Pérez Simón[edit]

Had thought of starting Juan Antonio Pérez Simón myself. I've added it to my list and will do a DYK nom shortly. Edwardx (talk) 13:55, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. That must mean it's not too late for Audrey White and Phyllis Digby Morton, or am I too optimistic? Digby Morton's a little weak on notability, truth be told. Philafrenzy (talk) 14:02, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
Today is the last day for Digby Morton, but sadly you will need to nominate it yourself - "according to the new rules that went into effect as of November 21, all nominations, whether self-nominations or nominations of articles by others, require a QPQ review." Edwardx (talk) 10:16, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I saw the notices but haven't had a moment to find out what a QPQ is. Can you get them at Waitrose? Is it one of those devices in orange plastic that make your garden sprinkler work better? Thanks for doing one on Simon. Digby Morton is a little weak so I will leave that one. Where does this leave Audrey White and Dolores of Ziegfeld fame? Philafrenzy (talk) 12:56, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
Well, I've done the nom for Audrey, but someone (hint, hint) has to do the quid-pro-quo review of another DYK nom. And you still have three days to nominate Dolores. If I could make meaningful contributions to either and plausibly claim a co-credit, I'd help out, but as both are pretty comprehensive articles, I can't see much scope. I did think about a new article, but there is good enough coverage at Waitrose#myWaitrose_loyalty_card. And congrats on your first pub article - plenty more opportunities. With a little research, nearly all central London pubs seem to have notable drunks regulars. Edwardx (talk) 19:10, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
My Reader's Digest Book of Home Maintenance had no instructions on fitting a QPQ. On the bright side I now know how to change a tap washer. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:48, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Marquis of Granby, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Time Out. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Curious[edit]

Dolores Costello, Ziegfeld girl, by Alfred Cheney Johnston, ca. 1923.jpg

Were they two Dolores at Ziegfeld - or is it the same? Hafspajen (talk) 20:55, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

At least two! That was a popular stage name then. See this one too and the last section of that article. Philafrenzy (talk) 21:07, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Angerer[edit]

Is this the one? the quarry?

Try to say looted art somewhere, anywhere. Hafspajen (talk) 14:32, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Section Paris - ref? Hafspajen (talk) 15:00, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
I formed that impression but can't find the source now. I will reinstate the section when I have the material to back it up. Philafrenzy (talk) 15:11, 2 December 2014 (UTC)


_--------------------------------- Second thought - Compensation was paid later to the Städel Museum for the Van Gogh and the Folkwang Museum for the Cézanne but at a fraction of the paintings true worth. - Was that the German state or Angerer who payed that compensation? Hafspajen (talk) 21:22, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

My reading of Lindsay is that he paid it personally, if that means anything in reality. Philafrenzy (talk) 23:14, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

OK, I think all looks good. Hafspajen (talk) 23:32, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

I am trying to work out which Daubigny's Garden it was. Philafrenzy (talk) 00:18, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
No luck, it's not clear which one it is. Philafrenzy (talk) 01:36, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
How's the quarry, is it this one? Hafspajen (talk) 01:49, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
I can't be sure about that one either. Cezanne was inclined to paint the same thing over and over again (as I am sure you know). Philafrenzy (talk) 01:53, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
That is very true, I mean he was just crazy about apples and stuff - same apples all the time ... Face-smile.svg. Hafspajen (talk) 02:05, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
Same mountain all the time! Philafrenzy (talk) 02:13, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
Slight lack of fantasy? Or he could't think of turning that easel the other way ... OK, just joking - there was some scientific explanation to go with it - but since he is not my real favorite, don't remember. No, not easy to know which mountain that was ... Face-smile.svg Hafspajen (talk) 02:20, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
His easel got stuck in the mud. Then there is this. Philafrenzy (talk) 02:24, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes, he is as I remembered him, same mountain and apples, but this girl is a bit of a surprise, not bad, that one, eh? Nah, Monet can paint the same thing over and over and still he is not boring. Hafspajen (talk) 02:28, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
Is that a Rubens? Philafrenzy (talk) 02:40, 3 December 2014 (UTC)
A Cezanne... surprise! Hafspajen (talk) 02:41, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

Walter[edit]

Can't find Walter under 4 Dec, do you want me to look at it? Did you nominated it? Hafspajen (talk) 16:20, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, it quickly moved to prep area 6. I assume that is some sort of secret government installation where they store UFOs. Philafrenzy (talk) 16:30, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
