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!

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.

You’re making me think of starting to pack...

hello everyone!

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!

Elwyn, there is 2 weeks of this.... so it *might* be next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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.

I sent you that Martyn Bennett this AM. Don't forget APB!

Nice Dave! I got the Martyn Bennett... put down APB in the post on Facebook so I don't forget!

I'll send you the APB I have...

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.

In the 60s? Take along you tie-dye and be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.

elwyn:

not sure how the game developers created Manhatten. your place is close to a landmark or two so it should be covered.

will you eat haggis?

They like a wee drink in Scotland

Hi underwater dwellers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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 12:55pm
Dave B:

Who's drinking wee? That's DISGUSTING!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm
Meghan:

hahahahahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 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.

Dave B:

And the caber toss....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm

If there was mini golf at St. Andrews.... I'll be all over that!

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.

hahaha, true, it will be fun nonetheless!

20 degrees cooler sounds nice. It's so hot up here today that they sent the school kids home early.

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.

Bis came to my attention when my kid was young, since they did the cheerfully noisy closing theme for the Powerpuff Girls show.

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.

I have a friend who also just got back from Portugal! It's the happening spot

Didn't Madonna buy some property in Lisbon last year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm

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.

Scottish bands I’ve seen: Proclaimers, Big Country, Bay City Rollers, the Alarm

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...

Yeah, they said that Lisbon and Porto were definitely hilly!
