First Day Cover - Canada
Canada - Jean Grignon took a trip to the Post Office on August 23, 2006 to get his First Day Cover for a new stamp series issue. The FDC featured a corkscrew.
The Canadian Postal Service offers "Two pairs of elegant and tasteful stamps pay tribute to two of Canada's internationally acclaimed palate-pleasers -- wine and cheese."
When you're done with a thousand and one ways to remove a cork, there's always another one!
Readers of The Weekly Screw are currently working on two corkscrew cataloging projects.
The Williamson "Flash" souvenir corkscrew project began with the May 23, 2006 issue. The project has a list in PDF format (http://www.bullworks.net/daily/flashlist.pdf) and a pictorial catalog (http://www.bullworks.net/daily/flashpix.pdf).
The "Nifty" project began with the June 25, 2006 issue. For these corkscrews there is only a list (http://www.bullworks.net/daily/niftylist.pdf).
The pages of both projects will be updated from time to time and notice will appear at the bottom of each issue of The Weekly Screw. Readers are encouraged to review the list and submit their additions to Don Bull, Editor.
