Looks like Approval Book 20,000 will be activated some time this week (at the current pace of book activations)

Seems just like yesterday....

Conservatively speaking, that would be somewhere between 2.5 Million and 3 Million stamps listed and probably more than 1 million sold. Not bad for a club of 200-300 active members.

re: Approval Book #20,000

Jings!.....Crivvens!.....Help Ma Boab!

Guess who drew the number 20000 on their latest Approval Book?

Come on have a guess!

Was it my nemesis from San Francisco ?

Was it the man that keeps us in line if we overstep the mark ?

Was it our most generous host ?

No it wasn't any of them. It was......yes you've guessed...... it was..........ME!!

To celebrate the 20,000th Approval Book I have produced a 24 page Worldwide Book.

Every stamp is priced at 1 cent.

I will activate it sometime today.

(Remember I am at least 5 hours ahead of North America and 8 hours behind Australia)

re: Approval Book #20,000

Ian,

Congrats ! I was off by 2 books. If I would have got up early I may have made it but I decided sleeping in this morning was more important. Also I prefer to keep a low profile and not have too much notoriety here ! Steve

Congratulations Ian...well deserved badge of contribution.
And mostly high quality books I may add.

Now we have to design a certificate worth framing and hanging on the wall.

Did you include a nice US C13-5 zeppelin set in your 1¢ book? Laughing

OK I used the wrong words "at least".

I should have said "on average" or "around" or just said "the USA" and ignored those in other parts of the North American continent or never gave a figure at all.

There again I could have upset everybody on all parts of the American Continent by saying that "you are always behind us" or better still "we are always well ahead of you" and ignored Australia completely.
