Dan, sorry if we appear to have ignored you - messages go to the webco who sends them back to me and I don't ignore any. Please see my pm.
We've swapped CDs with German Cara who I really like. We took the name in 2000 from the word "friend" in Irish.
Gnu - the artist with the knack of doing things (the very same one who despite never been trained to read or play music figured-out the Courante from Bach's D min Partita for violin) has now started to do some kind of lino printing in her shed. She is a star. http://www.janebeharrell.com/
is her interwhatsit so have a look at her monotypes and stuff.
Huge thanks for the encouragement and the supportive comments - we really appreciate it.
