We live about 1.5 hrs away & would gladly plant a WKRP box-probably in Spring Grove for more exposure-if someone wanted to carve 1?? Alas our carver has wrist problems so no stamps coming out of the R-Gang camp at this time

Ah... Well... Technically, those 5 emails are not the same. They all go different comments on your box. I mean, yeah, the comments are the same--but they were listed in database as multiple (and different) comments. So the links to approve the comments are different.

Same problem as the emails but in a different subsystem that I also need to look into.

Always bring 2 plastic trash bags, to wear like waders when walking to boxes with a field of poison ivy between me and the box.

OK, that's actually a good idea.

You are right, of course, but it is still bug's in the system. Thanks for all your support in this matter and everything else you get to do for us.

Or the abused wife being stalked by her ex, only to be saved in the nick of time while wearing something tragically sexy, by her new love interest whose interest she formerly discounted because he was giving her too much respectful space and who falls for her despite his best intentions not to, because they could be actual cousins.

Thank you all for the super sweet and kind words! I am so glad to hear from many boxers that they enjoyed the town tour of letterboxing.
It was great to see all your faces again! I truly enjoyed chatting with everyone and spending the day together!

The name reminded me of The Rings of Akhaten.

The pictures remind me of the Sistine Chapel, but brighter.

The structure reminds me of something that I can't quite place.

Why?

Mostly because well, when else would October 31 be other than after October 30?

If those folks got their way, then a few other celebration days might need tweeking:
Beggars' Night
Books For Treats Day
National Caramel Apple Day
National Doorbell Day
National Knock Knock Jokes Day
Trick or Treat for UNICEF Day

Some days seem set in stone:
All Hallows Eve
Day of the Seven Billion
Samhain - (Pagan)

Some could be whenever, unless there's something specific about the date:
Magic Day
World Cities Day
World Savings Day

Hello! I wanted to let everyone know that I have started a new YouTube channel and Instagram account about stamping, knitting, and general crafting. On the YouTube channel I am posting videos of me carving stamps and I would love it if you checked them out!
My latest carve, The Tortoise and the Hare can be found at:
https://youtu.be/lTTiBbXcz84
You can also check out my Instagram for lots of pictures of stamps, knitting, and Ellie the stuffed Elephant who got into a fight with a dog and needed a new cast:

I hope people enjoy this and subscribe. I'm having lots of fun making it!

Hi BB!
How long do you have your BOMs out for? Might be able to stop by for it after Thanksgiving on my drive down to FL, or perhaps catch the December BOM if you have it early in Dec.

Kirbert, it isn’t a matter of “why” but “how” or “by whom”. Halloween is not a legal holiday controlled by a government, so no individual or group have any authority to “move” it.

Halloween, thanks to the rules of historical linguistic chain shifts, is All Hallow’s Eve, followed by All Saint’s Day and All Soul’s Day. These Christian holidays have existed since the eighth century. They were the Christianization of pagan harvest festivals, such as the Celtic Samhain, but there are ancient harvest festivals celebrated in cultures all over the world.

For you to say “there’s talk of moving Halloween” is just as ridiculous as saying “there’s talk of moving Easter”. Passover begins on 15 Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, and has been celebrated for thousands of years. Easter is at the end of Passover, and has been celebrated as such at least since the Council of Nicaea.

Next you’ll be saying there’s talk of moving my birthday.
