Antiques Roadshow European Style?
« on: 27/01/2012 03:28:57 »
A few years ago an art collector bought this unsigned portrait for $20,000.  Actually, I think purchased by a Canadian in New York.

The painting is now estimated to be worth $100,000,000

Not a bad profit for a scrap of artwork that could fit into a notebook!

What am I laughing for? Why you Removed due to No Name-calling week

Today, January 27, 2012 is the last day of:
No Name-Calling Week

Words can hurt, both spoken, and also in writing.

For example, an insulting telegram is a barbed wire.
