This morning, I mailed 34 post cards to places around the world!!! (Finally!!!)

I know that all of you are busy with work, or out traveling, and living lives outside of TP. But, just as a simple reminder...

If you receive a post card from someone, please think about posting a reply in this thread or PMing the sender directly. The response to post card requests has been phenomenal!!! I don't think any of us expected to have so many willing participants! (To date - Beerman and I have received 66 cards!!!) But, the only way any of us are going to know if our cards have arrived (or not), is by checking this thread or receiving a PM. None of us want to think our cards have been lost in the mail forever, circling the globe for weeks and finally laid to rest in the dead letter office. Thanks for understanding and thanks again for all the wonderful cards from all the wonderful places! (I have started a scrapbook since my refrigerator isn't that big.)

Also, I'm still looking for input about a master address list. Please send me a PM if you are willing to be on such a list and with any suggestions regarding it's regulation. Thanks!!!! ;)

I love the idea of postcards and everyone sending them, I have a few that showed up too!

But I want people to consider an alternative. There is a planet known as Kenaf. And the market is in the starting stages but it is growing.

Kenaf (Hibiscus canabinus L.) is an annual, non-wood fiber plant related to okra and cotton. It is native to central Africa. It can grow to heights of 12-18 feet in a 150-day growing season. It requires few or no pesticides or herbicides, depending on where it is grown. Kenaf can be grown throughout the southern US.

Kenaf can produce 5-10 tons of dry fiber per acre. The plant has two types of fiber--the outer, bast fibers (about 1/3 of the plant) and the inner, core fibers (about 2/3 of the plant). Generally, these two parts have separate applications.

It is a great alternative to tree-paper. So it would be great if people wanted to do their part to make a sustainable future for the children of this world and buy kenaf postcards instead of tree postcards.

Thanks
From your friendly neighborhood activist.

Thanks Brenden, great and helpful info!

And thanks, Wilhelm! Got your postcard this morning! Enjoy your trip in Zanzibar ya!!! And the stamps are lovely too - I think it's quite similar to an impressionism painting called "The Regatta at Argenteuil" (1872 - 1875) by French Impressionist Painter, Claude Monet...cool!

Thanks!!!

Thanks a million Isa and beerman! I´ve received two more lovely cards, one from Montréal and another one showing lots of tiny glasses of mustard. Madrid has quite a large number of museums, but haven´t come across a Mustard museum yet.
