You aren’t even writing in English. The alphabet is foreign.
My Ogham is terrible.

The next thing the BBC will be telling us is that Saint George is not English.

And they pulled the plug on MW 648.. 

There was no Britan after the Fishygoths and Oystergoths overran it.  It's public domain knowledge for those who care to read Finnegans Wake.

None British. Including Her Majesty. And bagpipes are from the Middle East.

You aren’t even writing in English. The alphabet is foreign.

Nothing is British.

The BBC have yet to explain, however, what the first B in their name stands for. I have submitted a Freedom of Information request for the answer.

It sounds like someone replaced your telly with a Total Perspective Vortex. Which was a British creation...

The bagpipes were invented by the Irish and the Scott still haven't got the joke.

Of course, you will need a visa to get into Europe but we Irish will welcome you with open  arms.

Only two weeks since Brexit. Have the predictions come true?:

Rioting in the streets, country run by an idiot, high unemployment, strikes, collapsing economy,...

But this was supposed to happen North of the Channel.

No, still here. And they were an important reason why people voted leave. I really wonder if Remainers knew what they were voting for.

And Babs Streisand hasn’t left the US, even though Trump is Pres. (I assume she said she’d leave, maybe she didn’t. But she usually has these sort of tantrums.)

I admire the people who worry about something serious, like a Corbyn govt, and quietly make plans to leave.

Observed that you were posting a few times every day and inferred that you were still alive and kicking!
I prefer not to ask a lot of questions.
Read the tea leaves instead. : )

You probably won’t be aware of this but tea has got political, yet again. A Tory MP was photographed with some Yorkshire Tea, a particularly delicious brand. The left are now boycotting this brand. (I’m drinking it as fast as I can!)

I found it and ordered two boxes.

Since we had our Brexit in 1776, the wounds have healed for the most part.
And this also is a tea leaf sign that I should consider a visit to Scotland this spring.
Sheep, castles, castle ruins, rocks and ledge, green valleys, more rain, more sheep.  More RAIN.
And miles and miles of heather.
It is the perfect country!
Scotland Forever!

Does that irritate you?  : )

Wonderful - so some constraints with the leather straps and gear, but some freedom too!

On my first trip, went out from London to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond.... and up to Oban.

Arrived in an October hurricane with gale force winds and torrential rain - could barely stand up, leaning hard into the wind on the walk to the hotel.

Fantastic! And then you warm up with a glass of single malt made right there in Oban.

Loch Lomond, for those who have not been there, or the Trossachs.

I can see the low road down by the far bank, so you must have taken the high road.

Do you need a drum to bang on? I have it  from 1945.
