The background

I haven't watched TV at home for nearly 20 years. I haven't owned a TV for nearly 15 years. There was a time when we used to watch videos using a television but we have long since moved to using DVDs and large computer monitors.

Sunshine on Scotland

Well, I never intended to stay up and follow the election results on the night of Thursday May 7th and into the early hours of the following day but it just became so addictive. For months we had opinion polls that put the SNP well ahead of Labour but somehow the release of the exit poll just after 10pm was the clincher; "I'm staying up". It really seemed improbable that almost every unionist MP in Scotland could be unseated but I couldn't go to sleep not knowing.

So, there must be an election coming up soon.

Independence March and Rally 2013

Has it really been a whole year since the last March and Rally? It is hard to believe as the time has passed so quickly. This year the route was from The High Street, down North Bridge, across Princes Street, along Waterloo Place/Regent Road and then up Calton Hill for the Rally.

Homemade Yes Logo board

This weekend, the nearest Saturday/Sunday to the anniversary of Robert Burns' birth, will be a busy one for YesScotland events all across Scotland. So, of course, we are having an event locally which means we needed to get out all the flyers, leaflets, banners and Yes boards. This was fine except the person who has most of the materials has gone away on a three week international holiday!
