SILLY STAMPS -- an appeal

Posted on March 2, 2017 at 10:22am 0 Comments

This is an appeal for 'SILLY STAMPS'.

What, you might well ask, is a 'Silly Stamp'?

A 'Silly Stamp' is an officially issued postage stamp that, when you look at it, makes you think, "This is silly!''

And then, ''What on earth is going on here? What could its designers have possibly been thinking when they came up with this image?"

"And, given that postage stamps (like coins, banknotes, flags, etc) are important vehicles for promotong national…

A Great Gig Collage Tribute to San Marino, and/or How I Would Keep My Children Quiet for 15 Minutes When We Went on Holiday

Posted on November 8, 2015 at 5:14pm 3 Comments

The journey to France would take us through Belgium and Luxembourg before we got to France. I would manage to keep the kids quiet for…

Dr Dolittle, what goes on in French pharmaceutical laboratories, and Sir Alex Issigonis who invented...

Posted on November 7, 2015 at 6:30pm 1 Comment

..the Mini.

Car, not skirt.

But he might have invented that too.

What he did say that is 'relevant' (I use the word with some hesitation here) is that "A camel is a horse designed by a committee".

Thank you, Sir Alex.

And now this Great Big Collage (# 15 in the series, in case you have lost count) is about animals -- animals of the "Pushmi-Pullyu" type (supposedly, a gazelle-unicorn cross with two heads) of Dr Dolittle.

I managed to sneak a…
