first_img0Shares0000Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi celebrates after scoring his second goal during the Spanish Liga football match against Espanyol at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on September 9, 2017 © AFP / LLUIS GENEMadrid, Spain, Sep 9 – Lionel Messi’s hat-trick saw Barcelona move four points clear of Real Madrid at the top of La Liga as Ousmane Dembele marked his debut with an assist in a 5-0 rout of local rivals Espanyol on Saturday.Earlier, Madrid paid for the absence of the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo and a series of missed chances by Gareth Bale as they were held to a shock 1-1 home draw by newly-promoted Levante. Barca made no such mistake as for all their early season off-field problems, Ernesto Valverde’s men have taken maximum points from their opening three La Liga games.Messi led the way with a virtuoso performance, but his opener also needed a huge slice of luck as he was wrongly not flagged offside from Ivan Rakitic’s through ball before blasting into the top corner.Barca’s second arrived thanks to a counter-attack from an Espanyol corner led by Messi and Luis Suarez before Jordi Alba’s low cross was slotted home at the near post by the Argentine.“It is a privilege to play with the best player in the world,” said Suarez.“Game-by-game he keeps showing that Messi will be around for a long time to come.”Real Madrid’s Marcelo (right) in action during a Spanish league match against Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, on September 9, 2017 © AFP / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUMessi put the outcome beyond any doubt by rounding off his hat-trick with another sharp finish from Alba’s cut-back.Dembele has the unenviable task of replacing the departed Neymar and Barca’s 105 million-euro man had to wait until 22 minutes from time for his debut as he replaced Gerard Deulofeu to a standing ovation.He showed why Barca have made the 20-year-old the third most expensive player ever as his pinpoint cross was swept home by Suarez to round off the scoring after Gerard Pique had headed home Barca’s fourth.However, even a fine display didn’t dissuade the bad feeling towards Barca’s under-fire board after a chaotic summer in the transfer market and splits between the boardroom and the dressing room, with Messi and Andres Iniesta yet to sign extensions to their contracts which expire in 2018.Suarez’s fifth goal was met with chants for president Josep Maria Bartomeu to reign.– Much-changed Madrid held –At the Santiago Bernabeu, a much-changed Madrid paid a heavy price for a slow start as they dropped points at home for the second consecutive game.A Levante long-throw from the right was allowed to bounce inside Madrid’s six-yard box before Ivi Lopez spun and fired across Kiko Casilla into the far corner after just 12 minutes.“We can’t be happy with our performance, above all in the first half,” said Real boss Zinedine Zidane.Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale controls the ball during a Spanish league match against Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, on September 9, 2017 © AFP / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOU“We don’t need to go crazy. We need to have patience and think about the next game, which is just around the corner.”The hosts were dealt another blow midway through the first half as Karim Benzema limped off and with no other natural striker on the bench, Bale was forced to play as an auxiliary centre-forward.Madrid levelled nine minutes before half-time when Sergio Ramos’s towering header was parried by Raul Fernandez, but Lucas Vazquez bundled home the rebound.Bale then had a huge chance to turn the game around, but was denied by a smart stop from the Levante keeper as he tried to curl the ball home with the outside of his left foot.Marcelo saw a fierce effort from the edge of the box turned behind by Fernandez, but the Brazilian appeared to kick out at Jefferson Lerma as he hit the ground and was shown a straight red card.Despite their numerical disadvantage, Madrid still nearly grabbed all three points as Toni Kroos’s effort from the edge of the area clipped the outside of the post.Atletico Madrid also trail Barca by four points as without the suspended Antoine Griezmann they drew a blank in an intense 0-0 draw at Valencia.Sevilla moved up to second, just two points behind the leaders, as goals from Paulo Henrique Ganso, Wissam Ben Yedder and Nolito secured a 3-0 win over Eibar.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Gone With the Wind Mansion set for Auction – Take a Look

first_imgThe Georgia mansion that inspired one of the homes in Gone With the Wind will be auctioned at the end of July 2019.  Twelve Oaks is the name of the plantation home of the Wilkes family in the novel, and aristocratic Ashley Wilkes is the man that Scarlett O’Hara obsesses over for years, to the chagrin of Rhett Butler. Built in 1836, this real-life “Gone With the Wind” Southern mansion in Covington, which was originally called the Harris Plantation, was named one of the Top 10 Antebellum Sites in Georgia and is on the National Register.  As the novel was being adapted, author Margaret Mitchell reportedly saw a photo of the home in the Atlanta Journal, and sent a clipping of it to the film’s production team with a handwritten note saying, “I like this for Ashley’s home.”Twelve Oaks at twilight.

In 1903 they sold the home to Nathanial S. Turner, a cotton broker who owned Covington Mills. The home eventually acquired a new name, Whitehall.  However, the home fell into disrepair in the 1930s.Master Bedroom. Courtesy of Target AuctionsSalvatore Study. Courtesy of Target AuctionsBedroom.

An article published at the time said, “Covington’s beautiful old houses were first opened to the public in 1948 for a tour sponsored by the Covington Garden Club… More than 2,500 actually descended upon the little city…Police tried vainly to handle the constantly swelling tide which poured in…from all directions. Visitors came from as far away as New York and California. An antique dealer expressed amazement at the beautiful homes and their handsome furnishings.”Balcony. Courtesy of Target AuctionsPool Area.

The famous barbecue at Twelve Oaks made use of the long-gone Busch Gardens in Pasadena, an estate built by the Busch brewing family. Remnants of the landscaping can still be seen in gardens of the houses around Arroyo Boulevard between Bellefontaine Street and Madeline Drive–the gardens also stood in for the grounds of “Xanadu” in Citizen Kane.Related Article: Art Deco House with Original Vintage Furnishings For Sale – Take a TourArchitectural Digest wrote, “Though Gone With the Wind was filmed on a set, Twelve Oaks has served as a filming location for other productions including The Vampire Diaries, Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys, and Halloween II.“For more information please visit the Target Auctions websitelast_img read more
