27th November 2017 - Not always what is seems

Thought for the day:"Apparently, today is Pins And Needles Day. I have a tingly feeling about this one . . "
(thanks to Robert Lloyd)

Last year this photograph went viral as it showed a group of children sitting by Rembrandt's "The Night watch" apparently all playing with their phones instead of enjoying the art around them, in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Many thought this was a perfect metaphor for the way technology was ruining the lives of the young - indeed everyone.

Only, it seems that all is not as it seemed. The Museum had installed a special App which contained guided tours and information about the works on display. As a result, the children who had previously been admiring the works of art with adult tour guides, were then tasked by their teachers to complete and assignment using the Museum App.

All is not as it seems and everything that goes viral is not necessarily true - especially these days

But then again ...

Have a good day 
(Last bottle of Chateau 41 is open - not sure how we get through the rest of the week- wish me luck)

Cheers !
