Scots-Irish (SI) ancestry. Orange Irish early immigration to USA. Typical SI temperament, i. e., flinty, aggressive, political minded. J. D. in law. Play classical piano. Like Irish music as it sounds same as music heard in home state, Kentucky. Keep on putting it on the web. Love it! Regards, Hal
Classical, big band (played in a band), instrumental orchestra symphonies, esp. Shastakovich, Mozart. Soul revived when hearing the traditional Irish music and dancing from your site. Just like my childhood in KY. Raised on classics, piano, etc. Accompanied chorus in high school. Like music that is ancestral, classical - anything really good.
Currently Reading? (Books Magazines etc)
Tech books on metal casting, machining, repairs, etc. - Built my own shop.
This is an easy place to learn to navigate and have fun. Check out the chat room some time, there are wonderful people in there from all over the world. Steve from Arizona is a motorcycle enthusiast and Clare de Loon practices law. Law is too political for me, found that out the hard way, or at least in a disappointing way. But I agree with your breakdown, especially the 85% common sense.
Where in Ky was home for you? I use to work with the horses in Lexington.
Actually Hemidemi... is a musical term (a 1/64th note) it's archaic and out of date. Ja Ich Spreche ein weinig Deutsch, aber... not very good. Took 4 years of German in school but that's been a while!!! Infused music is what I call the collective Celtic genres - the more diversified and polyphonic kinds that draw from or combine different cultures in music. An example would be Afro-Celt. I am not a big fan of theirs, but find some of their stuff educational. :)
Welcome to Live Ireland Hal!
You'll find plenty of Irish mixed ancestries in here with lots of music and entertainment and general craziness.
Where'd you go to law school, and are you practicing law now?
