Scooterly, if you are into fantsy literature, are you familiar with swordandlaser.com. It is a sci-fi and fantasy book club. Probably the majority are into sci-fi, but still a number who are into the fantasy genre. I have begun a couple of groups there (I am obi-ron on that site).
Sounds like you keep busy. I am trying to get up my nerve to work on learning the Irish language. I haven't joined either of the applicable groups on Live Ireland yet, though. Maybe once I actually start on learning a little Irish.
I have never been to Montana - just Wyoming and Colorado. But I know that is a beautiful area. I hope to see it someday. Are you near mountains?
Lol, when I saw your avatar and info, I thought I was looking at my own profile. I love your wolf pic. I'm a keyboard player/song writer, and it looks like we share the same musical interests. If you want to talk, I'll be looking forward to it. If not, sorry for bothering you.
I just came back home after traveling around for twenty or so years, just had to see what the rest of the states and world was like! I forgot how beautiful this state was! You never realize the natural wonders tell you rediscover them!
Actually I have not attended the festival. I went to school in Bozeman and moved after High School in 1988 (We won the state basketball championship in the Irish city of Montana where you are most likely from)
