Great show! Big Alton Brown (Iron Chef, Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray) fan.

I'm thinking Alton was one of "The Science Guys" on Discovery Channel.

Soledad O'Brien (yum) played a computerized answer lady on the show.

OT: but does anyone remember that? . . searching "The Know Zone" . . .



Anyway, I jumped over to the new forum last night. Added a few photos

I've been meaning to share. US-30 attractions in NJ and more!

Hey folks,



Here's the address to send a letter of support on having the United States

Postal Service approve a ROUTE 66 stamp.



Mr. Terrence W. McCaffrey,

Manager Stamp Development

1735 N. Lynn St. Suite 5013

Arlington, VA 22209-6432



or



Citizen Stamp Advisory Committee

c/o Stamp Development USPS

476 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Room 5670

Washington,DC 20260.



==========================================



Some of you met Pat in Albuquerque...





As for the stamp I was advised by others including Tommy Pike to stick with

the 66 stamp perhaps each stamp barring each of the eight states that the

highway goes thru. He put Scott Maness to work with me on this project as a

special committee. I wrote a letter back to Terrence W. McCaffrey, Manager

of Stamp Development of the USPS to see if the committee has definitely

selected 2009 as the issue year if so is it possible he could say for now or

as time gets closer that it is a reality. I appreciate the help on this.
