Sunday Stamps # 48

Theme this week: Stamps from the Great White North: Canada, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Russia, etc. Oh yes, and Greenland, a misnamed country to be sure.

Doing scuba is such cold water off Greenland - no thank you!  But an interesting stamp anyway.  This came from one of the University students, doing research in Greenland.
If you don't have a stamp from the countries of the North, perhaps you have one with snow?  Snow-capped mountains?

About the blog looking funny: Yes, the background images and header image are loading funny in Internet Explorer. I am not sure what I need to do. The blog looks its usual pretty self in Firefox or in Google Chrome.  Give these browsers a try.

Theme next week: Christmas Stamps.

I am using Firefox, and the background images are very small and only covering part of the screen.

P.S. I have Firefox 3.6.24, not the newest version.

It is not showing up well in Safari either (or in Chrome) that box just keeps following down the page.
Still, I can see the stamp well enough, and I am impressed that you have one from Greenland!

I've had problems getting to your post. Several attempts before the linksy link came up. Your template (I think) obscures nearly all the page, Success in the end but the template is still there.

I'm on Chrome too and there is this background image which keeps moving as I scroll up/down and somewhat makes difficult to read the posts.

The Greenland stamp is great and also such a rare opportunity to have something sent from Greenland directly! I envy you! And i think the suits the snorkelers wear do keep them warm enough and once you are inside the water, you dont actually feel the cold...what I dread is the moment getting out of the water :)

Never thought of diving in connection with Greenland, I imagine the sea will be crystal clear.
I'm on Firefox and everything looks OK apart from a slight background image.

Marcie said...

Also using Chrome and it looks funny, but you already heard that by now ;) I would never in a million years think of Greenland as a place for scuba diving! Learned something new again here :)

Here is something about shrunken background images:

You can also get to that page about fixing your template by clicking the logo in the upper left corner of your blog.

Hi... using an old version of Firefox and I encounter the same issue as others about your template but can still see the post and the linky link.

Diving in Greenland? That's extreme but I know adrenaline-junkie people would love to do that. I did some diving years ago and loved it but by fear of deep water made me stop. Lucky to you to have a stamp from Greenland - like Ana, I'm so envious :)

As usual, I have two entries this week!

I'm delighted I arrived home in time to take part. :)

I have to say I would never fancy swimming anywhere near Greenland, but the stamp is lovely.

You blog looks perfectly fine to me on Chrome 15.0.874.121, but quite jumbled on Firefox 8.0.1.

Your blog looks weird now, and diving in frigid waters - even weirder...:)
I use Chrome.

VioletSky said...

your blog seems to have sorted itself out now!

Joy there's a lot of browser that will fit in the images i recommend to you use google chrome or opera maybe it might help for you image problems.
