If some of our more frequent list contributors will send me (privately)
short 4 or 5 sentence biographies I will collect them over the next 10
days and then publish them on the List for all to read in a single
"file". I for one would like to know a bit about who Ellie, Peter,
Otto, Jim, Ian, Jennifer, Brian, Chris, Priscilla, Alan, etc., etc,
etc., ....... are. I know it's non of my bloody business, but I'm only
suggesting a volunteer operation so there is no obligation to
participate, and a single posting in 10 days would, I think, not
interfer with the business of SCD too much. I'm not talking life
history here, just some sense of who you are, or who you would like us
to think you are.
Dancing for twenty-seven years. Retired steam fitter. Live in a tent
near Timbuktu with my seventh wife. My favourite dance is the Mairi's
Wedding passing left shoulders. I teach an intermediate class every
Tuesday to my 18 grandchildren.
Then when Joe sent a message to the List I would immediately think, "Oh,
yeh, Joe Blow, he's the one who prefers left shoulders."
If I get as many as 8 replies I'll go ahead. Fewer and I'll forget it.

Not really much of a dancer, I'm a Scottish fiddler and play for SCD in a
Southern California (USA) dance band; also music director of Scottish
Fiddlers of Los Angeles. Owner of Fiddlers Crossing, source for Celtic
music books, recordings & videos, including some SCD items. I'm also an
animal behavior researcher at the Los Angeles Zoo, currently working on a
project with chimpanzees. Favorite activity in (limited) leisure time:
Reading mysteries, especially British historical mysteries.
