The first post

Greetings to any readers of the humble blog.

The first post is dated tomorrow 25 January, to coincide with the Burns Night celebrations.

Now I need to search high & low for a bloody Haggis, and ‘neaps (turnips), which are as rare as hens teeth, here in Lupaland; the Whisky and potatoes I already have!

Hi Stu,

Welcome to the blogosphere, or whatever they call it.

I am partial to ship or rather sheep innards myself and I suppose plenty of the amber liquid makes it easier to go down?

Thanks a million Captain Yusof,
your warm welcome is greatly appreciated.
The elusive Haggis it still not caught,
may have to substitute Burns night feast with hydraulic supper upper?

Slainte Mhath!

Greetings and many thanks Bernard,
for your triple welcome and the double single, the latter will make the tonsils tingle!

Thanks for the hearty 'bon voyage',
& my wife returns the salute to you

Fare thee well dear Zorro.

Slainte. Here's tae ye!

I miss Burns Night...having lived in the North-East for seven nights, Burns Night dinner was compulsory. Wasn't too keen on haggus but the amber nectar helped!!! Of course, it wouldn't be complete without a Robbie verse or two.

Hi there

It was a pleasure to have met you in person over pulled-tea n Lingam's "come-ing" at Seremban awhile back.

More seatales to warm the heart?

Best regards

Thanks for calling in Bahma, glad to have your company.
Haggis may be an acquired taste, I really enjoy it, but I also like tasty Malaysian delicacies such as durian, chincalok, and budu; as well as the ripest most aromatic cheeses available!!!!!

Hi Moses, it was a great pleasure to meet you too.
Thanks for stopping by at the blog.
