Phil Lynott Coin.

https://www.loudersound.com/news/thin-lizzys-phil-lynott-to-be-honoured-with-limited-edition-euro15-coin

Not only is there a special edition set of stamps celebrating Thin Lizzy being fifty years old.  There is also a special limited 15 Euros coin being minted to honour Phil Lynott.

He would  be seventy years old this year.  The last time I saw him he was 31 and l was 17.  Where does  the time go?   The coin costs sixty five Euros.  There was a coin minted for Rory Gallagher a few years ago by the same company.

My birthday and Christmas are in December.  So I think l will leave a few hints about the coin.

Here's  a video featuring Philo.  It's  about Elvis but I often think of Phil.  Dire Straits guitarist and rock n roll hero Mark Knopler is also on the record.  I would love to visit Gracelands.  Anybody been there or planning  a visit?

  1. Another December baby! I was always given one present - Christmas and birthday combined - and was always envious when my sister and brother received two presents each year!

  2. Hi Jaycee. Yes it was strange having my birthday and Christmas in the same month and having to wait twelve months. I think my mum always bought me something when it was my brothers birthday. Even though I was born in winter I only like summer. Oh to live in somewhere like the Algarve.

  4. Hi Gwil. I mentioned Christmas a few posts back. I watched Ronnie play today. Cat among the pigeons stuff. He won though. Thanks 😀

    1. I listened to a podcasts of a recent interview. He spoke about his fitness training, his gym and his running, his interest in food, and sounded quite upbeat and confident.

    2. Hi Gwil. Yes he does sound upbeat and the discipline is exemplary. Sports men are very interesting people.

  5. The way the months are flying Christmas will soon be here, and it doesn't please me anymore. Mind you, if I had a birthday at Christmas I might grow to like it!

  6. Hi Valerie. I say every year that it would be good to go somewhere warm for Christmas but we never do. We have been away to the Algarve once in January and this year in February. It breaks up the winter and you are not on holiday with the world and his wife. Christmas Day is on a Wednesday this year. Not one of my favourite days. Even the pubs are shut on Christmas day in Ireland. Perhaps we should hibernate? Thanks for commenting.

  7. I've been to Graceland and loved it! Everything is still as it was years ago. It had been on my bucket list for so long and finally got there several years ago.

A Jug Of Punch.

We decided  to make a pan of cider punch the other night.  It's really cheap to make and easy.  We bought ours from the German garden...
