The weather today has been 'orrible and I thought 'roll on tomorrow'. The post arrived and today was First day of Issue for the Royal Mail 'Ian Fleming's James Bond' issue. The weather cleared the sun came out and the temperature went up! No doubt about it, we produce the best stamps in the world. Yes, I know the service is lousy and technologically, e mailing has to be the answer. You still can't beat writing, sending and receiving 'snail mail'. Their stamp production is brilliant and the sevice they offer us collectors is brilliant. Click onto my Royal Mail web site link (see the right hand list) to see the latest issues and the service they offer in the price of buying a stamp or two.
During the constant refurbishment of my house. One of the things added during the staircase and landings stage was to wire in some emergency lighting; it ensures the staircase is lit when the power fails, putting the house in darkness. Yes, you've guessed it; about 1255, out went all the power supply. Only for about 5 minutes and everything was backed up on the computer. Suprisingly there are still some clocks that have to be reset, so off I rambled to put 'em right, while I remembered.
oops got a text message.... It's Marina and Gregorio in Amsterdam, I told them to watch the canals and stay away from the cigarettes there!
