1) Featured Collectors Club
Highlighting clubs of interest to collectors.
Aviation Postcard Club
We are a club, founded in the UK over 10 years ago, for collectors of all forms of aviation postcards, from pioneers to the latest airline and military jets.
In those dark days before the Web and E-mail our primary purpose was to alert members to others who might share their interest and exchange cards and information.
For this purpose we published a quarterly newsletter with articles by members. The Newsletter continues today, but, with an increasingly International membership, including an active group in USA and Canada, the time has come to expand onto the Net.
Many of members operate their own websites for exchanging, selling or auctioning cards or are active buyers and sellers on Ebay. This site is NOT a trading site although you will find links to those operated by our members. This site supports the information sharing activity of the Club, which in recent years has broadened out into the publication of card catalogues for major British airliners, with the Comet, VC-10, BAC-111 and London Heathrow Airport having been covered to date. Members can buy these at reduced prices, with even better deals for those that contribute information from their collections.

2) We want your stories. Do you have any stories related to your adventures collecting? Share them with us. Put together a few choice words and email them to me at Phil@TIAS.com
My Mother-in-law was a wonderful cook and as many others do, she collected recipes wherever she went. When clearing out her things, I decided to keep one shoe box full of recipe cards to go through at leisure to see which ones I wanted for my collection. I found many versions of the same dish (e.g. 6 for pecan pie) but also found ones in the hand writing of friends and relatives, including my own! On a last minute whim, I took the shoe box to a social gathering of my husband's sister and several cousins. What a hit! They spent quite some time going through the recipes, exclaiming over certain dishes and their memories of either when it was served or the source. I encouraged them to take anything that they wanted and they did. It was fun for everyone to share the stories and find a recipe in their Mother's, Grandmother's or Aunt's writing.
The shoe box is a lot more manageable now and I found it a rewarding experience.
I enjoyed the rocking chair story very much and have one of my own. My family (Baxter) was from East Texas and my Dad, Jack, was a driller in the oil fields. We moved all over Texas and Louisiana and eventually to Penna. Every time we moved, my Mom had to pare our belongings down more and more- selling or leaving behind family articles. We usually rented furnished houses to save on moving furniture. I have a mental image of Dad's oil rig folded down for transport with our bicycles strapped to the back. One of the items that got left behind was my Grandfather Gooden's pressed back golden oak rocking chair. My Mom left it with a trusted friend named (I think) Gerry Reed or Reid in Palestine TX. The spelling may be wrong. Mrs. Reed was to keep it for Mom until my Mom could come and get it and somehow it got away. I would give about anything to get that rocker back. My parents are gone and I have very few family things. I can still remember it being in our living room in the last house we lived in before moving to PA. I can only hope someone has it that treasures it as much as I would. S.D.
Judy's (Chamber Pot) story reminded me of the time my parents, my siblings and I visited a couple that lived in an old farm house. We, stayed overnight Can't remember where the farm house was but will never forget the cold, the chamber pot under the bed and the comfort of our home with heat and indoor plumbing on our arrival back home.

We visited my son & his family in Feb. to welcome a new grandson. They also have a 3 year old. The new baby is named Case (for the Netherlands heritage in his mother's family). The 3 year old, Aidan, calls his new brother, 'Suit case'!!
While we were visiting I was up earlier than mom & dad so I took Aidan to the bathroom. He kept straining and could not go - he finally looked down and very matter of factly stated "I guess it's just not working yet"! Of course this grandma was hysterical!! How precious are all of these memories from children?!!

9) A Vintage Recipe
Be sure to check out our vintage recipe archive online at:
Over 1200 wonderful vintage recipes are listed.
In the last issue a reader requested a recipe for "potato candy" we received the following...
1 sm. potato, boiled & peeled
1-2 lb. pkg. confectioners' sugar
Mash potato and start adding the confectioners' sugar. The potato will become almost liquid. Keep adding confectioners' sugar until firm enough to make a large ball. Roll mixture on a pastry sheet. Spread with peanut butter. More confectioners' sugar may be added to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin. Then, roll up as a jelly roll. Refrigerate for 1 hour and slice in thin pieces. Carol Thomas --Cullman,AL

As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you had this recipe.
I need a really good old fashioned potato salad recipe - one made with mashed or cubed potatoes, onions, Mayonnaise (or Miracle Whip Salad Dressing), mustard, eggs, and sweet pickles (not relish) with some of the pickle juice added. Thanks. Shirley, Oklahoma
