I have much enjoyed reading your BLOG since my return from a break with the family in Highlands of Scotland. Great stuff! You are a worthy descendant of the traditional Celtic storyteller, the "seanchaidh", whose eulogies and poetry were such an integral part of the old clan settlements, and fundamental to the mystique, respect and popularity of his Chieftain. I have put your website amongst my "favourites" page, and look forward to logging on with regularity - so keep the posts coming!
