AFAIK she was named after both her grandmothers, the paternal: Mary „May“ Dalgleish, 1914 -28.6.2002, and the maternal: Elizabeth Gibson Melrose, 1917-25.10.1958

Thanks Ricarda

That's interesting and I didn't knew that. It's a beautiful way to find your child's name IMO.

But with my mom called Birthe and my mother-in-law called Jytte I think I would have it a bit difficult to follow that way to find a name for my future child

Mary's father moves to Denmark: http://herognu.com/upload/Her%20og%2...er/48_Blad.jpg

This week's edition of HerogNu reports that Mary's father and Susan last week was visiting Mary, Frederik and the children in their apartment in Frederik VIII's Palace. And he brought good news with him. In about a month and a half, on 15th January, he will begin a 4-5 month long period as a guest professor (in mathematics) in Denmark and will therefore, together with Susan, settle in Denmark for quite some time

How great for Mary to have her father around for a bit. I'm sure John will enjoy being closer to the grandkids too.

Didnt he stay in Denmark years back?

You're absolutely right. John Donaldson is the children's 'Morfar'.
But as far as I know, all four children call him 'Granddad' as he only speaks very little Danish.

I'm curious as to the general layout of the area.

But I don't know where it is, can someone help me with the name of the street or the name of the local neighbourhood?

I won't point out the actual house itself, the readers can figure that out themselves - it's hardly a secret anyway.

Also, do anyone know where M&F stayed during the 2011 visit to Hobart? They rented a fairly big house, where is that located?

A scan of Jane's beach house on the east coast.

Hi Muhler - another scan while I've got the hang of it.

This photo was published, with the location details, in a magazine a few years ago.

If you remember the photos published in a Danish newspaper of CP Mary with a twin strapped to the front, and another strapped to the back, standing on a bush-lined Tasmanian beach - this is her sister Jane's house at Spring Beach where that was probably taken.

You can find it on Google Earth, and see the rugged - certainly in comparison to Copenhagen, and more rugged than some other parts of Tasmania - surrounds that M and F and family have been known to escape to.

(Looks like ants and lizards territory from what I know of Tassie.)

Also, if you are still looking for the location of the house in West Hobart - Fielding St., up the long winding driveway - will locate it for you. (And lots of photos on Google Images to confirm you've found the correct one.)

Hey Everybody,

Thanks for the Danish and British Christmas photos posted.

Denmark looks wet, and the UK looks cold.

I'm down in Tasmania, and though it's summer, it's too far south to have the extreme heat of the mainland.

(It was 44 degrees the other day, when we called into Gundagai looking for some lunch.)

After catching up with all the Christmas posts, I was at a loose end, and wondered if CP Mary's Tasmanian sisters have "made the news" here locally.

Well yes - Jane did in her local, Southern/Hobart, newspaper "The Mercury", back in late September.

Nice photo of Jane, and her "Boost Juice" business partner, as they support the anti-bullying drive that is a regular theme of our TV news and panels shows here in Oz - both school bullying and now work-place bullying.

(And this is one of CP Mary's Danish causes, of course.)

I'm on my tablet so can't link, but you can find it on Google under "Boost Juice joins battle against bullying| The Mercury".

My husband discovered "Boost Juice" a few years ago, and it is now a daily - yes daily - part of his working day. (He tells me they help his immune system when he's under work-stress. I think he just likes them.)

In case you didn't realise, Jane's "Boost Juice" at Eastlands is on the other side of the Derwent River from where she lives in West Hobart, so she would have to travel across the Tasman Bridge between the two - if she goes there much.

(This bridge collapsed in the 1970s when a shipping vessel ran into one of the supporting pylons and cut the city in two. I was living there at the time, and it took a couple of years to be repaired as I remember - but this caused the eastern shore to grow and become independent of the main part of Hobart - and it hasn't looked back. Sydney had to lend Hobart some of it's ferries to help get people about - a big thing for everyone to have to deal with at the time.)

JessRulz's quote above is from 2007, so Jane's business must be going strong now after six years.

There's always a bun fight at the ones in Melbourne and Sydney I've been to - like controlled chaos, with machines whizzing and the counters crowded with customers

Well, Best Wishes All - and Happy New Year,

Sun Lion.

I'm dismayed to read that Mary's maternal grandmother, Elizabeth, only lived to be about 41 years of age!! Mary's mother also died too young so I hope that Mary herself has regular health checks.

John Donaldson and his wife must like the Danish way of life. They know what they are signing up for this time, given that they have lived there before.
Nice to be near their grandchildren.

As previously reported Mary's father is back in Denmark

I saw this article - yesterday he had a nice evening with a group of local musicians in Lemvig, Jutland.

I wonder if John has picked up any danish over the years

That's a good questions, I'm curious about that too. I remember both John and Susan has told they think the Danish language is very difficult. I almost sure they can Danish words and sentences, but how much more I don't know

Yes, Tørfish = Dried Fish are extremely popular in North and West Jutland and have been so since the Later Stoneage.

Which only shows that John Donaldson has a good taste in folk-music.

Here is one of Tørfisk most wellknown songs. It's about a trainride along the west coast, so you get a sense of their style.
You need not understand a word of Danish, just imagine a steam train.

VLTJ, one of my favorite songs with TØRFISK

A little funny fact: The bishop of Aalborg, Henning Toft Bro, is actually (co)founder of TØRFISK. How cool is that?
The man, who is singing (the man in the blue shirt) is Bent Bro, brother to Henning
