Quote:
One of small rooms held eight of Stanley Milstein's B&W prints. The Milstein photos displayed were "Seine Fisherman," "Couple at Cathedral Bruges," "Fisherman Loire," "Chefs in Eiffel Tower," "Loire Banks, Praying," "Paris Street Scene", "Water Pump, Paris" and a very large 40x60 print of "Cooperative." "Chefs in Eiffel Tower" is a bit humorous, with a wire elevator full of chefs against the background of the metal architecture of the Eiffel Tower. "Seine Fisherman" seemed to be an early morning scene, with the fisherman spaced along the Seine River, focused on the task at hand.

The other small room displayed the color prints from Lindsay Brice of her dressed-up evocative dolls. I find the images somewhat disturbing, dolls come to life, but not like those of fairy tales.

Here is a heartwarming story that should come as no surprise to anyone. Viggo visited a young author in the hospital in Tehran. The details are sketchy but our thanks to Gabriel and lilivenezuela from viggoville.com for surfacing the article and photos from an Asian newspaper, and to Stargazer and Aflon for bringing it to us at Viggo-Works.

Once again...Bravo Viggo!

Viggo is the loveliest man I've ever heard of. My friend Gabriel has just found a newspaper article in an Asian Newspaper and sent me this with pix. Sorry for the
bad translation:

"Viggo has been to Tehran to visit a patient with head trauma. A young author who was at the hospital due to an accident. The article says just how incredibly compassionate and kind this man (Viggo) is. He is the true example of a real and kind man."

House Votes to Ease Rule on Food Sales to Cuba

Only part of the bill easing the Cuba embargo and relations passed the House of Representatives.
Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to make it easier to sell U.S. farm products to Cuba by overriding a Bush administration requirement to pay in cash before the ship leaves harbor.to be made before the goods change hands, a more common approach for cash sales that also speeds delivery. It became part of a Treasury funding bill passed on a 406-22 vote.

Representatives killed two other proposed amendments aimed at revising U.S. relations with Cuba, including one to end the U.S. economic embargo in place since the early 1960s.
