CD in Play: the dollar store jesus, assorted rehersal outakes

Whilst I really want to get my teaching certificate and teach in either Wales or the western areas of England, (also open to Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man) I still would really love to spend some quality time in Iceland.

Isle of Man? Why the heck would you want to live there?

I suppose the same inquiry could be made about Qatar. Isle of Man has history. It is beautiful. And it has the TT Races.

I'm in Qatar cause da pay is good, like almost every other expat. Makes for an interesting change for a bit as well.

As for the Isle of Man I was there for a few days one summer and while it was nice it became readily apparant that there isn't much to it. I asked some Manxmen what they do in the winter (since the island is small and the landscape pretty bleak) and they said "Drink. It's about all you can do".

The coworkers who were with me all agreed that to live there you'd have to enjoy a very quiet lifestyle. And this was back when we all lived in Bermuda, not exactly the Manhattan of the Atlantic.

Call it a change of pace then. Kind of like life in Southern Saskatchewan: you make your own fun.

Actually, I think that photo of iceland ranks as one of the most beautiful satallite shots I have ever seen.

Too true. Sometimes you get the crazies, but I credit my imagination and creativity to many winter nights as a kid having to entertain myself. As an adult, even better...really encourages the development of a hobby. Wouldn't be for the more social type, but for someone like me who can be happy for long periods just puttering with the company of J it is usually a good thing. As long as you can get out for walks, it sounds OK to me.
