50 thousand liters of wine end up spilled on the ground after the pond burst in Spain
“I don’t think quarantine is complete without alcohol. I was almost an abstinent until the time of quarantine, “she admitted Jitka Čvančarová on a recent internet broadcast. But this is a thing of the past, the actress has a hell of a car! So it’s no wonder that the effects of alcohol calories disappear like a magic wand.
“You sing, you dance, you breathe. It’s not that simple. It seems to be the left back when you look at it, it’s so cool, but there are a lot of those events and you have to be on exactly one side, on the other side, because of course the other dancers answer that, “The actress commented on a challenging life change according to Sedmička magazine.
If it continues like this, all 20,000 bottles of wine from the nuns in Oosterhout will be sold within a week. That’s what Thibaud van der Steen of the internet platform ‘Breda makes me happy’. He tries to sell the wine that the nuns of the monastery in Oosterhout make.
The nuns of the Norbertine Priory of St. Catherine’s Valley in Oosterhout had counted on a large order from KLM. But because of the corona crisis, it did not come and now the nuns threaten to be left with all that wine.
At least, it seemed like it for a while, but it’s going faster than Thibaud and his partner Frank could have imagined. “When we walked out of the nuns’ door, the goal was to sell 3,000 bottles in a month.” But that number was already reached on Monday morning after the start of the action on Sunday.
“I had Sister Maria on the phone Monday morning,” says Thibaud, “and I told her we had already sold 3,000 bottles. They were already so grateful. But now it looks like we’re just selling everything at the end of the week. Then the sign ‘Sold out’ can be placed on the door of the monastery! ”
Orders for the wine come from all over the country. “From Zeeland to the Wadden Islands”, says Thibaud. Most wine is ordered by private individuals, people who want one or two boxes for home. “On the one hand you help the nuns out of the fire and on the other hand you just have a very nice wine, because he gets a very good rating on various wine websites,” he recommends.
And if you initially had to come by to pick up the wine, a delivery service has now been set up. That is, if you order through ‘Breda makes me happy’.
Since Tuesday, there has also been a sister of that platform: ‘Tilburg makes me happy’. A collection point will be opened there in October for the wine that is now ordered.
And it certainly does not stop with wine. When the nuns’ wine is soon sold, Thibaud switches to pumpkins. “Then we’ll save pumpkins! This is exactly what we started the platform for. If there are growers, producers or entrepreneurs who are suddenly left with a stock, then we want to help. To get rid of their goods with the power of social media. ”
It is estimated that the auto It will sell for about $ 75,000.
Manufactured in 1971, it is one of the most recognized models in the history of the American brand. The car after being used was taken to an official workshop in Los Angeles for restoration.
“Anyone who drives this car will notice that it starts, feels, drives and smells like it just left the dealership. Everything in terms of vinyls, parts, stickers and details was carried out at the Ford dealer to achieve a very complete and correct restoration ”, describes the vehicle’s sale notice.
The work carried out by those responsible for the workshop shows how the Ford Mustang of Fast and Furious It was impeccable and as if it had just left the factory. It was sought to preserve every detail to keep all the original details.
As seen in the photos, the green color, with black details, has inside the seats that have a red color, which combine the door panels and the dashboard.
The mechanics are made up of a V8 Cobra Jet 429 naturally aspirated engine with 7.0 liters of 375 horsepower and 610 Nm of maximum torque.
“The wiring, the air conditioning and all the little details are changed and are working properly. A beautiful car by any standard and an excellent representation of the 71 ″ Mustang Mach 1, the ad highlights.
Portuguese wine exports to the United Kingdom reached 77.7 million euros last year, of which 44.5 million were generated by Port wine, which means that this market represents 9.5% of the sector’s total sales abroad.
But if it is true that the United Kingdom is a historic customer especially for Port wine, the country’s exit from the European Union opens up a scenario of uncertainty that is causing a lot of apprehension among Portuguese operators in the sector.
Now, following Brexit, the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e do Porto (IVDP), on 4 March last year, submitted the application for registration of “Douro”, “Porto” and “Port” as certification marks with the UK Intellectual Property Office. “The registration was granted on August 10, 2020 for the certification marks ‘Douro’ and ‘Port’, and on August 11, 2020 for the certification mark ‘Porto’, which are now protected in that important export market “, revealed the IVDP, this Thursday, August 20, in a statement.
“Until Brexit occurred, these designations of origin were protected in the United Kingdom under the European Regulations and the European registration system for geographical indications (eAmbrosia). However, the uncertainty, which at this date still remains, regarding the protection of designations of origin and geographical indications in that third country, demanded a preventive action on the part of the IVDP. Regardless of the outcome of the ongoing negotiations and in this regard, Porto, Port and Douro are already protected in the United Kingdom “, emphasized Gilberto Churches, president of the IVDP.
