    yeah that's it !!!!! :-0
    I'll be interested to see it IRL....when I go down to the gallery to pick up the "Pig"

    Sir William was very debonaire wasn't he....though he preferred to hang out at the pub with his mates...who called him Bill :-D

    I'd hang out with Bill in the pub any day of his choice, Kim.

    I'd even rack the billiards table and shoot a few balls just to see what he could do with them. Then again, I bet that girlies weren't allowed in the bars then---BooHooo!


  • Kim 23.8.07

    you would have a great time down at the Wangi Wangi pub (club)...they're not sexist there :-D...and I bet you'd give them a run for their money too !!!!

    Very interesting Kim. Thanks for sharing. It is nice to get to know all the different things around the world going on to promote art. In the U.S. it is art auctions. Especially Western and Native American. They put down wildlife art then Civil War art and don't look to be slowing down but gaining even more ground. Astounding. Thanks again for sharing.

    Did you know that there's a way to legally "steal" traffic from
    high-traffic websites and redirect it all to your website?

    Well, I didn't.

    But, there's a new free site that just launched today, and it
    explains it all in plain English (for once)!

    I'd *highly* recommend that you take a look at this if you're
    interested in driving a lot of free traffic to your website:

    Exit Explosion

    I know you're itching to find out how it works...


    PS I contacted you because you are in blog roll. This is the chance that we could get more traffic. Have a nice day to you.

    hi Boyd
    following the art auctions is fascinating and I imagine the US would be at the top...I know they have some great art competitions...
    thanks for dropping in Boyd :)

    hi Edward
    I had to modify your comment as I think the link was causing an error in my recent comments....sorry I checked out the site....but the pop ups are a worry....and when I inserted the code (which I have removed)...I was getting page error warning...and my recent comments box is not showing.....
    hope you are well ....have a great day.. :)
