Happy Burns Night


Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace worthy
As lang's my arm.

Happy Burns Day!

Love those lines.
Cheers, Shelagh
I didn't realize you had a blogspot too:)

Is this Robbie Burns Day? There's a big celebration in Vancouver, Canada, too, I believe...started by those who love Burns and wanted something like that outside of Scotland. :)

Hi Shelagh! Yes, I've been here for a little while. This started out as soapmaking blog, but as my interests changed, so did the theme!

Teresa, it is. Today is the 250th anniversary of his birth. I think it's just an excuse to drink lots of whisky. ;)

Hmmm, do we have things like this in the states? I suppose St. Patty's day is close. Yet another reason to drink more whiskey ;0)

Heidi, it makes me wish I liked whisky!
