I went to a Rugby World Cup match in Scotland a number of years ago;same sort of experience as described here. I was amongst the Scottish supporters,and even though it was raining hard and wind blowing near gale force,we had a great time! I heard plenty of things yelled at the referees (especially after we had a few beers),and did not recognize many of them as English as I was used to hearing it,but who cares? The Scots were passionate about their team,and even though they lost to the All Blacks on this occasion,the support never wavered (even if the singing did waver a bit.) One of the best times I've had in my life. Enjoy your time in Scotland,Sophie! You're in a great place.
I find myself in rare agreement with Mark. The city has no business declaring the downtown to be blighted,when that is clearly not the case. I agree that this is an ethical issue,and it is likely that a more worthy community could use that grant money. The city can find a way to finance these improvements without taking such a step.(Mark is of course,exactly right.)
No drinking for Sophie. (Maybe in March.)
Thanks for keeping us informed,Julian!
So much to do in Scotland... It may take you awhile,but a trip to the Outer Hebrides should be exciting and memorable. (We got close,but the weather turned against us.) The Borders area near England and the low hills (the fells) south of Glasgow and Edinburgh along the River Clyde are some of my favorite places in the world. If you're a beer drinker,the ales in Scotland (the true ales) are some of the best anywhere. The Scots are lively,friendly and engaging people;I think you will enjoy your time there. (I always do!)
You make some good points here. Keep in mind that we have an embassy in China,a country with similar human rights abuses,and a tendency to make people disappear in the night,never to be heard from again. Our embassy presence there might be seen as sanctioning these actions,but it's doubtful that we will recall our ambassador over the issue.
Stupid mistake by the EPA,but where did all that waste come from in the first place? Perhaps the previous mine owner should have put more attention in cleaning up the mess they created?
I hope you and your goats are well. Beh.
The last paragraph of your previous post suggests to me that you thought I favored "Dupont Chenical Company to do your dirty work". You might understand how it sounds like you are accusing me of being a spray guy. I would indeed be more or a goat guy (beh),but I'm all for RCR and any other interested parties working to maintain trails for everyone's enjoyment and safety.
If you feel this way,why didn't you just say that in the first place? I guess it's more fun to stir up the pot a bit,eh?
