I much prefer cats to dogs. Anyone would have to love dogs if they're going to own one and be prepared to pick up the 'doings'! I'm not squeamish about other things, but dog pooh....BIG no no!

I recently met someone involved in this show who was impressed by the integrity of the producers. It will be interesting to see how it turns out after editing. Hopefully it will be more about the potting than the characters.

On a slightly different track - it's difficult to demonstrate effectively to a large group, but one thing I found that worked really well, was to use a video camera and project it through the digital projector. Every class has these in the vast majority of UK Primary schools, not sure about Secondays(High School). Great for all demonstrations in my experience.

celia, you painted the rust on the KILN, not the bowl, right??? recently some black spots have appeared on (naturally, only the white ones) several pots. cannot figure out what they can be but i have ordered some of L&L's brush on finish for the inside of the lid. the spots only happen on the top shelf.[/quote]

Yes Old Lady - on the kiln!!! The black flecks are still on the bowl!

Joel - I think I need an electrician friend for this. If I get on to it I'll let you know the outcome.
