Another week by and it’s been rather a mixed one. Firstly I was saddened to learn of the death of a fantastic and criminally overlooked blogger Alan Edwards.
We are lucky he’s left us such an archive of gems and his ongoing contribution to the world of blogging will be missed by those of us lucky enough to be familiar with his work.
Moving on to slightly more cheerful matters. I had a rather unconventional Burns Night this year in that I couldn’t lay hands on a vegetarian haggis. Instead I feasted on butter bean enchiladas and very nice they were too. Still I did miss my haggis. The minute they reappear I’m getting my traditional meal of Haggis and Tatties. I omit the neeps because as every child knows they are a thread filled, stringy abomination. I didn’t go through the torment of growing up to start munching on stuff I had the good sense to turn my nose up at as a child.
The above clip is Eddi reader singing Ae Fond Kiss by Robert Burns which fact fans may be delighted to learn is the one song guaranteed to make Clairwil cry -even the strongest armour has it’s chinks. It was also written about a woman who lived about two minutes walk from where
I am now and was by all accounts something of a stunner and one of the few women to spurn the advances of the very attractive Burns.
Right. Enough me. Let’s have the usual nonsense below. Anything controversial or serious will incur my wrath and with the mood I’ve been in this week you really don’t want that.
