Yawn, Stretch, Good Morning World....
Its 8 am Saturday morning here in subzero Scotland. I have lost track of everyone's timezones, so I'm just bumping this up in case anyone's missed it.
Now I'm off for a nice cup of tea and some steaming hot porridge.
Hope you all have a nice weekend

Well, good morning stampgal. It is 5:30 AM now, here in Georgia (USA). Just getting the day started and wondering what the mail will bring in the way of stamps. I am expecting several items. Just got my new 2011 Scott Specialized US catalog and am going through it. So much info and so little time to absorb it.

OK, I know these are tough (or so I've been told) but you're getting there!
I'll take the top three replies, so send me your answers even if you're stuck on a few, you might still be in with a chance...

Good Morning All.
I am pleased to announce the first two winners, with a full house of correct answers, are RYAN and BEESEE.
CONGRATULATIONS
There is still one more spot to be claimed on the winners podium - will the Bus be on time
Also it has been pointed out to me, there are two errors, so I'll give a couple of answers -
1) PERFORATIONS
8) WORLD WIDE COLLECTOR
A few people got these right despite the mistakes, so that makes them much cleverer than me (not difficult ).
Rest of answers and final winner TBA later today.
