Jon. W., I guess it's ok by me. I still don't quite know what Tinwhistlers Mutha was charging me with. I thought I mentioned my interests as an amateur historian of folk and old popular songs and tunes, and I made no claim to be an expert on any aspect of this, but I guess that was on another thread.

For one of the short articles and notes I published in the 'Folk Music Journal' of the EFDSS, I got about 6 reprints. This is the sole compensation I've ever gotten in any form for anything to do with my studies of old songs. No expenses of mine along this line have ever been compensated for in any way (well, maybe I inadvertently walked out from work with a ball point pen in my pocket a few times). I trust that does not make me a professional or expert.
