    I love historical fashion, I'm hoping to make a jacket using the regency pattern on Sensibility.com. I have 8 yards of cotton matterial (I got at a Civil War reenactment) I want to use for the lining. The pattern on the material is a reproduction of some that was produced in the 1860's.

    Of interest to philatelic collectors:

    Rare stamp may be sealed in Florida ballot box

    November 11, 2006

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida (AP) -- A rare, valuable stamp that could be worth at least $200,000 may be on an absentee-ballot envelope sealed in a box with other ballots from Tuesday's election.

    Broward County Commissioner John Rodstrom discovered the stamp, which may be the famous Inverted Jenny, while reviewing absentee ballots. There was no name on the envelope so the vote did not count.

    What seemed like a small stamp collection on one envelope caught Rodstrom's eye. At least one was from 1936, Rodstrom said. Then he noticed one had an upside-down World War I-era airplane -- the hallmark of an Inverted Jenny.

    "I was a stamp collector when I was little," Rodstrom told The Miami Herald. "I recognized it."

    Rodstrom discussed the stamp with the other members of the canvassing board -- Broward County Court Judge Eric Beller and the supervisor of elections.

    A stamp-collecting Broward sheriff's office deputy overheard them talking about the possible Jenny. After hearing the description, he said the stamp would be very valuable if it was real.

    But it was too late.

    "By that time we had already sealed the box. And once you seal the box, under the election law you can't unseal it," Beller said. "We looked at the election law to see if we could unseal it, and we didn't think we could."

    The 24-cent Jenny stamps were printed in 1918, said Maynard Guss, president of the Sunrise Stamp Club. Stamp sheets were run through presses twice to process all the colors, and on one pass, four Jenny sheets went through backward, Guss said. Inspectors caught the errors on three of the sheets and destroyed them, but somehow, a sheet of 100 stamps got through.

    Stamp collectors have spent the past 88 years trying to find them all. Replicas are sold on Web sites like eBay.

    But this Jenny, if real, might not be as valuable as it could have been. When the absentee ballot was mailed the stamp was canceled, reducing its value, Rodstrom said.

    Here are more pics of my cars. Slot Cars

    I Drag Race Slot cars on Friday Nights and travel around nearby states to do it also.

    I usually spend a lot of time reading but have slowed down on that.

    I use to deer hunt but my health has limited that.

    I spend a lot of time at sporting events. My kids play football, basketball, baseball, and wrestle for their schools. I have one in Highschool, another in Jr. High, and one in Elementary School. So I am spread out on the sporting thing.