The IVDP, which emerged in 2003, is a public institute, integrated in the indirect administration of the State, with the certification of the designations of origin Douro and Porto and geographical indication of Duriense, and, in the course of this capacity for which it is accredited nationally and internationally. internationally, its control, protection and defense, as well as promotion, at national and international level.
“Despite the fact that we cannot organize the Znojmo Vintage due to government measures, we present Vinařská T®ipy together with the winemakers. Open cellars and tastings will be offered on the weekend of September 11-13 by winemakers from Hnanice and Šatov, Konice and Popice, Vrbovec, Božice, Nový Šaldorf, Havraníky, Chvalovice or also from Znovín Znojmo and Vinařství Lahofer, “said František Koudela, director of Znojemská Beseda.
Paul and Agatha muceniece Priluchny got an official divorce. In an interview Youtube-project “together” the 32-year-old actor told how he has built his life after breaking up with his wife. In April, Agatha gathered her things, took the kids and moved to owned by spouses of the Moscow apartment. Paul was left alone in their suburban home. On weekends, the children visit with him, but then again they go to the mom and Priluchny there is one. According to the artist, he does not tolerate loneliness, so I tried to solve this problem. To cope with the feeling of emptiness to help him Pets.
I can’t be alone. Even when I work. I need someone walking around, talking. I have two dogs, cats, fish. I solved this problem, – said the actor.
Paul said that in his childhood scarred by tragedy – the death of his father (he died when the future actor was 13 years old). Therefore he is most afraid of loneliness. This is what prompted him to create a large family: Priluchnogo muceniece and there are two children, 7-year-old Timothy and 4-year-old MIA.
By the way, on the eve of the divorce, Agatha suddenly confessed she still loves her ex-husband and doesn’t want to hurt him. Youtube-an interview with Ksenia Sobchak 31-year-old actress, broke up with her husband because of domestic violence, said not to say bad things about him.
– I love this man, and in any case do not want to show it in a bad light. What else can you do? To kill a human being? People get lost, she said.
Divorce Priluchnogo and muceniece was relatively peaceful. The actor left his wife and children apartment. Custody they are divided equally: although the children live with the mother, they can see dad when he wants to.
Previously, Agata explained why their marriage has cracked. According to the actress, she and her husband no longer understand each other.
Our Alliance came to the conclusion that we need to leave. We ceased to understand each other. It does not bring as much happiness as before. For me this is – said muceniece. – He doesn’t understand me. I don’t understand it. We can’t find a common language. We decided that it would be right to go, to be normal parents for their children.
However, fans suspect that the culprit is not just mutual misunderstanding, but also the passion of Paul by alcohol. Just a few weeks after muceniece announced the divorce, she has published in Instagram shocking video. In it, the actress said that during isolation in a country house husband picked up onhand and was brought to tears children. The quarrel between the spouses began after Priluchny, according to Agatha, drink ten days in a row.
– He brought the children to tears, he raised a hand to me, he is not adequate, – says the actress in the video with tears in his eyes. – He during a pandemic throws us out of the house. So tomorrow we’ll go to the apartment. But I can’t upload because I have no other weapons, except as publicity. Just know that here is a man Paul, you know?
Anastasia Volochkova and Dana Borisova long-standing conflict. Two blondes had a fight after the former TV presenter has accused the dancer of alcoholism and amoralke. In response to the dancer urged her opponent to answer.
Dana Borisova came face-to-face Anastasia Volochkova, which was accused of drunkenness. The ballerina denies that suffers from alcoholism. “What she’s accusing me? What I like to drink wine. What do you not drink wine? Sorry, what do you care what I do, I sleep with somebody that I realize. If the main task is to come every day to be on stage,” he said, as snapped, the actress in the new issue of the program “New Russian sensations”.
Dana just does not intend to retreat. “By the way, at this stage the legs were growing. It is explained to us in rehab. Female alcoholism, the third stageread the literature , specifically the woman begins to crawl” – not appeased with the scandalous attacks on television.
also not born shita. “I’d love to see Dana after his cocaine, so she went out and did something physically feet, hands. Without cocaine, I think, will not. If she says this, that they used to lose weight,” he recalled ballerina revelation sworn friend.
Borisov admits that struggling with their addictions. “Yes, I’m an addict, Yes, I’m an addict, Yes, I’m an addict! But I’m honest, I speak about it openly. But I’ve dealt with a long time all these initial stages, and her daughter is not even in the beginning, it is in active use! That is her denial even saw but saw. Nastya, I have a lot in common. We share the same disease – alcoholism“- she said.
