"Lindner is one of the leading coffin producer in Europe. The Lindner Calendar has been very popular for many years. Is it controversial? It
certainly is. Do ordinary coffins matchto naked girls? No, but Lindner
coffins definitely do – quality, beautiful ornaments, modern design."
The Calendar 2013 can be ordered on this website. The whole income from
the calendar's sale is given to the charity. The coffin producer is the
patron of art of the „Ptaszarnia” project made by the Community Center in Wągrowiec.

were compensations too, like home-baked bread because store-bought was
way too expensive.
part, it was also to make us good guests. We were taught that when you
went to someone's house for dinner, you ate whatever they served you and
said thank-you very much.
This accounts for my lack of patience with
vegans and the various kinds of vegetarians at large in the world to
That said, I am not sure I could have eaten many of these funky foods and said "Thank-you very much" afterwards...
