The only ones I can't cope with are brie & camembert.

I also dislike brie and Camembert. Overrated.

I am back from my trip to Scotland - it was gorgeous and fascinating. I loved everything, though their accent is my favorite. I got some wonderful advice from you all on the forum - so thank you for helping to make our trip even more enjoyable.

If you can fit it into your schedule I would recommend you visit the Cardhu Distillery Visitor centre near Aberlour in the Speyside whisky area.  Apart from our experience TripAdvisor gives it a good wrap.  TripAdvisor makes the point that it is the only malt distillery pioneered by a woman.

Good to know! It's not too far off one of the roads we were planning on taking, so it's a real possibility. Thanks!

A is coming tomorrow for the weekend to celebrate Father's Day with us, so the Glenmorangie will be coming off the shelf.

Enjoy! The Glenmorangie distillery is on our list of stops.   ;D

Hi, Anonsi, Have a good one.

Is your trip just to Scotland or is it part of a grand tour?

Just Scotland, though we're going around much of the country.

I said I was going to give the journal a break but Anonsi said she wanted to hear something about Scotland, so here goes

Thank you! That was great. I think my husband is going to be like you and want allllll the whisky.

So if you have any Scottish memories, don’t hold back.

I agree! I'm headed to Scotland soon, so I'm excited about all things Scottish.  ;)

I saw a funny series of National Geographic photographers with animals on or near them while in action. And now this is how I visualize you, Pat.

I've never used or heard bolshy/bolshie.

To your point, anona, I use ornery all the time. Although it can mean bad-tempered or stubborn, it's also used around here to mean mischievous.

Search is also based on where you are in the site. So for example, if you wanted to find info about "hats" in the More or Les thread, you could first go to that thread and then do a search on hats. Doing so returns 7 results, not just one.

I have no idea how to change the name of the link. Exceedingly baffled!

To change the name of the link, you can edit what you put between the two URL tags, like this:
Code: [Select]
[url=]This is a link to Google.[/url]
This is the result. This is a link to Google.
