So we did have it right FJH, we sensed some journalistic bent in your postings.
Don't be shy, feel free to post any of your past work.

We also have the Shanahans members here that have had articles in the Australian Stamp Monthly (Brit. pre stamp letters) (Eunice Shanahan)

As an aside, found a SOAR hiding back of book, with my "unidentifieds" and ephemera, thought I had never had one.
Care to guide us on what to look for? any Catalogue for these? Water Soluble adhesive?
Thanks.

As I noted then, from 1922 to 1991 only six women had appeared on Irish stamps and four of them had founded religious orders.


Well, it's time to adjust that here on SCF.

Ah I have never been a journalist. But I am a blogger in many different arenas.
Writing did play a large part in my working life and in post-working life but I am still type with two fingers. Post-retirement, spelling, syntax and grammar are really terrible.
The SOAR stamp the otter (madra uisce is literally "water dog" was bought in Kinvara, County Galway on the 308th day of 2014. It was the 157th stamp in the roll.
The 60c stamp was from a booklet and the SOAr was added after National Rate postage went from 60cents to 68cents.

An interesting read here.
Philatelic Ulysses.

Shame on you, Rod! Too easy to get mired in one of the dull, early sections. The 26 September NYRB had an interesting article by Michael Chabon about the successful strategy to enable publication of Ulysses in the US (not linked, as that particular article is subscription only).

Perhaps not shame, Geoff, just an indication of personal limitation.
I read all of Dickens whilst in Vietnam, and thought I'd springboard to Joyce.
Alas, a bridge too far.
Not game to give it another try.

Not my stamp.
