There's nothing like some rollicking humour to spice up your school days, especially mid-winter. Robert Service is one of the best; known as the Bard of the Yukon..

Years ago in the dark nights of January, Donna entertained the family with Robert Service ballads after dinner. Now, we have recitations on You Tube videos to add to the fun. Enjoy the following links.
