will get there. The postcode usually narrows an address down to a half-dozen houses in the same street.
On the other hand some people do prefer:
Mr. Fred Pimplelick Esq.
27 Fruttocking Bowers Lane,
The West Riding of Yorkshire,
The United Kingdom.
Thanks for the explanation, Bob. I always had a feeling that some of the information was redundant, at least from the Royal Mail's point of view. Then again, the long address is so nice, with all the ~shires, ~tons, ~burroughs, etc. etc. "Rumpletweezer ran the Dinky Tinky shop in the foot of the magic oak tree by the wobbly dum dum bush in the shade of the magic glade down in Dingley Dell."

To get involved you should choose the maximum number of postcards you are going to send and then send a PM to me with your address and that number.
Then early June you will get a PM with a list of addresses and you send one of your postcards to every address on that list. You should get back a postcard from everyone on your list. So you will send postcards to and receive postcards from all over the world. It does not only sound like fun ...
