I know- I saw that headline this morning and thought the same thing!
We were at your mom's apartment last night for Grandpa Sharda's 80th birthday!! Theo has gotten so active, it's adorable--he dances all the time, and bounces around.
It would be funny if all the cousins ended up in Florida--it's the only place not job-related that Matt and I would move to. (Well, except England, but that'd have to be job-related to work!)
lol! I just posted about the same thing!
Norwegians are way too trusting :/
You know I've always wondered about what the thieves do with the art.
It's not like they can just sell it anywhere, or even display it.
Maybe they will list it on ebay? hehehe
they hold it ransom basically. they tell the government they will return it unharmed for some silly amount of money.
They sell it to collectors through agents on the black market, actually. Ransom is only what happens sometimes, and its usually not with the real one but some upstart looking to make some money out of the theft.
What a loss!!! Its unbelievable. It is possible for them to find a buyer, but not easy. I was thinking that perhaps they were hired to steal it for a buyer they already had? OK, maybe I watch too many movies. but what else would they do with it? ebay it LOL?
I think it's strange that the article said that "these paintings are so well known they will be impossible to sell"--uh, no, I think NOT! They are well known & that's EXACTLY why they WOULD sell. Sure not on any ligitimate market, but come on...there are LOADS of people who would pay LOADS of money to own those. Sheesh!
Wow! That would be great if you sisters could live down by you! Think of the savings alone on airfare...now you just have to convince the rest of your family to move. hee hee!

loljas you sound like youre getting addicted to final fantasy like Kayti
Lol, it is pretty addictive......
All of the online role-playing games are really!! I've been through EverQuest, and then Dark Age of Camelot, and now this one, hehe. I've got too much self-control though to ever let it interfere with my "real" life =)
lol dont let it stop your painting or il get angry...
Oh Jasmine it's so nice to have a sister close isn't it? My only sister lived in florida and I had such huge phone bills cuz I missed her so much, now that she lives back up here it's nice getting to see her whenever I want to..
Man, I hope they BOTH move down here! That would be great! Right now Matt & I are the only ones in our families who live in Florida. I visit up there a lot, and they visit down here a lot, but it would just be so nice to have them both here.....
that sucks. i hope that painting stays safe wherever it might be.
