Happy St Andrew's Day


I look forward to my national day soon becoming a public holiday in Scotland. And of course, each nation of the United Kingdom, being able to celebrate their own national saints days in a similar manner.

How cool is that?!? My dad's great grandfather came over on a boat from Scotland when he was 7. I live in the US.

A great idea. And what about St Edmund's Day too - Nov 27th - who campaigners want to reinstate as the patron saint of England.

Why the long silence, btw?

Don't know much about St Edmund....

Normal service should be restored soon, hopefully. Having a frantically busy time at work at the moment, but still lots I feel the need to rant about.
