    Other than the hanging lamp, which looks from its size and flatness that it belongs in another painting, that is one beautiful image….I’ve never seen it.
    And I LOVED the article on meal times! It’s very British; Germans and the French have had a very different history……The French still have dinners at 8:30 or 9pm…..the Germans’ large meal was lunch until about 35 years ago. I love this kind of information…thanks for posting it!

    1. Until you pointed it out the lamp didn’t seem weird–now it does. 🙂 My family used to say supper at our 5 o’clock meal when everyone else said dinner. I used to think this was because we had no class (what did I know?).

      The other link has links to hours of useless American food history fun.

    My mother just joined a senior writing group taught by my friend. She wrote about the dinner table esp conversations when she was growing up. I can’t wait to read it!

    1. I love that sort of thing–family dinner conversations. I remember visiting my cousins and spending hours listening to the adults laugh–and laughing along. At home we usually fought over who got the last piece if fried chicken. 🙂

  3. There’s a company in Australia that is testing a device that shuts off all the transmissions in the house — TV, smartphones, WiFi — so no one has an excuse for missing dinner. https://youtu.be/Ei8qkaeclIo

    1. Who gets to decide when the WiFi goes out? It better be me. 🙂
