About Alain...

thanks for reading my profile.

Here about me : I'm Alain, originally from Munster in the Green Valley, famous for the best cow cheese worldwide. But nowadays in Thann.

My favorite hobby is hunting vehicles, to snap some rare or special license plates. My actual avatar, AN UNKNOWN TOWN CREST FROM A SLOVENIAN PLATE. Someone has ANY IDEA WHAT TOWN IT IS ?

Other hobbies ? Music, almost all kind from everywhere. Also I collect several things like crown and champagne caps, scale vehicles, stamps, postcards, coins and banknotes.

Would be pleased if you'll send a card to me. Please send ONLY A6-sized cards, NOT LARGER AS 16x11 CM. Also I have NO INTEREST in home made, ad's, cartoons, non-sense ... DON'T USE any envelopes, tape, glue, stickers, because a postcard must look postaly normal or philatelic, NOT CHILDREN MADE !

LANGUAGES are fascinating ! Please write your text ONLY in a language and script SPOKEN IN THE COUNTRY of which you sent the card, matching with card motive, stamps and ID-code letters ... EVEN IF Native-American, Arabic, Chinese, Ethiopian, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew, Korean, Russian, Tamil, Thai, etc ...

So for exemple, a London card sent from Moscow and written in french doesn't make any sense.

Nice stamps are always welcome. Thank you.

I'm interested in many other topics, mainly :
transport and vehicles from former USSR and generally all the eastern block (all motorized road vehicles from the smallest mopeds up to the largest carrier trucks, including normal, emergency, handicars, sport, army, and so on ...). Love all about soviet times, propaganda, monuments ...

Also I'm a fan of first nations, folklore, music, traditions, handycrafts, daily life, erotica, nude, wine, beer, castles and palaces, churches, monasteries and cimeteries, nature and natural phenomena, space, streets and avenues, famous people or not, languages and scripts.

All cards shown in my favorites would be much appreciated too.

▲ for BY members only, I DON'T HAVE the Фаўна/Флора Беларусі cards shown in my favorites.

▲ for FI members only, I ALREADY HAVE the Inge Löök cards 01-02-05-07-08-11-12-13-14-17-18-19-20-21-22-23-24-25-26-27-28-29-30-31-32-33-34-35-40-42-43-44-45-47-49-51-52-56-63-65-111.

Warning : 16 times I got a same card as a former one. To avoid other duplicates, have a short look at my registered cards.


Post-Scriptum : 78 expired cards from 2010 to Oct. 2019 :

... because many members don't register the cards, having no interest in this hobby and despite having received them. For serious members it's bad losing so many cards (and money) for that reason. Those people may use the inactive status.

And what about others who, by registering a card, don't even have the courtesy to say a single word for thanking ? Sorry for my displeasure, these are only real facts, let you meditate.
