6 December 2015 - History Spotlights...

Christie’s Auction House - 5th December 1766

According to official company literature, founder James Christie conducted
the first sale in London on December 5th 1766, which is supported by the
earliest auction catalogue the company still holds.
There is other information from newspaper advertisements of Christie’s
sales dating from 1759 and that James Christie had rented rooms for
auctions from 1762.
Christie’s soon built up a reputation of being a leading auction auction house, and took advantage of
London’s new found status as the major centre of the international art trade after the French Revolution.
By 1778, James Christie had moved on to art auctions, and arranged the sale of Sir Robert Walpole’s
collection of pictures on behalf of his grandson, George Walpole, bought by Catherine the Great of
Russia for £40,000.
James Christie’s son, also named James, took over the running of the business in 1803 following the
death of his father. In 1823, Christie’s Auction House moved from Pall Mall to its present London
headquarters at 8 King Street in St James’s. In 1848 Christie’s handled the sale of the Duke of
Buckingham’s collection, known as the Stowe House sale, which lasted for 40 days and raised £75,562.
In 1859, the company changed its name to Christie, Manson & Woods, though still known as Christie’s.
Christie’s established its first overseas office in 1958, locating a representative in Rome. The first
overseas salesroom opened in Geneva, where Christie’s holds jewellery auctions. The company now has
10 salerooms around the world, in cities including New York, Paris, Geneva and Hong Kong.
During the Blitz in 1941, Christie’s headquarters suffered a direct hit and moved to Derby House, near
Oxford Street, but returned again to King Street in 1953.
In 1978, Christie’s auctioned Velazquez’s Portrait of Juan de Pareja and it fetched £2.3m. It was the first
work of art to sell for over £1m. The painting now hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
One of the more public aware sale was that of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers which sold for £24.75m in 1987.
Always competing against Sotheby’s, in 1996, Christie’s auction house’s sales surpassed Sotheby’s for
the first time since 1954, however, its profits did not grow at the same pace. From 1993 through 1997,
Christie’s annual pretax profits were about $60 million, whereas Sotheby’s annual pretax profits were
about $265 million for the same years, a significant difference!
In December 1997, under the chairmanship of Lord Hindlip, Christie’s
put itself on the auction block, but it did not attract a bid high enough
to accept. In May 1998, François Pinault’s holding company, Artémis
first bought 29.1 percent of the company for $243.2 million, and
subsequently purchased the rest of it in a deal that valued the entire
company at $1.2 billion.
In 2000, allegations arose of price-fixing between Christie’s and
Sotheby’s. Members of Sotheby’s senior management were fired. Alfred
Taubman, the largest shareholder of Sotheby’s at the time, took most of
the blame. He and Dede Brooks, the CEO were given jail sentences, and
Christie’s, Sotheby’s and their owners also paid a civil lawsuit settlement
of $512 million.

After too many drunken nights my wife decided for New Year I should give up
my whiskey. Well, I had quite a few bottles of whiskey in the cellar, and she insisted

I empty the contents of each and every bottle down the sink, or else. After careful
consideration, I reluctantly agreed and finally proceeded with the unpleasant task.

I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured
the contents down the sink with the exception of a
large double, which I drank. Well, it would be a shame

to pour it all away wouldn’t it.
en, I withdrew the cork from the second bottle, a
fine Highland Malt, with the exception of one glass,
which I drank. I then withdrew the cork from the
third bottle and poured the whiskey down the sink,
which I drank. I pulled the cork from the fourth bottle

down the sink and poured the bottle down the glass, which I drank.
I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next and drank one sink out of it, and threw

the rest down the glass.
I pulled the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork down the bottle.

en, I corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour.
When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand, counted the
glasses, corks, bottles, and sinks with the other, which were twenty-nine, and as the
houses came by I counted them again, and finally I had all the houses in one bottle,

which I drank.

Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents the
week before Christmas. At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to
say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs.

“I PRAY FOR A NEW SKATEBOARD, AND I PRAY FOR A NEW X-BOX AND I
PRAY FOR A NEW TV...”

His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and
said, “Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn’t deaf.”
To which the little brother replied, “No, but Grandma is!”

16 Travel Feature - By Mags Addison

Touring New Zealand ...

