A note on Scanning your Postcards

Some of you have written to me saying you would like to help me build a collection of souvenir tourist postcards but you cannot participate because you haven't got a scanner!

Well... naturally, I'm really grateful to them for wanting to help build my collection and I can understand that not everyone has a scanner... but guess what? I haven't got a scanner either. I've never really found a use for one... so I can understand the many of you who may not also have a scanner!

Here's what to do. Many of my friends and family, I find, do have a scanner. Also, there's a little PC shop just across the road from me. For a matter of pennies, they are happy to offer a scanning service for images. As and when I have ever needed any image scanned, I've simply either asked my friends to do it for me... or, as a last resort, I've popped into my local PC shop and got them to do it. My local PC shop have charged me 50p for that.

Now that's not prohibitive is it? :)

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Your comments are always welcome. When making a comment, please try and be fair, balanced, honest and try and refrain from abuse... but most of all DO NOT SPAM!

Oh and one other thing... I hate 'Anonymous' comments. If you wish to post anonymously, I would suggest you use the 'Name/URL' option... just omit the URL bit (it is optional and only for use if you have a blog or website that you want to link back to). Use a fictitious name; e.g. 'Angry in Ashford', 'Perriguito de los Palotes' or whatever! Anything is better than 'Anonymous'... and will save confusion!

All this being equal, I shall be happy to publish your comment... thanks!
