The same painting was sold in 2009 for a mere 23 million Euros.
The TEFAF will be held from March 18 to 23. Good luck with the negotiations. I should think you could knock a couple of millions off the asking price.

Maybe it's a primitive thing.

What would this be used for ? It’s porcelain, about 8 inches high and the upper ‘handle’ has an opening in it, presumably for a utensil. S&S? Friko? Pondside? Anyone???
And while I’m at it, how about this little brass thingy? It’s had me stumped for years. Fran, I’m sure you can think of a use for it.

This phrase to some is pure irritation,
suggesting, as it does, that each Blogholder
lacks the guts to be little bolder...
Only unctuous praise will be accepted
as printable. A comment is rejected
if truth be offered up, however kindly,
to one who writes their words a trifle blindly,
ignoring even basic writing skills,
but expecting patient readers to instill
some kind of meaning to their scribble,
which sometimes can be little more than drivel.
LATE ADDITION Hey, folks - there's a Humdinger of a Link from Mrs Trellis that's appeared in the comments section - I've decided to highlight it here as well!

I'll try this joke on you in the vague hope you haven't heard it before, like everyone else I know has
A man walks into a fish and chip shop and says, 'Can I have a steak and kiddly pie and chips, please?'
The assistant says, 'Steak and kiddly? Don't you mean steak and kidney?'
And the man replies, 'I said that, diddle I?'
Try saying the joke out loud. It's so SATISFYING.
