    we ended up celebrating it at our club last night, and we introdusted ten year olds to haggis and scotish dancing. it went down a treat….and they learned about scotish traditions at the same time.

    You can’t beat haggis in roasted red pepper with a cheese topping.

    Rabbie would be proud.

    i draw the line at eating animal’s bodies – i just can’t handle the thought of eatiing their insides too.
