I think I should add these to (or at least start) a wishlist.

I am a letter writer, snailmail addict. I send therefore I receive. I also manage a letter writing/correspondence forum called A World of Snail Mail and have a blog (link is in my profile). I sometimes post pictures on Instagram (username morgaine_does_snail_mail) Stamp themes - science, nature, postal history, maps, nice stamps.

In 1822 Jean-François Champollion (1790-1832) made a major breakthrough in deciphering the Egyptian hieroglyphics of the Rosetta Stone. In 1972 France issued SG 1978 for the 150th anniversary. The inscription translates, "Your building is as durable as the sky". Champollion produced an ancient Egyptian grammar, but this appeared only after his premature death, which was due to the effect of travels to Egypt on his health.
