I'm Dietmar living in Oberfranken in a small spot in the north of Bavaria, Germany. But actually my home town is Leipzig.
Quite three years ago I decided to learn English. For a opportunity to listen this language I was looking at internet for a radio station with an English speaking program. So by the way simply coincidental I found 'Live Ireland'. After two years as a permanent listener I try to get in touch with people who have a similar interest about the Emerald Island where I already stood five times. My passion for this island based on a experience from the late seventies. But this is an other story.
My hobbies are music and I'm a musician myself. But over the last couple of years I play music more for my own pleasure and for my friends. No time.
I'm also interested in photography. I like to read a fascinating book for relaxing. And I like a good chat with other people, best in an Irish Pub.
'So be easy and free when you drinking with me I'm a men you don't meet every day'. Or in other words '... you can meet every day' ;).
All kind of music that come from the heart. Jazz, Blues, definitely Irish Music. My favoured musicians in Irish Music at the moment are Christy Moore, Mary Black and Sharon Shannon. But I like many other music and musicians as well, from A like Joan Armatrading to Z like Frank Zappa.
Currently Reading? (Books Magazines etc)
'High Noon' by Nora Roberts and 'Maria Stuart' by Margaret george.
"Nollaig Shona Duit", "Happy Christmas" to you and your family and a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. I will be leaving for Ireland on January 8 and returning on the 15th. I will be sure to post all pictures and of course throw back a few pints for you. Talk to you soon!!!!!
Gruess dich, Dietmar! Das sind aber nette fotos von Inis Oirr. Ich bin auch da vor ein paar Jahre gewesen -- habe Bodhran studiert. Bitte um Verzeihung wenn es an Grammatik fehlt. Good to meet you! Keep in touch.
Hi Dietmar, i was viewing your picture and i heard the sunny dream song.
I have heard of a remake of that song from one of my favorite irish singer Hayley Westenra. in fact she's from Autralia but live in Ireland now, she got back to her root !
She sing Sonny, touching story of a mother who sing that song to her boy child.
she have a lovely voice.
I did not know this song was already existing in another format.
thank for putting it on your page :)

Hello Dietmar. In regard to your question, a 81c filter is a Kodak filter that gives a warming tone to a color image. It had a combination of red and yellow. It was used mostly in transparency film and came in grades of 81, 81A,81B and 81C.
Hi Dietmar, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I've been having trouble getting my webcam to work; and if that isn't enough, the mike in my headset has stopped working. I have a couple of questions if you don't mind. When you posted your song, was it a video orjust audio? also, what equipment do you use? I'm really stymied. :-( Colleen
