My cousin received a postcard earlier this week.

It featured a nice b & w photo of the Liverpool overhead railway.

However, what caught my eye was the postage stamp, which featured a scene from "Blackadder" with R. Atkinson and his mates.

Heads up to all fans and stamp collectors.

EDIT: Dammit. 9:35pm UK time? That's going to be smack in the middle of Canadian GP Qualifying :(   I'm going to have to come up with a super duperest cunning plan...

Why would anyone want to watch a Canadian General Practitioners graduation ceremony? ???
To be called pompous and arrogant - hell of a come down.
I tried so hard to be snobbish and haughty.

Watching people getting free healthcare over the border in Canada has become a very popular fetish in America apparently. It seems it became a major thing there after Netflix released a series called "Drive to Survive", which I can only assume alludes to the concept of driving north over the border for better healthcare.

I had a cunning plan and managed to order the first day covers for them - having started looking again after getting the Flying Scotsman one earlier in the year.

Royal Mail have many special edition stamps coming out, Terry Pratchett Discworld in August are next on my wish-list.
