Congrats on the new degree, DCStamps. And welcome back to the land of the philatelically obsessed.

Since we moved to the north of England things have been a bit chaotic and it's been difficult to organise things enough to make time to spend any time with my stamps. But for the last few weeks I've been looking at some countries in my New Ideal albums that I've not touched yet, Austria, Bavaria, Germany and Portuguese colonies have all come under the searchlight, with Czechoslovakia and Russia next. Yesterday I soaked a couple of hundred Bavarian stamps, they're in a Desert Magic drying book, and I also hinged into the album some stamps from Carinthia I got in the post from an eBay seller. As these are all big countries occupying quite a few pages they're making a significant difference to the stamp count, I've added about 750 stamps in the last three or four weeks

The New Ideals had got a few stamps in when I bought them and are now looking much better with several countries missing only the stamps that are out of my price range. But as time has gone by I've got more discerning about what I'll put into the albums and how I view what's in there already. The original owner was a bit slapdash, and I find misplaced stamps all over, and not just wrong watermarks but even wrong colour or value. And they didn't bother to put them in straight or even neatly in the boxes so I now find myself checking and rehinging almost every stamp as I go through too.

Sorry, I've rambled a bit there!

crispinhj, Nice to have you in the discussion! As far as I'm concerned, ramble all you like. I love reading about what everyone else is doing.

@crispinhj - Welcome!
I absolutely agree with Stampman2002 - ramble all you like!


@Micahel - Welcome back to the fun. I was starting to be concerned we had lost you. Looking forward to follow your blog - and congrats on the bioethics degree.

Today I finished mounting the Ruanda-Urundi and Rwanda stamps I had on hand (I found some more after my last post), and mounted some Dominica stamps from a retired circuit book I acquired a while back.

I have started to make/update a 'have' list (just a simple list) by catalog number of each country as I add stamps to it. I never seem to know what I have 'in the book', so this is a start of getting organized to improve online purchasing and avoid duplication. The US is the only country collection I have which is complete enough to justify a 'want' list, as the 'have' list is usually much shorter.

I also made a list of each country I have in the album and made an assessment of the state of each country collection (beginner, intermediate, etc) as a reference to use at shows. I'm off tomorrow and home alone with no car (in the shop). Whatever shall I do? :)

This weekend, I've done a lot of READING -- catching up on Linn's and the United States Specialist.

I still have some back issues of American Philatelist in my to-do pile.

Today I printed Steiner pages for my Belgian precancels..........and figured out I don't have nearly as many as I originally thought.

I also did a lot of reading past issues of Linn's and APS. Linn's is getting to be a quick read for me.

Ken Lawrence had an interesting story on Aden, Rousseau, etc.
