No Williams connection at all, as noted in the escher furniture post comment of a few days ago. Purely cocktail chatter. While a great many of the directly Williams-related posts are extremely interesting and produce many comments, I find a steady diet too content-rich for my aged digestive system. I try to throw in a piece of candy, the occasional cookie. or even, God help us, a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine blahblah.
