A news item in the Manx press brought a smile to my face today with the news that the Manx language is not dead – it’s just critically endangered. I’m sorry, but that has just too many overtones of Monty Python’s Dead Parrot sketch for me.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
