i'm early enough to get a good seat! i hope you have the Nat-Geo collection from the 70s, it's a keeper. good morning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:07pm Sem:

Hello, Ms. M., annie.

Once you've had a good long look at Scotland, you might consider New Scotland, Nova Scotia, specifically, Cape Breton. The physical similarities of the terrain are amazing. But not magic, when Europe split off of North America (Pangea), part of Nova Scotia ended up in what is now Scotland. For true.
  Thu. 9/6/18 12:08pm JuStUrMoM:

You’re making me think of starting to pack...
  Thu. 9/6/18 12:08pm elwyn:

hello everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:11pm Meghan:

Hey there everyone! I've actually started packing already. The temperature is 20 degrees cooler than here right now, so it's not all the same clothes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:12pm Dave B:

Scotland - where the men are men and the sheep run scared!
  Thu. 9/6/18 12:12pm elwyn:

i am going to riot if we don't get The Proclaimers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:13pm Meghan:

Elwyn, there is 2 weeks of this.... so it *might* be next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:14pm Parq:

Never been to Scotland, but I agree that the Cape Breton section of Nova Scotia (the east end of the island) is well worth seeing. We stayed in a cabin on a hillside with a commanding view of the valley on the north side of the peninsula. Magic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:14pm Dave B:

I sent you that Martyn Bennett this AM. Don't forget APB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:14pm Dave B:

I just booked November vacation. 1 week in Tokyo and then a week in Hong Kong
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:18pm Meghan:

Nice Dave! I got the Martyn Bennett... put down APB in the post on Facebook so I don't forget!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:19pm Dave B:

I'll send you the APB I have...
  Thu. 9/6/18 12:19pm elwyn:

so I only get to riot in at least one week.

Spiderman comes out on PS4 tomorrow. I want to see how well Evil Brady's apartment block is represented in it.

THIS BASS LINE RULEZ
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:23pm Dave B:

Elwyn - did they film in my neighborhood? I can't recall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:28pm Parq:

In the 60s? Take along you tie-dye and be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
  Thu. 9/6/18 12:28pm elwyn:

not sure how the game developers created Manhatten. your place is close to a landmark or two so it should be covered.
  Thu. 9/6/18 12:46pm elwyn:

will you eat haggis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:48pm KP:

They like a wee drink in Scotland
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:48pm doctorjazz:

Hi underwater dwellers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:49pm Meghan:

I will definitely partake in having a wee dram here and there.... And if haggis is offered, I'll totally try it. Why not?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:55pm Dave B:

Who's drinking wee? That's DISGUSTING!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:55pm Meghan:

hahahahahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:56pm Sem:

It figures the allegedly tight-fisted Scots could come up w/ a measure like a wee dram. One eighth of an (imperial) ounce.

Scottish humour runs to things like inventing haggis and calling it food, and golf, a game played with implements ill-suited to the purpose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:57pm Dave B:

And the caber toss....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:57pm Meghan:

If there was mini golf at St. Andrews.... I'll be all over that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:58pm Parq:

You should watch the Bugs Bunny 'toon "My Bunny Lies Over the Ocean". It will prepare you for Scotland and Scots. Well no, it won't actually, but you'll have fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:59pm Meghan:

hahaha, true, it will be fun nonetheless!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 12:59pm Sem:

@Dave B.: DIY hernia making.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

20 degrees cooler sounds nice. It's so hot up here today that they sent the school kids home early.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:08pm Meghan:

Kids here had a half day as well. My schools growing up never had AC.

i need to go to bed. too sleepy to riot. goodnight everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:16pm The Oscar:

My cousin once pulled me aside (at a funeral!) to tell me about the theory that the Loch Ness Monster was actually a demon conjured by Aleister Crowley, but he was called upon to the British Psi-Ops program before he could send it back. I WANT TO BELIEVE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:16pm northguineahills:

Outlander shows a good portrait of that rebellion. (tv series).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:17pm northguineahills:

Glencoe, where my ancestors came from.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:18pm Sem:

G'night, elwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:20pm Meghan:

NGH- the tour I'm on is based on that book series Night Elwyn- no riots tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:20pm Parq:

Oscar, I'll have what your cousin was having.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:21pm Meghan:

I'm going to find that monster!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:23pm Dave B:

The Fratellis are on the shortlist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:24pm Meghan:

They are! Song preference?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:25pm northguineahills:

One of my ancestors, the Duke of Argyle, supported the rebellion, and was rendered landless afterwards. His son then went to now Canada, and his grandson the went to Michigan during the Civil War.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:26pm Dave B:

Anything!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:27pm northguineahills:

Other ancestors were mostly scattered and became merchants in England and Edinburgh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:29pm Parq:

Has anyone been to both the Scottish highlands and western Ireland? I'm curious as to how they compare.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:30pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Meghan and snorkelers
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:31pm northguineahills:

The Vaselines make me smile....!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:31pm The Oscar:

Vaselines! I was so surprised when I heard the original version of this song to realize that there were actual verses and lyrics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:40pm northguineahills:

Never heard this Bis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:43pm northguineahills:

not to be confused w/ the Christian punk band, Hoi Polloi...(don't ask why I know about them).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:45pm Parq:

Bis came to my attention when my kid was young, since they did the cheerfully noisy closing theme for the Powerpuff Girls show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:47pm Dave B:

Would you lie to us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:48pm Stanley:

Scots Wha Hae. Back from holidays in Portugal and checking in.
For the record, Sem, whisky is served by the quarter gill (35ml), up here, otherwise known as a 'nip'. A 'dram' just means a small glass of that wondrous fluid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:50pm Meghan:

I have a friend who also just got back from Portugal! It's the happening spot
Avatar Thu. 9/6/18 1:52pm Sigurður:

Ochh Ay me Bonnie Meg, did you have a glance at documentaries?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:53pm Meghan:

I did! The first one didn't work.... but I watched the second one!
Avatar Thu. 9/6/18 1:54pm Sigurður:

Good on ya! Sooo any good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:54pm Meghan:

Oh I am beyond prepared!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:55pm Dave B:

Didn't Madonna buy some property in Lisbon last year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:57pm Stanley:

Lisbon, for sure, is kicking. Being built on hills, all over are 'miradouros', viewpoints over the city and cool places to hang out in the evenings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:57pm KP:

Scottish bands I’ve seen: Proclaimers, Big Country, Bay City Rollers, the Alarm
Avatar Thu. 9/6/18 1:57pm Sigurður:

Lol.... Just remember to order a dram of chicken! It is always some sort of delight in memory having ordered a chicken and receive a brownish liquid...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 1:59pm Meghan:

Yeah, they said that Lisbon and Porto were definitely hilly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 2:00pm Stanley:

....Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Texas, this lot (Belle & Sebastian), Mogwai, Nazareth......
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/6/18 2:00pm Sem:

Obrigado, Stanley!

Hello, on-shore Sigurður!
