Morris instruments

Tin whistle, drum, tambourine, beer cans, percussive horns and noise makers

Beasts and fools

  1. My attorney has advised me that I should neither confirm or deny the rumors surrounding this.
  2. Designated scapegoat hobby for FFL - if anything goes wrong or makes a mistake, it's officially Ric's fault.

Beer preference

  • What! No white wine? :-) (Actually, I am a confirmed Coca-Coca addict, and proud of it!)
  • Arrogant Bastard, Guinness, He-brew, Henry's, Murpheys, Newcastle, Pranqster, various Ambers and Pale Ales…depends on who else is buying.

Anything else that needs to be said

I do English Country Dance, Contra, International Folk Dance, and especially enjoy a good Hambo or Waltz (just gimme an excuse), as dancer, caller, and teacher. I also write English Country and Contra dances and tunes, and am always on the lookout for a new mummers play.
