Toast of The Day

"Here's to it:
The fighting sheen of it,
The yellow, the green of it,
The white, the blue of it,
The swing, the hue of it,
The dark, the red of it.
The fair have sighed for it,
The brave have died for it,
Foeman sought for it,
Heroes fought for it,
Honour the fame of it........ THE TARTAN"

"May you live all the days of your life"

Joke of The Day

There was a young Scottish lad named Angus who decided to try life in Australia. He found an apartment in a small block and settled in.
After a week or two, his mother called from Aberdeen to see how her son was doing in his new life.
"I'm fine," Angus said, "But there are some really strange people living here in Australia. One woman cries all day long, another lies on her floor moaning, and there is a guy next door to me who bangs his head on the wall all the time."
"Well, ma wee laddie," says his mother, "I suggest you don't associate with people like that."
"Oh," says Angus, "I don't, Ma'am, I don't. No, I just stay inside ma apartment all day and night, playing ma bagpipes."
 - In Celebration of St. Andrews Day (Scotland)
