Pookie & Lulucthulhu provide an occult report on the New Forest. However it appears they ran out of witches in 1938...

 

Sorry, it must be my writing, but that should be 1958.

 

Anyway, more details about the village of Burley and Sybil Leek, "Britain’s most famous witch."

Karl E. enjoyed Yog Radio 48 and the various other YSDC podcasts. It seems Karloff has a lot to answer for regarding Ducks...

 

Still waiting to hear on the postcard lady's decision. ;)

Intrepid DaveL has discovered the secret truth behind the Scroby Sands Wind Farm. I would recommend giving area 7 a wide berth...

Thanks again for all the postcards. It wonderful to see how well travelled and creative Yoggies are!

It's true, it hurts my head to look at it whenever I walk by it, and there are ancient Chinese artifacts from the Plateau of Leng inside it...
