My distant scotish roots showing again!

Yes Toonjie, Scotish only when it suits me and a couple of generations removed from the "aud country" at that. Except for one brother in Fife.[/

I like that expression: stubborn as the day is long. That means that during the winter she's less stubborn than in the summer?

Have you read the email I send you re. quoting?