Anastasia most resent injustice. “I do not understand why people take the liberty to judge me, to appreciate and evaluate? Climb into my soul, into my glass, my plate, in my bed, in my house. I have a feeling that in my house lives the whole country. Everyone drink: one wine who – vodka is what everyone wants – it is the right of every human being. But after drinking you can’t come to the gym and doing cartwheels, pirouettes and to do what you love”, – is angry with the artist.
Volochkova believes that Borisov must answer for his slander. “When you’re talking shit, you have to answer! I can tell you my cat: chatter and … – no bags to roll”.
Dana retorted: “Away: Mat-peremat. Habalki included. You go drunk, beg, fall.”
However, the proposal Nastya took. “Anastasia, breathe!”, – demanded Dana. Volochkova complied with the request, and Borisov withdrew, driving away the smell. “Are you sober?”, – asked the presenter.
In response Volochkova assured that just worked eight hours on Pointe and offered the opponent the experiment. She sent Borisov through all the circles of hell ballet to the on your own Pointe shoes see how hard hangover “to be in the pack.”
The job – to do the splits – Dana failed miserably. And this is understandable. In this field Volochkova has no equal.
“Drove Dan twine “alcoholic” in the air. Spinning, spinning. String “alcoholic”, and revolves a ball of gold” – Anastasia twirled in the dance, doing his trademark splits.
She said that for the year fromthere were 40 performances of “the Dancer in the mirror of the circus.” “I do every day love. Wake up in bed with a loved one… to Blame I have nothing. Has no right! For the charges that she made, calling me, pouring dirt, she will answer in court”, – said the dancer.
Berlin It was an unusual combination when fashion designer Victoria Beckham suddenly exhibited old master portraits in her shop in London-Mayfair. Fashion alongside old masters. The audience: fashionistas rather than the usual suspects of the art scene.
The change of location in July 2018 was nevertheless a market-promoting coup. All pictures were successfully added to a short time later Sotheby’s auctioned. The portrait of a somber-looking Venetian nobleman by Peter Paul Rubens fetched the excellent price of £ 5.4 million for a newcomer to the market. The number of visitors during the preview in the auction house was also higher than usual; the entire £ 42m auction was impressive.
A new bull market in the old masters market was not initiated with the “Beckham effect”. But the change of scenery was refreshing. And necessary: Because today’s generation of heirs does not fall back on the status symbols of the parents. With the change in taste, the marketing of these collection areas also changes. We are now moving towards lifestyle and luxury, but also towards online auctions, which are becoming increasingly important, particularly in the times of Corona.
The changes correspond to a collector structure that is changing. “Crossover collecting” is becoming increasingly important, collecting across genres. Dealers and the British press have been concerned with the trend for a good five years. With us he has not yet prevailed so strongly.
Also at international trade fairs – with the exception of the Londoners in charge here “Frieze Masters” – the brilliant idea of mixing art in a high quality across time and genres is still missing. But the advantages are obvious. In this way, the eyes can be opened for aesthetic adventures, for exciting dialogues and contrasts.
Antique dealers report that they were able to inspire modern art collectors for Roman sculptures. This overarching interest was already evident in a Sotheby’s auction in 2014, in which Pilar Ordovas, London gallery owner of contemporary art, auctioned off a life-size Roman “Aphrodite” from the Duke of Northumberland’s collection for £ 9.4 million for one of her customers. Traders of East Asian art also live partly from collectors who place classic tang figures in their modern ambience.
So far, an expansion of the tunnel vision has been attempted primarily in London, New York and Paris auctions. Under the title “Treasures” at Sotheby’s and “The Exceptional Sale” at Christie’s offers a top-class mix of individual objects from different collecting areas, cultures and materials. These are pieces that, lifted from the corresponding generic auctions, gain a new singular status.
Portraits from the 16th to the early 19th centuries have been market favorites since the beginning of the last decade. Old masters of painters of the first set such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Cranach or Titian were never undervalued. This market fate tends to overtake furniture from the Renaissance to the Biedermeier period, silver and porcelain. Good sales prices are only realized with historical items of the best condition.
Since silver auctions with their endless rows of silverware are no longer fascinating, exceptional pieces are sold in the context of the extraordinary. The main example is a mannerist silver can from the goldsmith Adam van Vianen, dated 1619, that was auctioned at Christie’s in New York in April 2018 for $ 5.3 million. Their environment ranged from Roman sculpture to a tang figure and a Steinway piano from 1924 to Aston Martin by James Bond actor Daniel Craig, who grossed $ 468,500.
