And something really nifty I came across yesterday. Gosh I wish I could recall who this info came from. I know if was from someone on Flickr. The site is called Postcrossing and it’s really interesting. You send postcards to random strangers all over the world and someone random will send you postcards too. It’s just something nice to do and who doesn’t love getting mail that isn’t junk or spam. Here are my first 5 cards. I was lucky to get all different countries such as Finland, China, Austria, Netherlands, and Germany.  The cards were picked for each person’s likes and wants.

What are you waiting for, go check it out.
