Russian Rooster

The mail brings nice things. This is one side of a nice card. What is say's ?? I don't know.

Als nice and a lot of stamps on the envelop, maybe show you later.

Soon it's time to put my chickens on their eggs to to get such lovely little ones...

Nice block of 4 types of chickens from Uruguay. The scan is not compleet, lucky the block is.

The chickens showed are Araucanas, New Hampshire, Orpington-buff en Leghorn Light-brown.

You can see hen and rooster of al these chickens. The first type is a bit different then the normal chickens you see. Maybe you only see the one in the supermarket, they are not of these types.

Nice stamps on a cover I got last week. Reminds me about spring. Nice flowers of bulbs. There are a lot of bulbs in the Netherlands, you don't see them much, but the flowers of course you see. We have to wait some more months, but I can assure you, they are in the ground somewere and they will come out soon. In our garden you can already see it, because there was/is no winter this season. Last week 3 day's -4-7 C in the night, but now we are going up to + 5 C.

Great singer

Do you like music? And singers? This one died in 1921. A great, maybe the greatest Italian Tenor we have had. This picture show him in a rol of ???, you may tell me. Enrico Caruso was born in Napels, Italy, on February 25th 1873. In 1903 he went to America and preformed there with The New York Metropolian Opera. Like the singing of tenors a lot, not the whole day but so now and then. You want to know more about Caruso?

He is selling the stuf on Ebay and add the nett result to Greenpeace. Show you the stamp. It is says to you : 2006 Thin Ice and 2036 No Ice. If you like these stamps you can still bid on them.

Who are the beasts??

This I find a wonderful stamp. Showing the “Gorilla Beringei Beringei. Mother with child, don’t think is his/her father.
Mother’s is about 90 kg , the father could be a 250 kg. They live in the zoo; I mean there are also about 670 of them left in the National Parks of Uganda, Rwanda and D.R. Congo. Their habitat is still getting smaller and smaller, we mankind, beasts of this world, need war and collector items of these nice animals, so we have no left soon. Germany makes me happy with such a stamp. 2 Currencies , collect them too.

Plymouth Rocks

This is a very nice cinderella. Shows Plymouth Rocks chickens. On the stamp(may we call this so???) is in German the text : Creolin Medol may not missing in every poultry house. Advertisment stamps, there are a lot and they are hard to get, so valuable.
Nice chickentype Plymouth Rocks. At the first American Poultry-show in Boston ( 1849) there seem to have been some lage cuckoo-like fowls on display. In 1874 the barred Plymouth Rock were admitted to the American Standard. In 1880 the first Rocks came to England and in 1882 to The Netherlands.
They do go broody. The light-brown eggs weight 60-70 gram. The chickens 3000-4750 gramme.
Thanks to the nice book : Poultry Paintings 1890-1968 from the famous Dutch Chickenpainter mr.C.S.Th. van Gink.
Offered by the Board for poultry and Eggs in The Netherlands.

Easter cards

There must be a lot of these cards, over 1,000 Pcs? World Wide. I guess just a number, could be more or less of course.
I do have also some of these chicken-easter cards. This one I got today from my friend John J.
The card has also a relief , the flowers, chickens and eggs. Strange to have always coloured eggs on such cards. Where does that come from? The card has a cancellation 03-20-1909 from Rudolph. Ohio 6PM
Also label this with easter so that you can find them in time. Maybe a little soon after Christmas, but as you know. Time is running when you are over 50……

Non collectors

There are a lot of us, stamp collectors, but we have more non collectors. Now it is the art to get stamps from them but whan you asked today, several times they forget that in the time.
So our nice neighbours who were here to give the best wishes for 2007. They told us that her little daughter got a nice book from French friends for the Christmas. There were also a lot on the packaging. Nice you have them for me, I asked? O forgotten.. I said they must be in the paper bin (we have a big one for 1 month of paper, board and textile, recycling is good for the world) but don’t give yourself any trouble. Next time better……
Later on the little one shows up with this MS. A small folding, but nice to have…… The neighbour's wife went upsidown in the paperbin to get it out.
They will save the stamps they receive for me, let’s wait and see.

Nice cover I have from May 27th 1933. Century of progress, world fair in Chicago.
Did they have any idea what progress there was still coming up in the rest of that century?
To mention some: WW-II (maybe no progress as a war for mankind but a lot of new technics came up). Space, Feet on the Moon, Internet, Chanel Tunnel, and a lot more.
Could be a nice topic *Progress* . You can start with your date of Birth to keep it handsome.
Better to have a limit on your collection.... (look who's talking....)
