Last week I completed another pass through the collection, looking for unposted provincials. Contemplating how few unposted still remain to find and the ever-decreasing value of new posts, I'm going to stop regular posting. I'll leave the existing posts in place, I don't rule out (though I don't foresee) occasional future posts, but since my stroke last year this has become a chore, and I'm going to stop.
