Peter,

I've noticed that you sometimes start new threads or, as in this case, bump an old thread, to make a point about something going on in some other thread. The problem is I never know what you are referring to when you do this. I don't keep track of them all. Would you mind in the future including a link to the referred-to thread so I (and I imagine a few others) will know what you are talking about?

Thanks,

If it were about specifics Octhathlon I would respond directly on the thread in question...Its more about a tendency to debate for its own sake...as a kind of wee hobby.

So do Celts Anna ( Scots, Irish ) In fact they will feature tonight all over the world where there are ex patriot Scots, in a major ritual to commemorate Robert ( Rabbie ) Burns the Scottish national poet. Burns Night 25th January.
Haggis , which is sheeps liver and kidneys, wrapped in sheeps stomach lining, is served with tatties neeps and whisky . Tatties are potatos and neeps are turnips (stechtrube... spelling ? ). The food is brought in while a particular Burns poem is read out to the sound of bagpipes....

Wow, that sounds great, and I could definitely enjoy food like this. Wishing you a happy day!

The Bavarian/Franconian kitchen has similar dishes, btw. There are actually quite a lot of similarities between the two "highlanders"....unique style of cloths, music, food, and old traditions that are kept up. :smile:
