PHILATELIC LINKS

Stamp Collecting is a lot like riding a bicycle. Once you learn how, it sticks with you for your entire life. Also, I find that my hobby is quite cyclical (pun not intended). I started collecting at about age eight for about five years. It was quite undirected and I was never told about the danger of using scotch tape to mount my stamps! I was more interested in quantity than quality. Still, I learned a lot about the world and benefitted from the encyclopedic infomation contained in my stamp collection.I lugged that sorry collection around with me for the next fifteen years. After learning a bit about the hobby, I scrapped the entire lot and started from scratch. I collected for about another five years. I'm not actively acquiring stamps these days but I thought any personal webpage about myself should contain a section on my fascination with stamps. Who knows, this may be the start of the next cycle?
