Do you use other blogging sites apart from LJ or have done so in past?

I use Wordpress for blogging about my medieval arts research (mostly cooking, some costuming and other stuff). It's at Siglindesarts.wordpress.com, should anyone want to check it out.

Do you play any musical instrument or have done in the past?

I studied piano for many years, and did part of a music degree at university. I also played oboe, flute and tuba in high school (and oboe at university). I was the soprano recorder player in a medieval/renaissance group for about a decade - mostly we played dance tunes. I still play the piano from time to time, but not nearly as often as I would like.

What were the children's TV programmes you watched as a kid?

I didn't have access to TV until I was 7, and then there were only two channels. Mr. Dressup and Romper Room or The Friendly Giant when I was on holidays, and Saturday morning cartoons (Flintstones, Bugs Bunny, and Scooby Doo, plus a few weird things like Hercules, Space Ghost and The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show).

What do you think about GM food or organic food?

I think GM food has great potential to reduce pesticide and herbicide use, and possibly to reduce malnutrition (eg golden rice which is rich in vitamin A). I'm not sure that is always how it is used. I would like to buy or grow more organic food. It is so easily at risk though - recently, there was unannounced spraying for giant hogweed not far from here. It may have wiped out local organic farmers as a result.

Where did you grow up and have you been back there?

Military brat. I have driven through a few of the towns in Ontario where I lived. I was happy not to stop. I would like to go back to Europe though. While living in Germany the second time, I did go back to where I had lived in France and that was great. Germany was definitely better the second time than the first.