Visitors to New Zealand have reached a record high, according to a recent
study. With the UK remaining the strongest European market to visit these
beautiful islands. Their recent Rugby World Cup success, and not to mention
in recent years, the massive publicity and advertising around the mythical
Middle Earth and the Lord of the Rings trilogy – have all made us aware of
what this country has to offer. I have been a specialist agent for Australia
for a number of years, and I’m well used to putting together tailor made
itineraries, flights, and stays for people wanting to visit relatives, or do that
trip of a lifetime. But the last 12 months especially, I’ve been increasingly
getting enquiries for New Zealand. Again, as with Australia, we Brits have
lots of relatives out there – that we now want to visit, or we are drawn by
the diversity of things to see and experience there – so I’ve been busy putting
together either tailor made, or escorted tours of one, or both of the North and South Islands

I’ve heard over the years about New Zealand from members of my family who live there, though, I’ve never been.
But I have to say, the more enquiries, I do there, the more it’s on my bucket list now. A friend who toured the country
some years ago in a rented motor home, told me what a beautiful country it was to visit, and loved it. They said the
scenery was outstanding. So the idea of driving around with your own `home’ is one to really consider, especially if
you can pull off the road, and stop somewhere completely un-spoilt – it really appeals to the senses. And I’ve seen
inside some of these motor homes that are used in both Australia and New Zealand when I’ve done the workshops
while down under. They are very compact and have all mod cons.

There are also a huge variety of escorted touring holidays that you can pick up – and I’ve tailor made these into
itineraries that is a mix of tour, and doing your own thing. The beauty here is you don’t have to work out your route,
or keep to timetables when going from place to place
– It’s all done for you, all you have to do is to sit back and relax. And they all take in the major sights; you just
have to decide how long a tour you want, and if you want to cover both islands.

The final alternative is to really do it yourself and drive to a tailor made itinerary – these can easily be put together
– especially with the specialist tour operators we use, who make suggestions, and know all the distances etc, so
they can make dovetail it together with the best routes to take. They are knowledgeable on which hotels to stay in,
best times of year to visit, weather conditions, and a whole host of helpful information. And if you want to fit it in
towards a much longer holiday travelling on elsewhere, that’s no problem
either.

The only word of caution about New Zealand for a lot of Bits is that
we don’t appreciate just how far away it is - so it’s a factor to take into
consideration when working out how long you want to be away. Those
distances can be killing, so you just can’t `pop’ over there, but need to
work out the best and easiest way to slot in the journey there and back.
And that’s where I come in.

Project Indigo

One boy’s adventure through time and space!

Hi, I’m Tom, a local Doctor Who blogger & I write about my adventures online at
anadventurethroughtimeandspace.com

Recently I visited No Man’s Fort in the Solent, a
filming location for Classic Doctor Who episode
‘The Sea Devils’! I was a guest of AmaZing
Venues and Solent Forts. Children are not
normally allowed on the fort but they made a
special exception for me!
I embarked at City Quay in Portsmouth and
caught a boat called the Ashleigh R.
In The Sea Devils the Third Doctor and Jo
Grant visited the sea fort to investigate why
ships are mysteriously disappearing. The
Doctor had to climb a dangerous ladder to get on to the fort but I was relieved that I had
to walk up a ramp instead! I was expecting the fort to be dark and gloomy - instead it was
light and cheerful as it has been converted into a luxury hotel which opened in April 2015.
All visitors were given a guided tour and learnt about the fort’s history. No Man’s Fort is
a Scheduled Ancient Monument and is one of 30 forts built to defend the UK from the
French under the orders of the Prime Minister, Lord Palmerston. The forts became known
as ‘Palmerston’s Follies’ because by the time they were completed in 1865 the threat had
passed and the technology was out of date.
After a delicious lunch we were free to explore. My companion and I went up to the top-
deck and played Scrabble whilst enjoying views of the Isle of Wight. Also on the deck were
a boules track, a bar, a Hot House, a Fire Pit, a BBQ area and some Hot Tubs. There was

even a helipad which could be useful for materialising
a TARDIS!
There was an even better view from the top of the
lighthouse - it was panoramic and I could see the Isle
of Wight and the mainland. I used some binoculars to
see clearly.
Next I went down to the Upper Level and explored
the luxurious hotel rooms. The rooms were named
after famous ships. There were lots of places to relax
including a snooker room, a pool room and a games
room.
The bottom level was the Sea Level bunker and the
most likely place to run into a Sea Devil! I wondered
if I was standing right above the Sea Devil’s base
which was discovered beneath the foundations of the
fort.
Sadly at 4 o’clock it was time to board the Ashleigh R
for home. I really enjoyed my trip to No Man’s Fort,
the whole day was a real adventure, and it is the
ideal place to go for a special occasion! ‘’

