  2. Art without vomit…. I saw an interesting show of sculpture by Paul Smith and paintings by Nicola Slattery which opened on Satureday in Cambridge UK. It’s still on and runs for a few weeks … worth a visit unless you only rate shock art or sick in which case you will be very dissapointed.

  3. Earl, remember to put the http:// in front the www of your website address, otherwise, if you start with www it comes up as an error.
