Complete aside - Our second eldest son was going to be Mark but Mrs el G. was reading 'Quiet flows the Don' at the time and in a gas and air induced haze son number 2 became Mikhail instead - It stayed!
I was realy interested to hear that the song in question was based on a Ukraine folk song though - It now goes in with 'Those were the days' and 'The Carnival is over' for me. How many more are there?
