We’ve been gone on holidays for a few days and are away for a bit next week too so my postings will be a bit sporadic. 🙂
I haven’t had a lot of time to do much research on Scotland but there is a lot going on, especially in Edinburgh these days. The Edinburgh International Book Festival begins this weekend and I found a fun little game to find out what Scottish book character you are most like. It appears I am like Miss Jean Brodie ~
The character you are most like is Miss Jean Brodie from The Prime of Miss Jean
Brodie. You are someone who likes to stand out from the crowd. Unconventional, you like to do things your own way and spend little time worrying about what others think of you. Cultured and well-read, you have a love of knowledge and like nothing better than to sit down with a good book. Strongly opinionated, you always speak your mind but be careful of that stubborn streak. Sometimes it’s good to listen to what others have to say too!
Another event this coming weekend is the World Pipe Band Championships:
8,000 Pipers & Drummers
1 World Champion
“The World Pipe Band Championships will return to its heartland, in Glasgow Green on 13th August 2011. Expect exciting competition across all Grades, in the fiercely contested Drum Major contest as well as Highland Dancing and Glasgow World Highland Games Championships! Enjoy a fantastic daylong event that will delight both piping fans and those looking for a great day out.”
