Name:chickenfeet
Birthdate:Aug 8
Location:Canada
Website:Opera Ramblings - my idiosyncratic opinions on things operatic
John was born in Lancashire which explains his strange taste for black pudding but not much else. After several years spent in a wet cave in the West Pennines he emigrated to Canada in the vain (not to mention stupid) hope of finding better weather.

He's still there.

Current digs are within a short spit of the St.Lawrence Market which has to be one of the world's great food markets but one still can't get decent black pudding there.

I've spent most of the last few years doubling up a day job doing various ehealth things with a rewarding but not especially lucrative sideline as an opera critic.
