Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Keith — It's a terrarium, sometimes known as a fernarium, for tiny species of fern, originally designed as doll's house furniture, but became popular in their own right.   A luxury version mounted on a mirror plateau was termed a fernpergne.

Now that's a word Scrabble players should remember, Bernard..... it should be enough to get a good battle or maybe even divorce going!

You could probably have a very good battle with them - which may well lead to divorce, Ivo - sounds painful.  :wsh:
