Al, the spline program works by running a 3rd order curve through the
points specified... The little lady is a bit of artwork I did when I
was young and foolish... have also replicated 'beer bottles'...

If you take a look at the spline sub, the solution to the cubic function
is pretty slick (as I recall)... As so often, it is almost never that I
comment my stuff, but mathematically, the solution and back substitution
is pretty slick!

You can save the array's of points and by a little judicious fudging
can use the returned values as extrapolations between the points in
