I love Irish folk, both the music and dancing. I have danced a bit myself, but I'm not very good - yet! I count myself very lucky 'cause many of my best friends are very good Irish musicians and I hang out with them as often as I can :-)
Apart from that I'm a Ph.D. student at the Geological Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark, where I study the palaeogeographic component to the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event using world wide brachiopod occurrences (genera and species) for the whole Ordovician period (~488-444 million years ago).
Some of my other interests are trekking, skiing, scuba diving, martial arts, traveling, cooking fancy foods (sushi among others), reading Fantasy books (Discworld, Lord of the Rings) and watching good movies.
Currently Reading? (Books Magazines etc)
Wyrd Sisters (Discworld)

The comp is a very dry business plan comp through RMIT Uni, my old alumni, but interesting in that I have to work with an undergrad, hence the need to communicate through facebook. Thought I'd ask my daughter to enter with me, as she is doing Architecture at RMIT but she was less than enthusiastic, still got a case of the "oh Daaaads" about her which is cute.
The most famous of our folk festivals is the Port Fairy Festival

Sorry, bit of an in joke with the cheese, I am on an arts committee with a Danish artist here, and I was chastised for suggesting that Denmark doesn't have major exports, meaning unlike Australia with its minerals.
I have pasted her website link below
It was her input about the cheese.
I am more interested in the furniture, anyway, what is the weather like on the other side?
