So, how do I get my mail when I travel? Any snail mail I get goes to St. Brendan's Isle forwarding service in Green Cove Springs, Florida. They scan it and I download to my laptop. I can also have it held and forwarded or shredded. Perfect!

Saint Brendan the Voyager (6th cent) founded several monasteries in Ireland and became Abbot of the largest, Clonfert. He traveled as a missionary to the Scottish Islands, possibly Wales, and was dubbed 'Brendan the Voyager.'
