Some stamps that me and Vittore Baroni in Italy collaborated on a couple of years ago.

Sad news just in that Dawn lost her long fight with cancer recently.  Deepest sympathy goes out to all her friends and family.Continue

I understand, and there is another covid mutation on the offing. If you do come to London please do contact me, I am 20 minutes from Victoria and from there I can get anywhere very quickly.

October seems ages yet although the weeks seem to rush by at an alarming rate!  Hopefully can get down to London at somepoint this year. Still a bit wary of going on trains full of sniffly sneezy folk!

I hope to see you!

Does anyone recognize this Mail Artist living in London?

That is so funny just what I need. Trying to buy International stamps on line as usual. No way! Only parcels! I do not know if to cry or tear my hear off. I shall do both to be on the safe side...

The nearest we got once was sending a pigeon ( albeit a plastic decoy) through the mail to Hazel's Mom. We left his head emerging through the parcel so he "could breathe" - we didn't want the RSPCA  after us!  He arrived safe and sound with a coo from the postie who delivered him back in the 80's when sending anything seemed a cheap and cheerful affair!

I have thought about carrier pigeons. There are a few nice tame ones that come to my garden. I will have a word with them. Will offer an increase in  peanuts.

Martha - a sad state of affairs all round.  Seems like the death knell to me too.  Thank goodness for the internet although could go the same way - prices going up for broadband and other services.  Carrier pigeons anyone?

Hi all! Are you aware of the latest postal news? I was not until my husband told me.
The price of international postage is going up from Monday from £ 1.85 to £ 2.20! I had been checking since January the PO website did not say anything. Because it has not been revised since a year ago!!! And I did not notice, silly me!
More bad news; the Royal Mail, so called, maybe taken into administration with the consequent disruption or even death of mailing as we know it. It is a failing private business now, only interested in profit so it concentrates on profitable areas like parcel deliveries but still has an obligation to deliver letters to every address in the country. Hence the court action. They should do the same to our conservative (read fascist) government. They have run down the country to a shadow of what it was with their sick ideology: Take from the poor to give to the rich.

At least the internal mail seems to be functioning!   Well done Kevin!
