Thanks for posting that, Kerry. Very interesting and some very interesting paintings.

I'll be visiting the Archibald exhibition and will be taking my camera with me. Not sure if I'll be allowed to take any pics inside the gallery, but will try.  ;)  :D

Any pics I get, I will post at BetterMost  :D

Thank you, Kerry.  Of course, "Heath" stands out.  I also very much liked Barry McCann's "Simpatico".

Keep us posted!

There's an article in People magazine about the federal investigation into Heath's death. A number of doctor's are being investigated.

Again, sorry if this is a duplicate posted link, but there's a commentary in New York Magazine that's a must-read for both Brokies and Heath fans generally.

The part about how Heath has been portrayed in news accounts in the form of brief glimpses that showed only one part of his life and character is a kind of eerie coda to the discussions about the "snapshot" approach in much of BBM.

I'm glad they're investigating.  The article said that one of the doctors was in California -- which makes sense -- but another was in Texas.  

I know all the investigating in the world won't make a difference in Heath's case, but maybe it will help someone else....

Ledger's Kombi stolen in Sydney: report
Friday Feb 29 23:34 AEDT
A Kombi van owned by the late Australian actor Heath Ledger, which he left for safekeeping with a Sydney-based mate, has been stolen.

The green-coloured 1975 model Volkswagen van was reportedly stolen from outside a Bondi home about the time of the actor's death last month.

The vehicle is valued at $70,000 due to Ledger's fame and also its extensive modifications, according to News Limited reports.

Ledger is believed to have given the van to his long-time friend Trevor DiCarlo when he sold his $7 million Bronte home in 2006, and returned to the US to live.

 
 
 
It was last seen in the driveway of DiCarlo's Bondi home around January 20.

Ledger's grieving father Kim, who is sorting out his son's estate, reported the van stolen to Waverley police a week ago, News Ltd said.

Heath's van was older than he was.

Ya gotta love him!
