I got this today in the mail. I do not believe I had heard of these before, but Twinings rare stamps put out 2 or 3 sets of 30 cards, about the size of cigarette cards. They represented some of the rarest stamps in the world. I got this one, Newfoundland C1 airmail, since this will be about as close to the real thing as I will get. If anyone has the all of the set, or just some, please post.
Thomas Twining helped to make tea Britain's No1 beverage in the early 18th Century. The Company have used the same logo for over 240 years making it the longest running commercial logo in the world. They are no longer situated in Ibex House although that fine building still stands proudly. Today the Twinings shop and Museum is in the Strand....not far from Stanley Gibbons !!!
Tea cards were popular in Canada as well. I remember my Grandma having a big pile of them - she was a Red Rose drinker, and here are some collections of the tea cards available. These cards were packaged in with Red Rose tea from 1959 to 1974.
My Mom has a small menagerie of little ceramic animals that also came in Red Rose tea. Canadian tea only, the cards above were released in both the US & Canada but apparently these little English Wade figurines were exclusively available in Canada.

tomiseksj: I've been trying to clean the garage (haven't been able to get the cars in it for a few years) so my time here has been/will be limited for awhile. I'm glad to see that the posting volume appears to be picking up!

Philatarium: Once you figure out how to do that, Steve, please let me know, as I have a garage and a storage area that don't seem to want to clean themselves out.

Philatarium: Chuck, if you get to the log-in page for the site, isn't there an option to click a link that says something like "forgot password"?
Mar 25, 2015 17:23:31 GMT
Philatarium: I just looked. It is right below the box where you would put in your password. Click on that.

TinMan: If I change it on my Desktop. Which is usually what happens. It makes you choose a new Password.I don't know if it will kick me off my Laptop too.

firstfrog2013: well it's that time of year and all the equipment needs servicing.I'm fine with everything til it comes to pulling the belly pan on the bulldozer.That thing just weighs a ton and trust me ya can't jack the machine up.I'm getting old.
Mar 25, 2015 21:55:54 GMT
firstfrog2013: Not the suggested way.The batteries would have to be removed, 2 at 75 plus pounds.and huge risk of throwing track.we operate a D8 high track same machine but next size up.Not sold anymore.The track loader shown pulling it over is almost identical to ours.

firstfrog2013: ...nothing on these machines is light or easy.You can imagine the junk that falls on you when you pull that pan.Even the side panels for engine compartment are heavy and PIA to handle.Just cleaning dirt out of bogeys takes some effort.