Old master paintings can also be found in these auctions. In November 2018, Christie’s in Paris offered the portrait of a reader of the Leonardo student Bernardino Luini in an “exceptional sale”. At 1.2 million euros, it achieved twice the already high estimate. To date, his pictures had at most generated a quarter of this sum.
The new interest was stimulated by the Leonardo painting “Salvator mundi”, which had been raised the previous year and raised 450 million dollars in a contemporary art auction – the most radical crossover in auction history to date. Background: To some Leonardo experts, Luini is still the actual creator or co-author of the Salvator picture.
The noble auctions of mixed genres also offer furniture and handicraft objects of the highest quality. This elitist strategy was necessary because after the deep fall in furniture prices and the picky behavior of the global collectors of sculptures, art chamber pieces and silver objects, there are hardly any individual auctions in this genre. This also applies to old master graphics, which are increasingly being outsourced to the Internet. In Germany, however, Bassenge and Karl & Faber still have a lively auction so far.
An art chamber piece that shows the valuation range of exceptional pieces is the so-called “Lothian Casket”. This ceremonial shrine, which was built in Nuremberg in the early 17th century, was auctioned in 2017 in a “Treasures” auction by Sotheby’s for £ 118,750. A year later, it was offered by Munich dealer Georg Laue and London’s Trinity Fine Art gallery for £ 750,000. An independent appraiser from the UK export committee considered this price reasonable. It applies to a German Renaissance property for which there is simply no market comparison.
Porcelain is now mostly auctioned off in Internet auctions in London. The same applies to furniture, furnishings and decorative goods of the lower and medium quality categories, such as those offered by Sotheby’s under the labels “Interior” and “Fine Dining” as lifestyle elements.
A shift in taste borne by the auction market has been evident for some time: from an art object to a luxury item. Since Christie’s registered 29 percent of new customers in the luxury goods segment in 2017, the house in London and New York has organized “luxury weeks” in which wristwatches, jewelry, designer handbags and wine are auctioned. The last melange of this kind raised $ 83 million in New York in December 2019.
Of course, this cannot be measured against the proceeds for contemporary art. But the effect of winning new customers and then introducing them to the more expensive art in the long term is a principle of this strategy.
To the extent that auctioneers select old arts and crafts, they promote interest in modern design with live and online auctions. For example, bidders from 31 countries took part in the latest Sotheby’s online auction on April 2. They raised the estimates for a “Tiffany” ceiling lamp in the Moorish style to $ 300,000 twenty times, and for a pair of armchairs by Jean Prouvé to $ 175,000 six times.
But not only elite objects, but also varia of all kinds come under the hammer. Since 2013, Christie’s has been holding auctions under the title “Out of the Ordinary”, in which heterogeneous collectibles come under the hammer, from perfume bottles with a royal coat of arms to the fiberglass model of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. One of the most recent areas activated by Sotheby’s is erotic and homoerotic art, which has been offered with increasing success in auctions under the motto “Erotic: passion & desire” since 2017.
The market continues to fan out while reducing historical collection areas. Whether this is a promising model also depends on the taste development of those who are still in the luxury sector and in the heterogeneous entry-level area of the market. In view of the global fixation on the frontrunners of contemporary art, it is comforting that the lower market segment is also being successfully promoted.

Remains humorous: Christian Heinenbruch wears an apron as he cooks in his kitchen.
Picture: Frank Röth
Christian Heinenbruch lost all income because of Corona, Benjamin Molzberger is on short-time work. But the two cooks don’t complain. About two friends who stick together in need.
AWhen he broke off all his orders in March, it all started. No, actually it all started 15 years ago when Christian Heinenbruch sat next to Benjamin Molzberger in the vocational school. Heinenbruch was the oldest, Molzberger the youngest at 16. They understood each other immediately. After their cooking apprenticeship, the two even opened a pub together. New jobs came over the years. Your friendship lasted. Heinenbruch calls his friend “Benni”. And Molzberger called him “Heini”.
The two of them have been working together again for a few days. In the Harheim district of Frankfurt, they sell food to neighbors who work from home and get hungry at noon. They would never have thought that they would cook together again so soon. Heinenbruch is self-employed, Molzberger’s deputy chef in a popular Frankfurt restaurant. Because the corona virus deprived them of their working basis, both of them lost their jobs from one day to the next. Molzberger is on short-time work and still receives 60 percent of his salary, while Heinenbruch, on the other hand, has no reserves. Because he was afraid that he would no longer be able to pay the rent, he put a food truck on his landlord’s premises. Since then he has been in his small kitchen with his friend in the truck six days a week.
