no previous part Part 1 of Widdershins Joinery Blog series Part 2: About My Blog »

My name is Robin Gosse, living in a (very) small town on the northern tip of the island-portion of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. We are WAY out in the Atlantic ocean, farther East than New England region of the USA, well above 50 degrees of latitude.

My wife and I recently bought a house with a huge garage, and I’ve begun the adventure of renovating it into a proper woodworking studio. Please visit my blog page and join in my adventure of home ownership, woodworking and general renovations!

This is just a tagline/teaser, but I will add more to this series as I develop more comprehensive posts and content. – Widdershins.

Newfoundland culture is very much a hodge-podge of the settling cultures… Scottish, Irish, English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese… mostly. However every region has their own unique tastes, the farther east you go, the more “british isles” you get, with irish, scottish, english, but the farther west-coast you got the more french, spanish, portuguese you get.

My name is Robin Gosse; my ancestry is Normand after the invasion of William the Conquoror into England in 1066, but my family settled in Spaniards Bay here on the island in the early 1700’s. That said… I’m not sure WHAT I am, but my paternal Grandmother was a second-generation Mi’Qmaw first nations and french descendant. haha

I just keep my head down, enjoy my mixed-race and soak up as much island heritage as I can.

Have your say...
