You are confusing the abreviation .ca for California with Canada. The Guelph Museum is in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Sorry world and particularly Canada. I actually knew that the exhib was in CANADA but my mad brain went off on its own for a few minutes. Thanks for the correction.

I clearly need a software upgrade to my brain but I don't think that it is going to happen any day soon.

Thanks, Tim, for signing your name. It always much better and more personal from my point of view to reply to someone who isn't anonymous although it is good to hear from anyone, however impersonal.

Cheers to all

I didn't mean to be impersonal. My name is Ron.I was in a hurry and it seemed like the quickest/simplest option. Again my name is Ron and I am a big fan of your site.

Thanks Ron. Much appreciated, and good to hear from you. I know what it is like to be in a hurry!

All the very best
