I'm just interested to see how many mail artists in the UK right now. Are you one?

Sad news just in that Dawn lost her long fight with cancer recently.  Deepest sympathy goes out to all her friends and family.Continue

Just a reminder in case any of you missed it. As part of the CURIOUS THINGS exhibition now on at Special Collections, MMU in Manchester. John Held is parachuting in as he returns to  USA via his flight from Budapest to do a talk about mail art and related stuff at 4:45pm in the All Saints Library, 3rd Floor, All Saints, MMU. MANCHESTER on the 25th February.  There will also be a tour of the exhibition, rubber stamping, exchange of ATC's etc. photo opportunities!  The exhibition will stay open until 7pm. for those who can't make the talk but want to meet up.

Anyone in touch with Ona Doddle?  She came to the CURIOUS THINGS exhibition on Saturday apparently but didn't leave any forwarding address or number. Any clues greatly appreciated.

Yet one more death announcement that made me stop and stand still - when I heard his age. Hearing too many of these led to me making this self-portrait earlier in the year.

Yes, fonts can only sustain you for so long!   The Bonzos were a big part of my listening pleasure from the 60's onwards.  He will be greatly missed by many who loved that sort of  British musical eccentricity. I must watched that "How sweet...." too- thanks for mentioning it!

He did tell me that he had retired from mail art madness to concentrate on fonts.  I guess once it's in the blood . . .

Been watching 'how sweet to be an idiot ' on you tube.  Neil may not have been a God like Clapton et al, but he had a huge influence on my life one way or another . . .

Yes, very sad day - and he was only 75 - two years old than me - makes you think!

R I P Neil Innes.

The Bonzos changed my way of looking at the world; and that was just the start . . .
