“Eternal is the fact that the human creature born in Ireland and brought up in its air is Irish. I have lived for twenty years in Ireland and for seventy-two in England; but the twenty came first, and in Britain I am still a foreigner and shall die one.” George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

I can’t watch any more… 6-0… Update: It’s all over. The gulf between the teams was sorely evident, but here’s hoping the future of Scottish football (McFadden, Fletcher, Wilkie…) will be a bit brighter. Update 2: Bad luck to Wales as well – at least we can all now cheer on England….

As Hans rightly commented, tattie scones are a uniquely Scottish delicacy. I remember missing them when we moved to England, and I’m still not sure which is best: fried and smothered in ketchup*, or cold with honey. Tattie Scones (Potato scones). * Why DOES fried food taste better with ketchup?

We fly on Saturday morning at 7:30 pm. I get the feeling that the next couple of days may drag a little so I’m doing my best to fill my time (and the iPod still!). I’m looking forward to it but there are a few reasons that make me ever so slightly unsure about how…

My Dad (who gets his second mention of the day) is a P.E. teacher. He wasn’t sadistic at home, in fact he was a pretty darn good Dad to have if you ask me, and as he’s my Dad it’s only my opinion that counts (ohhh and my sister’s). I didn’t go to the school…

Glasgow PubsAlex makes a good point about the declining choice of pubs in Glasgow. Well said that man.. Errr… but where did I go on Thursday night… 2 Wetherspoon’s, and Buddha. I’m blaming my mate, he lives in England now and wanted ‘real ale’ (also known as slightly flat, weak, warm beer… bleuch)

Scotland rulesOK, I’m not big on the whole England vs Scotland thing (unless it involves rugby and a historic Grand Slam or two). But this article did make me giggle.The tragic ineptitude of the English male. I shouldn’t point out that it should really be titled (I think) The tragic ineptitude of the London male……

To ITV Sport: A letter of complaint Whilst I am glad to see England go through I was very disappointed in your coverage of today’s games (12th June). I think it is ridiculous to only show 3-4 minutes of the other 3 games in total, and spend the rest of the program on the England…

Vanlla Sky Soundtrack – Probably the best part of the film. Which we paid money to see on Friday. Actually that’s not very fair, the story was good, slightly quirky, but way out of Mr.Cruise’s league. With the right actor in the main role this film would have grabbed you and pulled you in, as…
