Hello Owls,

Good to be back on the perch with you, a huge THANK YOU to Blackbird for being such a super deputy owl and posting for the owls these past few nights along with some interesting quotes and lovely pictures.

I have had a wonderful but very busy long weekend celebrating my daughter's birthday..... the big one.! We have laughed, wined and dined, and danced our socks off.

Just going to take a tour of the site before lamps out later.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Camilla's Avatar I have just discovered that one of my son's partner's ancestors was John Dowland. An English Renaissance composer and singer and lutenist. 1563-1626.

Rose Tremain's 1999 novel Music and Silence is set at the court of Christian IV of Denmark some years after Dowland's departure and contains several references to the composer's music and temperament.

It was generally thought that Dowland was born in London -Westminster. Irish historian W.H.Grattan Flood claims that he was born in Ireland.

Music and History for all the owls tonight.!Smile

Unfortunately I am having problems accessing music to post as video, it says I need a flash player..... I have one.!

John Dowland

Blackbird's Avatar I can imagine what a great time you all had- making wonderful family memoriesVery Happy And finding out such fascinating information- isn't genealogy great? It makes history come alive.

Has everyone gone home? Hopefully you have some great weather in which to resume your daily walks with Daisy- taking deep breaths of crisp fall air. Our beautiful days continue, each one almost perfect but a change with rain is predicted for the weekend. On the other hand, they have said that several times since September and nothing has come of it.

Sweet dreams, owls and larks.

Camilla's Avatar Thank you BB and Lily.

Yes BB, family have all gone home now, missing them already. Lovely autumn walks with Daisy today but very cold, wrapped up warm though.
