I doubt that that's it... I'm pretty sure the two artists I guessed are both alive. :-\\

Good quiz ceramics. I like the hidden theme idea. Congrats to Gaylon, I puzzled over it a couple of hours, and reckon the year of birth answer might be about the only thing I didn't consider (very devious). Clever stuff! 8) 8)


Why thank you, 70sto80sGUY!

I'm gonna give you some karma for your kind words!!  8)

Hi Ceramics

Blimey! Egads! Gadzooks! or something like that. All this karma is suddenly flowing in. I feel like a rich man. Gonna have to remember who all you nice people are that gave me a boost, so I can send some of it back your way. Still, I have to wait for 100 posts b4 I can do that. But at the rate I've been going last couple of days, that shouldn't be too long. In the mean time even Boy George is impressed by all this Karma Chameleon stuff. Bye George, 'simply spiffing', 'what what'?! ;) 8)


I'm glad you've joined us, 70sto80sGUY...and I've no doubt that you'll have your post count built up in no time!  8)
