chinese shares trading in Hong Kong in the second quarter, as mainland China stocks tumbled about 25 percent since mid-June, dragging down the so-called H shares. Kingdon told investors it made money in the equities and plans to buy again once prices have fallen to a more realistic level.

Health-care companies represent Kingdon’s biggest position, the letter said, with Horizon Pharma Plc and Anacor Pharmaceuticals Inc. both top five positions.

Kingdon’s performance in the first six months of this year compares with a 1.2 percent gain for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, including reinvested dividends. Hedge funds returned 3.7 percent, on average, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Patrick Clifford, a spokesman for Kingdon at Abernathy MacGregor Group Inc., declined to comment.
