Welcome to Episode #146. Today we talk about the small island of SARK which is in the Guernsey Islands of Britain. Look on a stamp of Guernsey with a map and Sark will be the small island at the bottom, just north of France. So why talk about it? Well this is the last feudal holding in the British Empire and it ended in just 2007. (Minute market 3)

Welcome to Episode #139. We discuss the Woman’s Armp Air Corp WASPs who were paramilitary pilots with a very interesting story.

Welcome to episode #126 - Today we talk about a Persident that gets no love - also no stamps (well he got 2 stamps because you cant just skip over him).  Yes we discuss Andrew Johnson who was impeached but you know what - it is an interesting story.  Has a bit to do with what is going on now also.

 

Probably will never get a #stampworthy but his story is interesting.

 

Also - this is a bit late as we moved our offices.  We are back up and running.
