Eclectic Tastes


Today is "Robert Burns Day' (click).

This goes out for all you people of Scottish ancestry
and to those who like his work.

My grandmother, Maryann MacDonald, and grandfather, Arthur MacIsaac,
 were very proud Scots and this song/poem goes out to them.

  2. This is absolutely beautiful and brings back my sister to me. She met my brother-in-law in Edinburgh and spent her first two months of marriage there. She grew to love Robert Burns and introduced me to him. I've been missing her lately. So, here I sit sending you a tear-filled "thank-you" for a sweet memory (as opposed to a' that's been in my head).
