Grin (25771), Following the subject of Antiques — these two paintings are my Mom in law's. These are quite valuable, as it is the first advertising (реклама) — they are Victorian — late 19th Century. A question for you — What is being advertised? (sorry the pics are not a great quality, she is getting a new floor laid in that room, it is very messy and not in use at the moment, so it was hard to get to those pictures). I will put my pics from my mobile in a sec.

These are just for a laugh — these are toy dogs on sale in a card shop in Sheffield - May Corbyn and Trump. No Putin.

Me and my daughter came back from Sheffield, my husband and the boys are staying there overnight. Vicky's got a Matilda by Roald Dahl play tomorrow here in London, she has the role of Matilda, so we can't miss it.

The subject of antiques is absolutely fascinating. You might find this very interesting — this is a Faberge piece — valued at 1 million pounds on the Antiques Roadshow — someone just had this in their house

Magical Faberge flower valued at £1 million — Antiques Roadshow — BBC One



Faberge unfortunately was one man band (as we say) — not a house of masters (like Cartier for instance), once he passed away (died) — his company was bought out by the Americans and they never managed to produce anything of the kind that Faberge produced for the Russian Royal Family. They just make the copies of his Eggs (there are 18 in total that he made for the Russian Royal Family, they are worth millions of pounds each), the replicas made by the Americans are worth peanuts — around about £2K per egg.

May is going to try and push her deal through the House of Commons next week — AGAIN.

The Telegraph (which is supposed to be the main Tory paper) keeps coming up with horribly negative headlines about her

Theresa May is wreaking havoc with the British constitution — thankfully, her days are numbered

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/03/16/...

Tory donors warn Theresa May Brexit delay will leave lasting damage to businesses, more so than no deal

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/03/17/...

The PM is dire, but this shameless Remainer Parliament will go down in history, too

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/03/16/...

Theresa May has trashed our democracy. For the good of the country, she must go

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/03/15/...


I still won't back Mrs May's deal – because it's not Brexit

P. S. Today is St Patrick's day by the way. This time last year me and my husband were in Cork, Ireland for St Patrick's day, watching the parade, fireworks, etc. It is celebrated in quite a spectacular way there, here people just drink in the pubs.

It seems like they advertise clothes)
Or maybe that bubble

Figure skating world championships starts tomorrow. This is the last and most important competition in 2018/2019 figure skating season. I hope Evgenia and Alina will do fine

I've had a hell of a weekend as well. Starting with that run on Friday, then Sheffield, Vicky's thing this morning, etc. It is just never ending. Where did the weekend go?

Bingo. You are the only one who guessed correctly. Both paintings are the ads of the soap. The girl is sitting with clean hands and wearing very clean white clothes (the soap was used to wash clothes as well at that time, there was no washing powder) and the boy is having fun with the soap — making bubbles. So it is like — soap is great, versatile and even fun. — kind of message. Well done.

I started watching it, but can't finish it all — have to get ready for work now. It sounds like the folk are mostly happy in Crimea with the fact that they were annexed by/ joined Russia — whichever is politically correct to say, cause the area is getting a lot of money pumped into it, a lot of investment. Well, good for them.

The EU is a rotten organisation. There are double standards there of course. And not just with respect to Russia.

She mentioned some problems there as well.
Also according to that Ukrainian journalist 30% of Crimeans are missing Ukraine, but they miss old Ukraine (which existed before 2014). Nowadays Ukraine is different and only a few people sympathise it in Crimea.

I just glanced at the article from BBC Russian (they don't write much on the subject in our English press anymore) and according to their graphs — everything is up — the investment is up, their salaries are up, the pensions, the number of tourists visiting. Everything is great apart from their agriculture — that went down the drain, cause there are serious problems with the lack of fresh water supplies. Cause Ukraine used to supply them with fresh water, now they don't. https://www.bbc.com/russian/features-47576483
