firstfrog2013: James beware of the southside, daughter was there recently said pretty bad area to get caught in. Jul 26, 2015 11:55:22 GMT
Admin: James its a great time for us Canadians to sell on eBay. Jul 26, 2015 17:47:08 GMT
Admin: I have 2 PayPal accounts one in US and one in Canadian they are the really the same account but I keep my us sales in one and Canadian in the other. Jul 26, 2015 17:51:51 GMT
Admin: Busy week, 4 job interviews. Another week of wearing suits and tie's, and its 35c >:D Jul 27, 2015 13:59:00 GMT
canadianphilatelist: good luck with the interviews Jack Jul 28, 2015 10:21:04 GMT
irishjack: Are we all off enjoying the summer and put the stamps on hold till the leaves start to fall? Jul 29, 2015 15:44:41 GMT
irishjack: Rod is probably freezing and wrapped in his electric throw blanky Jul 29, 2015 15:45:27 GMT
rod222: Hit the nail on the head, Jack. Since Spun Wool insulation in the roof cavity, temps have risen 3 degrees inside. When below 10 deg, I wrap in the throw rug, up to 14 deg, I sit on it mmmmm cosy :) Jul 30, 2015 4:32:32 GMT
rod222: With roof insul, LED globes, and the throw rug, Power use has dropped from last year, $85.90 (this period 56 days) Dying to get back on the bike. Jul 30, 2015 4:37:06 GMT
rod222: If you speak of a mad stamp collector, you are guilty of tautology. Jul 30, 2015 6:52:46 GMT
Ryan: I don't collect any mad stamps, I only collect happy stamps .... Jul 30, 2015 16:08:14 GMT

jamesw: Thanks for the tips on Chicago folks. Great trip, some nice purchases at StampKing. The owner knows my man Ted in Toronto, and we spent a couple of nice hours chatting and stamping. Aug 1, 2015 17:33:15 GMT
jamesw: ...and we never felt unsafe anywhere we went. People were very friendly. But then, we stayed on the good side of the tracks. ;) Aug 1, 2015 17:33:57 GMT
irishjack: James were you wearing a "I am a Philatelist" Tee-shirt. I find that will keep you safe from the general population. Aug 2, 2015 16:04:53 GMT
jamesw: Just my straw fedora. Makes me look dapper, and keeps the sun of my big bald dome. Aug 2, 2015 17:03:06 GMT
