We are going to the premiere tomorrow as I play
a defense lawyer in the opening scene. Very
exciting. Should be a good night.......
Just saw the premiere....the guy I was
defending was cut from the film so my
speech was cut too. Pity. Great film
though. Very funny.

tallest tree in Ardkinglas Gardens but it feels like the overall
biggest. A wonderful sight.
The other big tree is the tallest in the UK and is another
'British Champion Tree'.
Ardkinglas also boasts a fine collection of rhododendrons
which are looking nice at the moment.
Standing by the tree is my friend Donna who is from
Texas where most things are bigger than they are anywhere

Gallery in North Berwick. This is a painting of Montalcino in
Tuscany. The 'Premier Collection' is a new venture in which the
gallery are exhibiting the very best of Scottish painting with two
paintings from each artist. Viewing by appointment only. Greens
and Blues have two galleries in North Berwick. One is the general
gallery and frame shop and the other is exclusively the 'Premier
Collection'. Sounds good to me.

is Adrian Wiszniewski at the Glasgow Print Studio. It's a
mixture of paintings and prints. As John McKechnie (who

exhibition of paintings in the festival.'
Despite being advertised in the festival brochure as ending
on May 7th, it actually runs until the end of the month.

festival was Jeremy Deller's inflatable Stonehenge. It was
huge and great fun. Adults are not usually allowed on bouncy
castles and the like so this was a great opportunity to have fun.
Sadly it has had its run and is heading off to London for the
Olympics where I've no doubt there will be massive queues to
