I’m afraid my blog and the Forum were kaput for a few days, due to no fault of mine or the Webmistress’. Our server hosting company took a few days to respond to us but have since been very helpful and apologetic. But now we’re back. C’est la vie!
On a positive note, over the weekend I had fun at a local Burns Supper where I was invited to give a speech called the Toast Tae The Lassies, while Kathleen gave The Lassies’ Reply. The assembled company drank malt whisky and ate copious amounts of haggis, and I told dirty jokes and finished up playing and singing a few verses of a ~230 year old Robbie Burns song, ‘Green Grow The Rashes’, just my un-amplified voice and an acoustic guitar. It was terrifying, but very good for me. I didn’t spot any cameraphones and I’m praying it doesn’t show up on YouTube or you will all blackmail me for years to come.
