I am on the news...


News in Azeri - so no reason to link it.

Great-grandson of famous oil industrialist Hajji Zeynalabdin Taghiyev (1838-1924) presented a gift to the Museum of History of Azerbaijan - a set of dinnerware that had belonged to this great man. The ceremony occured in the Presidium of Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan and was linked to the upcoming opening of the museum to the general public after extensive renovation. The museum is a former residence of the late industrialist.

I still have not received your insight on cotton pajamas buttoned all the way to the chin, in light of your French experience

Looking the business in that pic. What were you saying to the microphone?

The point was - will I get back my millions? The answer is no.

What's all this about "cotton pajamas buttoned all the way to the chin, in light of your French experience"?

Are you two referencing information not contained within the blog? That is bad form, as Capt Hook would say, and may lead to lurid speculation.

Yes, guilty as charged. The News story claimed that Nazim lives in France (which is not accurate as he has never lived in France). My comment was a continuation of an email convo as I got mixed up between commenting on here and replying to emails! Let's just say that me and Nazim were very impressed to see the main character in a French movie pop out of bed stark naked on the giant screen of a London cinema. Both of us thought that was rather quaint, the French have some quaint ways of doing things you know...

You are forgiven.
