Two bedraggled Glaswegian coos! Saw these rather decrepit looking beasties when Adrian and I were marshalling the 2010 Forget Me Not Walk for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research in Pollok Park in Glasgow a few months back. By the time we’d been hauled out of bed on a Sunday morning, manhandled into vast, tent-like luminous marshall vests by my mum and rained on for the duration, we looked as bedraggled as these critters.

Learning How To Be Scottish in Scottish-America
Ex-pat Scot Aefa Mulholland travels around the US, persuading bemused Americans to teach her how to things considered stereotypically Scottish, but that she never learned to do growing up in Scotland. She tries Scottish country dancing in Honolulu, makes a stab at playing bagpipes in New Orleans and attempts golf for the first time on a rattlesnake-infested desert course in Arizona—and learns what it means to be Scottish, what it means to be Scottish-American and what it means to be at home such a long way from home.
