Expensive Art

Just for the record, Edvard Munch's painting " The Scream" sold yesterday in New York for about $120 million, this is the most ever. Did you know that Barcelona soccer players earn over $5 million a year? It would take 60 of them to club together and buy it after one whole year! Wow that is a lot! and Barcelona FC is the richest sports club in the whole world. (The lowest paid professional sportsmen in the world get about $100,000 or less.)

Thanks to Indigo/Getty images for these colourful Chelsea Pensioners on parade

 It is a grey day here today, so here are a few colourful images to brighten us up.... They are also free!

Thanks for the free, bright and cheerful images.
Just for the record, anyone visiting Oslo can still see The Scream for free at the National Gallery of Art. Fortunately, Munch painted more than one version.

Nice colours. It's pretty dismal over here as well so they brightened my morning. Thanks
