Germany tonight......... and more

Hello, where are you all? So few emails, and so few updates to other blogs. Hope everyone is well and not bored with stamps. I think, "bored with stamps is bored with life". Surely that is a paraphase of some similar quote from someone and we all know who because I am sure I have written about him before.. Oscar Wilde maybe..

But what about this stamp .. I do like the design. Last night I showed Calvin and Beze, Tonight Durer. Ok, go on, look him up on Google.. pretty cool dude if you ask me, and he mixed in a pretty special circle of people during his lifetime.

So why did I chose this stamp. Well I was looking through some stamps and saw the Calvin ones and then this so thought I would show it to you because I liked it.

Then I was reading Adrian's blog and he was showing stamps from France.. no collusion between us I assure you, then I looked at Eric's blog and saw he was showing French stamps after his trip to Tours. So this must be a Europe week. Thus, this one from Germany.

If you haven't yet seen Adrian's or Eric's blogs do have a look, some excellent material and very well presented.

Ok so you want to win a cover.. so tell me, which painter do we traditionally think of as the creator of the "Adoration of the Magi" and, clue.. I have written about him in the past. 5th correct answer will win a stunning Australia FDC email me at

Hope you enjoyed my tour tonight... Enjoy your stamps,......... Michael
