About Me

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Swap-bot! :-)

My name is Tammie, I'm 34 and live in the south-east coastal town of Eastbourne, England.

((I no longer swap FBs, FSs, decos, lyrix, slams, LBs, GBs etc. If however you find an item for me, I would still like it back, please PM me here or Facebook for my address :-) Thank you!))

♥s: NASCAR (#team 9 - Chase Elliott, Alan Gustafson, Jeff Gordon), ham/shortwave radio, music (US country, fave record label Hed Kandi), reading/audiobooks, Scrabble, Sudoku/word puzzles, photography, video games, movies, stamp collecting, Winter Olympics, animals/wildlife, gardening, WX geek :P

I'm a licensed radio ham (since 2003), shortwave radio listener (since 1990) and I love all types of radio.

I have a passion for watching fast jets too :P

I ♥ lighthouses/lightships, I've operated from one during a ham radio contest a few times, it was amazing.

I also write US soldiers via Soldiers' Angels & I also write US inmates. I help out with a site that runs ads for inmates looking for penpals, if you'd like to find out more info please message me.

I'd really love to hear from you if you love anything I do, especially NASCAR and country music!



Make-up (don't wear it, have no clue about it, not interested, lol)

Clowns - I've never liked clowns but now all I think of is John Wayne Gacy whenever I see one.

Swapping & E-swaps

E-swaps are some of my favourite swaps. However, when sending BCC for some reason they don't always get through. Please, if you're awaiting an e-swap from me, contact me before the swap deadline and then log into your e-mail clients actual website (gmail.com, yahoo.com etc) and check your spam boxes there. Programs like Thunderbird and Outlook don't always pick them up and put them in their spam boxes, Gmail etc filter them first and dump them in their spam boxes. Try it, first time I logged into gmail.com I had hundreds of spam e-mails I didn't know about that Thunderbird hadn't picked up.

I can and I will always forward original sent e-mails that include the original sent date to prove I sent way ahead of time. I send e-swaps by e-mail individually as the BCC ones disappear.

Also, if an e-swap states 'e-mail your partner', please don't send me a link to another website such as a blog post or YouTube playlist. If you decide to send a PM instead of e-mail I'm happy to rate a 5/5 ♥, but please don't put me in an awkward position by not reading the swap requirements.

Favorite Crafts

Cricut, Zentangle.

I have an addiction to washi tape :P

Favorite Video Games

Sims 3, Sim City, Rollercoaster Tycoon 2, Real Racing 3, Final Fantasy XV A New Empire, Tetris, Mahjongg, racing games, other sim/strategy games.


I am NASCAR crazy. I first saw the movie "Days Of Thunder" on VHS just after it came out. I was 7 or 8 at the time and have been a fan ever since. It was virutally impossible back then to see/hear anything about it until I discovered that my love of shortwave radio could help.

I started listening to the MRN broadcasts via a station in Germany (the Armed Forces Network). I could just pick this up here in south-east England. Spring forward to around 2001 when I first got internet and I could find out a little more. I wasn't able to actually watch any races until 2010 when we got satellite TV and the channel Premier Sports started to show Sprint Cup series and then Motors TV showed Nationwide.

I ♥ Chase Elliott, Alan Gustafson, Jeff Gordon and Ryan Blaney!!!!!

I love to collect everything on NASCAR. Would love penpals (email or snail mail) who love it as much as me :D


Comment: Sounds like you read some great books in 2015! Have a great 2016 :)
Comment: Congrats on your Discworld marathon! I really loved your favourite passage. Your list is really diverse, with a lot of non-fiction! Great! Btw, I read A Hatful of Sky BEFORE I started on the regular Discworld, & I loved a lot of things about the book ... not exactly Tiffany, she is not evenso important, I found the concept of the Hiver, the concept of the existence of Miss Level in 2 bodies, the characters of the simple witch friend of Tiffany, & the Queen of the Wee free men ... I forget the names :)
Comment: Thank you for sharing. I'm glad you had a good year in readings. I loved the Memoirs Of A Geisha movie, but never read the book. May be i'II give it a try next year.
Response: Hello, thank you so much for the 5♥ :) The book is actually pretty different in places from the movie, I do think the movie is better now that I've read the book, but I think you'll enjoy it!
Comment: Lots of strange-to-me non-fiction on your list! Very interesting: Nascar and trains. :) I'm a little bummed you didn't try to look for books coming out in 2016; if only to fill in the questions. I did for my questions and found a bunch to add to my TBR list!
Response: Hello, thank you for the 5 :) I really didn't know where to look for books coming out this year in the genres I read... but yes, I wish I could've found some. All my to-read's on Goodreads are already out books :)
Comment: thank you for the swap! I haven't read the discworld novels yet, but they are on my to-read list. Thank you for sharing.
Response: Hello, thank you for the 5 :) I hope you enjoy the Discworld novels!

ESG: Nice profile comment



First of, I love your name! I don't know why but I do! (I'm not a creeper, so please don't judge me!) And from your profile, I think you're a pretty cheerful and kind-hearted person!

I also like how you decorated your profile! It's so bright and colourful! I have never know how to add images onto profile or in comment so this is actually my first time and I hope it works! Ugh! ><


I LOVE CASTLES, LIGHTHOUSES AND HISTORIC HOUSES TOO! I always want to go to Europe to see all these!! Singapore has none of those (if there is, I have never seen them)!

In any case, I hope you have an amazing day and week ahead because you deserve it! ♥

Lots of love, Xue Ying

P.s. I love writing mails so I was wondering if the writing of US soldiers and inmates is applicable for overseas penpals?

Your profile could almost be mine, we have so many of the same interets! Except NASCAR but then again I'm not a big fan of any sport :)

Supercute decos, too, I'm thinking about re-doing my own but I need the right moment.

Happy weekend!

ESG: Nice profile comment

Hello there!

First of all, let me say that i love how you decorated your profile! Audiobooks are awesome! I so agree! I got a 160GB iPod filled with nothing but audiobook! I listen to them all the time haha ^^'

I would like to share a quote with you that I just came across recently. I hope you like it:

Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!

  • Anne Frank

I hope you have a great weekend! All the best from Germany! Vanessa
