Tomorrow Is Tartan Day

I'm Scottish (as much as I joke about being Irish, I'm more Scot).  My family has come from the Robertsons, the Johnstons, the Sinclairs, and the Shaws.

Thanks for the link!

I'll keep adding people to both rolls till I go to sleep tonight, and I may get time to add any late comers before work tomorrow. The more, the merrier!

Argggh. Damn Scots. ;)

Posted by: Ogre | Apr 5, 2005 2:15:59 PM

Those Scots are natural enemies. Like Englishmen and Scots! Or Welshmen and Scots! Or Japanese and Scots! Or Scots and other Scots! Damn Scots! They ruined Scotland!

Posted by: Ogre | Apr 5, 2005 2:35:18 PM

Egads! A kinsman!!

Clan Robertson, thanks be to me gr-gr-granda who left bonny Scotland on the LONDON, for Nova Scotia.

The arisaid comes out of the closet tomorrow!

Shoulda known, Sus, shoulda known...Clan Donnachaidh (Robertson)...

Have a great day celebrating tomorrow Matt, I've sent this link to my very good friend Jane, her maiden name is Ness. I told her I'd help her with a drink, but I sure pass on the Haggis !
Take care,

Yep - couldn't spell the Donawhatsis at the time of posting . . . so, I wonder why it is that an Irish whiskey graces my sideboard instead of a more appropriate uisge beatha. . . .

Can't handle that peaty stuff you adore! Whew! Although I did kind of like a Lagavulin someone shared, the other day.

Wow, two other Robertsons! I'm also part Stewart.

Jen - Goodness - three of us! . . . . what's the Scottish equivalent of "The South Shall Rise Again"? Something like: "Sassenachs, go back to Normandie"?

I've spent way to much time at the VVA, tonight. . . .

Posted by: Sus | Apr 6, 2005 12:08:43 AM

A Robertson? That makes you a member of the Clann Donnachaidh, which is to say, a clansman of my own. Outstanding.

Posted by: Grim | Apr 6, 2005 12:12:38 AM

Ack! I see on review of the comments, it's four of us! My mother was a Duncan.

Grim - Welcome to the Rising!

your newer thread on the Arbroath declaration is closed, so I'll post this other reading recommendation here:


"How the Scots Invented the Modern World: The True Story of How Western Europe's Poorest Nation Created Our World & Everything in It"

(and another, for the Irish side of my house)


"How the Irish Saved Civilization".. It wasn't just the Arabs saving all those classic texts from the dark ages...

Thanks, Otis, I reopened it up for comments.