Hello, I‛m Lloyd a 4yr old Staffie who would dearly love
a home of my own, I am a really intelligent boy who needs
to be stimulated, so I will need lots of ongoing training in
an active home with experienced and sensible owners. The

kind people here at Waggy tails say that I‛m very sweet
natured and behave well in the house and sleep well when

it time for bed but I must be the only pet in the home
who will given the chance and the patience become a loving

and loyal member of the family.
For more information on Meisha or any of the other animals in our care

please contact us on 01202 87500, e-mail: [email protected]
or visit our website www.waggytails.org.uk

With Christmas on its way we are desperately in need of short term
fosters for over the Christmas period, we are also in need of long term
Foster Parents too, as we prefer our dogs to live in a home environment so
if you feel this could be you please call us on the number below or contact
us at [email protected] .org .uk. In the lead up to Christmas we will be
out and about at various venues starting on the 7th of December at Tesco‛s
Tower Park, the 9th at Tesco Extra at Castle Lane and Fleetsbridge and
lastly on the 13th of December in Poole. May we also take this opportunity

to wish all our supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and
Prosperous New Year.

Waggy Tails Rescue is a registered charity based in Dorset; we rescue
and rehome dogs that have been abandoned, neglected or otherwise
in need of a new home.
We also find homes for other small furries that may be in our care,
so to find out more you can contact us on the number above
or send donations or letters to:
Waggy Tails Rescue, Helens House, 143 Magna Rd, Canford Magna
Wimborne, Dorset BH21 3AW

The Victoria Park Methodist Drama Group
“THE BELLES OF ST. MICHAEL’S”

February 17th, 18th & 19th - 7.30pm
February 20th - 2.30pm

Victoria Park Methodist Church Hall
Edgehill Road, Winton, Bournemouth

The scene is set in the cluttered drawing room of the Vicarage of St. Michael’s
and All Angels. Here the Rev. Hugh Featherstone’s attempts to write his weekly

sermon have already been disrupted by general dogsbody Dora’s singing and
hoovering; and the arrival of Mrs. Green and her daughter to discuss the latter’s
wedding. The arrival of a letter from the Bishop poses a problem both for Hugh

and the Rev. Justin Wade - vicar of the adjoining parish.

Programmes/tickets : Please call 01202 520482
£7.00 adults - £3.00 students in full time education

We have good access for wheel chair users but request advance notice in order to
re-arrange the seating. This year our profits will be going to Cherry Tree Nursery .

Brainstorm

1. How many squares, of any size, can you find on this chess
board that do not contain a Rook?

2. During the summer I went hiking to a friends home in the country.
On the first day I travelled one half of the distance.
On day two, I travelled one third of the remaining distance.
On day three, I travelled three quarters of the remaining distance.
Yesterday I travelled one half of the remaining distance.
I now have 5 miles left to travel.
How many miles is it from my home to my friends home?

3. A local fisherman caught a large trawler load of mackerel.
He decided to donate some of his fish to the
local community, 1,672 people in all.
To each person over 50 he gave 16 fish and to each person
under 50 he gave 96 fish.
Only 3/4 of the over 50s collected their mackerel and only
1/8 of the under 50s collected their fish.
How many mackerel did the fisherman distribute it total?
Answer on page 38

A women went into the doctors with her newborn twins for their first
medical check up. The doctor asked her if she had any difficulty telling them
apart. The mother gave the doctor an odd look and replied, “No, not at all, this

is Susannah and this is Jeremy.

Contact The Elderly - Volunteer Drivers & Afternoon Hosts Required

Once a month on a Sunday afternoon local elderly people, who are without family in the area, are
taken out by volunteer car drivers for a little ride before going to the homes of volunteer hosts and
hostesses for Sunday afternoon tea.
We only ask our volunteer hosts to entertain up to six elderly people
and two drivers or one driver with up to three elderly people once or
twice a year. A downstairs cloakroom is a must.
Reserve drivers are always wanted when the regulars are unavailable.
This would be possibly two or three times a year.

One September the chief of a Zoe Bellamy
Native American tribe asked his
medicine man if the winter was going BSc.Pod.Med - M.Inst. Ch.Pod
to be a cold one. Sadly the medicine
man too had lost touch with the Chiropodist / Podiatrist
natural world around the Great Lakes.
In truth, neither of them now knew CHIROPODY
how to predict the coming winter. HOME VISITING
So the chief decided to take a modern
approach, and rang the National SERVICE
IN YOUR AREA
Weather Service.
‘We believe it is going to be a cold For total footcare please call
winter,’ the meteorological officer
told the chief and so he went back to 01202 309932
his tribe and told the men to collect
plenty of firewood. A fortnight later 24 HOUR ANSWERING SERVICE
the chief called the NWS and asked for
an update. ‘Are you still forecasting a

cold winter?’ he asked.
‘Yes, we are sure it’ll be very cold’, the

weather officer told him. Concerned
the chief went back to the tribe and
told his people to collect every bit of
wood they could find. Ten days later
the chief called the NWS once more.
‘Yes,’ he was told, ‘It is going to be

one of the coldest winters ever.’
‘How can you be so sure?’ the chief
asked. The man replied: ‘Because the
Native Americans of the Great Lakes
are collecting fire-wood like crazy.’

