Newsletter - 2024-02-03

Greetings and welcome to another week! This one is firmly inside February, and technically heading to March already, though there are a few weeks yet until that happens. Not many though, for at this very moment it is the Pagan holiday called Imbolc, which runs through February 1 and February 2. This is half way between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, and it was widely celebrated by Celts in Neolithic times.

It is also a good time to get in touch with your feelings and plan things to do when the warmer weather comes along. 

So this week we have a goodly selection of new cards and also two scans which were sent in by readers, which we much appreciate. And it is a good prompt to say that if you have a special and unusual card we will always find a space for it - and you do not need to reveal your identity if you prefer not to, though there is nothing to stop you sending a link to this site to any friends who already know about your card.

As for our cartophilic cast list this week, well allow us to introduce a barmy breakfast, a postal pleasantry, a time triumph, a centre-half`s centenary, a notable nose, a scouting surprise, and a fruity favourite... 

Lets start with : 

And so, dear readers, I must depart, and rest a while before starting the next edition. Saturdays seem to come round pretty fast! However I do enjoy the research, though I am amazed that I have been managing to find different subjects all this time!

Long may that continue... 

As always, thanks for stopping by, and hopefully you learned something that you never knew before.

And do come back next week, for more.
