Gaein fer a Daunner
Hello aw, howp ye hae been keipin weil ower the hinmaist week.
I hae been kepin masel busy wi wark, mainly, but also readin mair nor is guid fer me an a wee bit screivin whan I haed time. I picked up a braw buik anent St. Kilda - facinatin place, nae dout. In fack, there's a lecture anent the life an daith o St. Kilda at Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh this Wadnesday comin at hauf past seiven by Prof. Donald Meek. It's free, an aw fowk is walcome.
A wee anecdote cam tae mind the ithir day. A while syne I wis in a chynge-hous an there wis a callan tryin tae chat up an Inglis lassie (an wi muckle success). He speired at her "Dae ye want tae gae fer a daunner?" She answert "Oh, I'm not hungry."! I fun it gey haird no tae lauch at thon.
I'm daein sum wark the nou on startin up a Bebo group fer the SLC. Gin onie o ye hae a Bebo acount, than luik me up (ma name on there is "Tulloch Gorum") an jyne the curn!
Sang o the week - "Journey to the End" by Windir. Braw sang, bonnie melodies. I'm no a fan o electronic/ trance muisic fer ordinar, but the close o this sang is jist braw. The lilter dee'd about twa an a hauf year syne, an the end o this hinmaist album is a fittin tribute tae him.
