Well... last's night talk was highly entertaining and really quite interesting... things like Chinamaniacs, porcelain, blue and white china, red clay teapots, Oscar Wilde? i think I have that right.. and many other details were covered. The speaker is famous for his Antique Road Show tv series... and he really was a delight. It was held in a church which was rather intriqueing to me.. being raised catholic...

I think I would have loved to meet Oscar Wilde.
