John Moir (settler)

John Moir was a settler and pastoralist in the areas to the east of Albany, in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. Born at Cape Riche in 1851, he was the eldest son of the pioneer Andrew Moir, from Markinch in Fifeshire and had settled in the region in the 1840s; the Moir family lived in a cottage in the neighbouring allotment to George Cheyne with two of John's brothers working at Cheyne's Cape Riche farm. The Moir family acquired the Cheyne's property including the homestead; the homestead and out-buildings were constructed between 1850 and 1850. A billiards room was built by John Moir with the assistance of Aboriginal people, with a blacksmith shop built at around the same time. Much of the furniture was fashioned from driftwood found on the nearby beaches; the station was used as supply depot for the sandalwood and sealing industries that were flourishing in the area through the 1870s to the 1900s. Moir was married in 1881 and remained at Cape Riche where he had taken a half share of the property on the death of his father.

Moir and his son Neil extended their land-holding along Cheynes Beach in 1920 when they acquired another 1,796 acres of land. Cape Riche Station was still held by the family with Moir's other sons having set up sheep stations further to the east near the Salt River; the Moirs used the sheep for meat production to supply the goldfields around Norseman. Moir died on 31 May 1938 at Albany Hospital at age 87, was buried at Cape Riche

Laskovyi Mai

Laskovyi Mai was a Soviet boy band from Moscow founded by Russian songwriter and musician Sergei Kuznetsov. The group's best-known member was Yuri Shatunov; the group disbanded in 1992. Laskovyi Mai once had been called "the legends of the 80–90s"; the band has made a comeback since 2009 as a new Russian band under some changed membership of Andrei Razin, Sergey Serkov, Andrei Kucherov and Sergei Lenyuk. Laskovyi Mai was formed in the middle of the 1980s, when Sergei Kuznetsov decided to create a group of musicians with orphan children from an orphanage in Orenburg; the group's first album became legendary in the history of the Soviet pop. The style of group is a mix of Western disco pop music made on the synthesizer with plain lyrics and sung with a jazzy voice; the group Vesyolye Rebyata was a big rival, with their hit "Rozovye Rozy" being nearly as popular as Laskovyi May's but "Belye Rozy".
