cddstamps on stamps

my thoughts on stamps, stamp collecting, philately in general and maybe a few other topics !

Tuesday, October 06, 2015

Hello, well I am back in Hong Kong after a lovely few days in the UK. Weather was very nice and I even managed 9 holes of golf.  I also managed to find a few stamps and they should arrive soon, hopefully with some clean postal cancels for me to show you in future posts.

The above is a Miniature sheet I had not read about and I hope you like seeing it.

I said I might do a competition with some new GB stamps if I got some. Ok, how about this for a prize.

So, here is the competition question, four parts   - I have to make it harder and fun and perhaps cryptic for a prize this special don’t I  J  Hope you enjoy the research.

  1)   Many years ago I used to enjoy a pint at a pub near Manchester Airport,  What was the name of the Pub?

  2)   What was the name of the band that recorded a piece of piano music that reached number 21 on the USA charts in 1961

   3)    Who said, “That buzzing noise means something. Now, the only reason for making a buzzing noise that I know of is because you are... a bee! And the only reason for being a bee is to make honey. And the only reason for making honey is so I can eat it”

  4)    I rarely go near these but I pray a lot when I do. (answer is a 6 letter word)

I will draw a winner from all entries received 09:00 Saturday 17th October here in Hong Kong,  – to give you time to think these questions through.

Email answers to me at and include your mailing address (I do not keep previous addresses and will not use the mailing address for anything else except this competition)

Have fun
