Grain mill "De Vlinder" anno 1913
Netherlands, Deil (aan de Linge), April 2005

The front side of this mill is shown in the picture at the right.

My contribution for proverbmonday 9 January 2007

"Om een schepel graan moet men geen molen bouwen" or "Men moet om een bak zaad geen molen bouwen" or
"Wie maar een mud koren te malen heeft, moet geen molen bouwen"

Free translation:

"One should not build a mill for a bushel of grain"

meaning that one should not exaggerate.

That is a beautiful photograph. I love the windmill. We happen to have a windmill right here and I've taken a picture. I will post it at my earliest chance. It is located in our city park, so the surrounding is not quite a beautiful as the surrounding you depict in your photograph.

Beautiful Photo. Great Proverb.

wonderful contribution
en een zeer ware spreuk
bepaalde mensen in de regering zouden dit op hun muur moeten hangen:)

Inderdaad zijn deze "molenspreekwoorden" maar al te vaak van toepassing op kabinets- en ook kamerleden! Door hun drang om hun PR te verrijken, blazen ze de zaken nogal eens op!
