My cousin's little girl's 4th grade class is doing the project explained in the picture. They have also expanded it to other countries too. If you have the time could you drop them a post card? Make sure her name is on it somewhere as well as "stickyfrog" so she knows it was from the asking of her soon to be favorite first cousin once removed. Thanks if you can but no worries if you can't.

Her mother said Felicia's eyes lit up when she told her that I was going to ask friends worldwide on this forum. Remember it is a 4th grade class so...

Just a thought guys - if you sending a postcard, how about stating the one fact about your location on here as well?

I'm from Birmingham, UK. Our most common fact is that we have more canals than Venice.

We are the 2nd city of the UK

We also host the 2nd largest St Patrick's Day Parade in Europe and also the largest German Christmas market out side of Germany.

Over to you.

It is going to be hard picking just one fact. I'm in Wenatchee right now and Washington is the largest producer of apples in the US.

But I live in Everett, and work in the worlds largest building (by volume). The Boeing aircraft plant that assembles 747s, 767s, 777s, and 787s.

Plus Washington is the only State named after a President. It was originally Columbia when it was a territory, after the Columbia River. After it became a State it was renamed Washington, but it still gets confused with The District of Columbia.

For shame, sticky. Making us MVers do the work so you can be the favorite first cousin once removed. (You actually say that down there? I thought it was a weird Midwesternism). Anyway, can't you just buy the kid a Blizzard or sumpin' ?

Okay, okay, cheesy postcard from Wisconsin coming up next week.

Fun project...gives us something to do while waiting for Snoopy's next move.

I haven't sent a postcard in donkey's years, it's all text, facetime and email nowadays (strewth, I sound like an old fart!), it'll be a pleasure to send one from the Potters county (Fabio is doing Cornwall, so I'm not treading on his toes).

My wife is a midwestern girl so it must have rubbed off. For this favor she should buy me a Blizzard.
