About Me

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

My name is Tammie, I'm 38 and live in the southeast coastal town of Eastbourne, England.

Huge NASCAR fan 🏁 I support the 9 of Chase Elliott and run a fan Twitter and FB group in support of the team #di9 #teamAG 💙🧡

I'm a radio ham 📻🎙and 💖 contesting, IOTA, US county chasing

Also into 📸, Postcrossing, 📚, coin collecting (UK/US), stamp collecting (UK/US), drawing and doodling, train cams, weather geek (US Skywarn trained and UK storm spotting trained).

💖 beautiful skies 🌆

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

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

Dislikes Spiders, Make-up - don't wear it, have no clue about it, not interested, lol. Clowns - I've never liked clowns and I think of is John Wayne Gacy. Anything adult themed.

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. Third-party software doesn't always pick them up. 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 my third-party software hadn't picked up.

Favorite Music

🎶: country - Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Maddie & Tae, Matt Stell, Michael Ray, Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Chris Young, Dierks Bentley, Dustin Lynch, Parker McCollum, Gabby Barrett, Chase Rice, Justin Moore, Sara Evans, Thomas Rhett, Tim McGraw, Tori Kelly, Kelsea Ballerini, Brantley Gilbert, Pistol Annies, Jessica Andrews, Carly Pearce, Brad Paisley.

Hed Kandi/Fierce Angel record labels.

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 the cup series.

I followed Jeff Gordon from 1992-2017 and Chase Elliott as he came up through the series'. #di9 #teamAG

Would love penpals (email or snail mail) who love it as much as me :D


Comment: Tammie, such a wonderful, heartfelt letter. Thank you for including the photographs. They really helped bring to life your sunsets, water and flowers.

Funny, I've never known of anyone in the UK that loves Nascar :) We had season tickets for the June Michigan race every year. Was always a blast. We don't catch it on TV as much as we used to, but it's like old times when we do. Have a great weekend ahead!

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?

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!

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