Yes, USA international 1 ounce stamps are now all circular. There have been 4 designs so far. The first seems to have been retired. There are 2 holiday versions, and 1 'normal'. They are also 'Forever' stamps, similar to your 1st & 2nd class stamps. Given that I send a fair bit of international mail, I'm saving pennies by having stocked up before the last rate increase. :P

Finally got my hands on a Raspberry Pi Zero (with another one due sometime before Christmas). Nice little parcel arrived in the post yesterday with board and cable bundle.

OK so I'm geeking out somewhat, but took a while to get hold of one and it's tiny, superb and going to replace my aging and ailing travel media player. Had it hooked up and working fine last night, with the other one due to be used by the kids for their scratch/python learning at school and for getting into wiring stuff up and being controlled by computer (and if they get it wrong and blow it up, I can live with a £4 loss).
Grumpy old mod.

I think my postman is getting tired of all the little packages he has to deliver to me, since I've been on a buying spree. Now that the sicknesses are over and hecticness of winter is gone, I have time to prepare summer costumes.

PS spellcheck doesn't like 'hecticness' but has no alternative to offer. Should it be hectivity? Hecticity? I need to noun that adjective.
Outmaneuvered on all counts, I opt to change the rules.
