Humm.

Hello
I thought it was a good idea to buy 660 lbs/330kgs of fresh potatoes from a local farmer...

From the middle of this winter we eat only 1/3 of it .

3 people at home i think i'm gonna give some to my neighbouring.

I still have Oinions Apples carrots in less quantity ...

Manage food through months is ok but we did an error lol

At least I hope you enjoy better lighting.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

That is without a doubt, the most dissapointing painting I have ever seen. Thankfully Mr. Van Gogh happened to do one or two other paintings of a much better quality and, as luck would have it, were on exhibit in the same gallery.

330 kilos is a LOT of potatoes! I'm sure there is a local food bank that would be willing to take your extra's though.

It's a bad reproduction for one, but it is dreary. It's supposed to be! They're poor and without hope! It's totally OK to feel any way about it one likes, but it is considered a seminal work. It's just not as "happy" pretty as the poplar ones. He only painted from ages 32 -39, so cut the poor dead dude some slack, eh, Fred?

I was actually fortunate enough to go the Van Gogh museum last spring. I was oddly taken with that particular painting and stared at it for some time. Not because I thought it was beautiful, but because it made feel intrigued, repulsed (maybe too strong a word), but oddly uncomfortable yet still fascinated by what it portrayed. Quite interesting, especially given I am not one to appreciate 'good' art.

The one guy across the table does look like a potato head.

Now there's a deeply felt and clearly articulated revisionist approach to the history of sign, signifier, and symbol in Western painting. On the money!

Actually, I think it is in need of restoration. I get dreary, but it just looks dull. Not particularly impressive for a seminal work.

The best part of the Gallery was a collection of self portraits done throughout his short career.

Oh, if I wanted happy Bob, I'd just go to a gallery that hangs nothing but happy faces.
