This fine singer recently passed away. He left behind some great work, including his setting of "The Wild Geese", or "Norland Wind" as some know it. You'll find a recording of this here, along with the words, including a translation from the original Angus dialect. Enjoy.
I'm having a rather different mid-life crisis. I've been unwell for three years with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis - M.E. I've found it to be a Major Encumbrance. I've lost my job, we've sold our house and moved to somewhere rented, and recast a lot of plans. How will we cope? What will happen next?
58 years old, became unemployed in April 2009 because of ME after 31 years as a Social Worker.
I've been married for nearly 33 years to Susanneke, and we have two sons and a daughter, all now astoundingly grown up.