TIRED OF POTHOLES

DOG POOP VANDALISM

BROKEN STREET LIGHTING

FLYYTIPPING LOOSE PAVING?

REPORT THEM TO THE COUNCIL WITH

.com by

Bumpy ride this morning? View blocked by dumped rubbish?

Potholes and fly tipping are just two of the street faults that can be reported via
the website www.FixMyStreet.com along with vandalism, graffiti, dog fouling
and many other common community issues.

While most of us know that the council are responsible for fixing these things,
we may not know which council, let along which department in which council.
With FixMyStreet, all you have to do is locate the problem on a map, and select
a category: the site then sends it off to the right place to get it fixed.

All reports are published on the site, as well as being sent to the council.
Browsing your own postcode can be interesting, as you soon learn what the
persistent problems are in your area, and whether or not they are being fixed.
There’s also the opportunity to discuss individual reports in the comments
section.

FixMyStreet comes from the UK not-for-profit organisation mySociety, and
is one of its longest-running and most-used services. It is just one of several
projects aimed at making it easier for citizens to get things changed in their
own community. So, next time you see something that needs fixing, be it a
broken paving slab or a flickering streetlight, all you need to remember is

There is no beating the taste of truly fresh
fruit and veg especially, when it’s yours!

Gardening Tips for December

Thankfully December is a quiet month in the garden. It can be cold
and very wet but there are some positive things we can do weather
permitting.
• Prune any overgrowing and congested branches of freestanding
Apple and Pear trees to allow fruiting buds to develop next year.
• Prune any Acers and Vines before Christmas to avoid bleeding
stems.
• Ensure your greenhouse heater is working if you have one.
• Harvest Parsnips, Leeks, Winter Cabbage any remaining root crops
and especially those sprouts.
• Dig over borders and next years’ planting areas incorporating as
much organic material as possible all of which should rot down over the coming months. The birds
will love you for it as they pick up the grubs you have unearthed.
• If you haven’t planted your Spring bulbs you might take a chance now. They may provide a late
Spring show for you.
• Do ensure any outdoor pots are raised off the ground to avoid freezing and waterlogging.
• Make yourself a Christmas wreath using evergreen sprigs from the garden and hedge wrap them
together and tie to shape with wire. Decorate with berries, fir cones, dried orange slices, cinnamon
sticks and wide red ribbon to finish.

Gardening Tips for January

There are few things we can be doing in the garden in January when the weather and the ground
allow us.
• Pruning Gooseberries, Currents and Autumn Raspberries.
• Apply some Sulphate of Potash around the base of fruit plants.
• Winter wash your fruit trees.
• If you didn’t sow Broad Beans in early winter then for a quick
start you can plant them now in pots.
• Clear any plant debris from the ground and allow any frost to
break up the soil and kill off the pests.
• Plan your vegetable crop rotation so as not to grow the same
crop in the same place as last year.

Take care of your feet...
Chilblains

Global warming is blamed for many worldwide disasters but
there has been one benefit as we have not had a really very
cold winter for over twenty years.
Chilblains (Erythema pernio) could be a thing of the past due to mild winters and better
living conditions, especially central heating. If we have a very cold spell now there will
be those who will wonder what this itchy red skin condition is on their legs and feet.

Keeping feet and legs warm with appropriate clothing is important. The best way to
keep warm is layers of clothing, ie two pairs of thin socks are better than one pair of
thick. I recommend thermal insoles for cold feet and for very cold weather fur lined
boots.

Chilblains are made worse by applying heat to the affected
area so keep feet away from the electric fire and hot water
bottles. If needed there are over the counter treatments
to ease the red itchy skin, eg iodine compounds such as
betadine, savlon spray, videne and ointments containing
methyl salicylate and many more. An old remedy for
chilblains was to soak the affected area with their piddle
(urine). This is not an old wives tale, it does actually work,
but there are creams containing manufactured urine (uric
acid) which are obviously far more pleasant to use!

Scratching the irritation will make the problem
a lot worse. Dirty fingernails could cause an
infection and broken chilblains could be the end
result which is a more serious problem requiring
medical help.

For chilblains sake let’s hope our winters remain
mild.
