It seems to me that our American cousins are increasingly using postal
abreviations for their states (I think they're states) instead of spelling
them out. This means that many people on Planet Earth haven't a bauldy notion
where abouts on the North American continent the sender is! I got a message
from a new member from GA (many welcomes BTW wherever you are). In Europe GA
is a car Insurance company!

The alternative is that us Euros will have to start using our
abreviations (eg, SF,E,H,D,GB,NL).

topic bit: my VFTs and Darlingtonia are covered in snow since the
coldframes got blown away.
