glad you appreciated it.
That is the most fascinating thing about whatever you collect - the provenance!
For me it's not having
things, it's about the knowledge
about the things you have.
It has nothing with economy to do at all.
Many, sometimes I really get scared, when I meet people who collects things, for the thing of just collecting
Even though it may be harsh to say, I believe that the absolute majority of "collectors
", don't have any clue
about the provenance behind the things for which they gladly pay large sums. I seen highly educated and very rich men,
on the top of the social ladder, that have stunned me in their ignorance!
One thing I can tell you after 35 years as doc and as company leader/builder. People are much more stupid,
than you ever can believe. Many times because they are just lazy! Amazingly among the most educated with many fine examina, people like me
tends to have the highest % of just stupid species among them concerning common sense. In this I also incorporate their lack of humanity and how to behave to other persons, not to social ranking...
What still amaze me, is that in the homes of so many educated people around me, I seen so very few read
It's as a ex friend of me and collegaue, who told me he never read any medical news, after he was through with his medical specialist examina!!
Keep on reading Dean, as I know you do!
For me it's the only real drug I use, it's heavier than V&C and sailing!
Wow, that was perhaps to much on this place!
Send me a mail Dean and I'll tell you about some news!
