Two for mirth…?

What’s up with the name of this site, you ask?

It comes from an old rhyme about crows, one version of which goes like this:

One for sorrow
Two for mirth
Three for a wedding
Four for a birth
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret not to be told
Eight for Heaven
Nine for Hell
Ten for the Devil himself

My name is James Rook. A rook is a type of crow. And now you know.
