Sparky,

Sounds great. I will also lift a glass to you and yours on the night.

I did a double take on the sweet - i think it's Cranachan; main ingredients beside whipped cream are toasted oatmeal soaked overnight in whisky plus honey and raspberries. I have done it the other way around and "been soaked in whisky overnight, and given the raspberry by my Honey in the morning".

Some things just don't change.

cheers,

Jimbo

I think that was what a Scottish guy did at last years supper but i can understand the Spanish more than i can the Scots when they are in full flow, so not certain about it .

Remember to address the haggis as well

Fair fa your honest sonsie face
Great Chieftan o the pudding race
Aboonthem a ye tak your place
Painch tripe or thairm
Weel are ye worthy o a grace
As langs my arm

Translation
Fair and full is your honest jolly face
Great Chieftan of the sausage race
Above them all you take your place
Stomach tripe and intestines
Well are you worthy of a grace
As long as my arm

Thankfully they have got everything in hand so i won't be needed .

Have just spoken with Michaela and she asked me to add that the bar is open from 6.30pm but everyone needs to be seated for 8pm .

Also there are a few seats still available and if anyone wants to book the number is 971 86 62 33 .

Sparky, this all seems a bit odd, last night spoke to a friend who is learning his lines for the supper on SATURDAY night. At lunchtime today another 6 people I know we're talking about it and they also are going Saturday night. Does it last that long? ��

We had a lovely evening, good food, service and great company, thank you everyone . I drank the whisky, well it would have been rude not to but i really don't like the stuff and i am sure that is why i had a headache this morning .

A novel twist in the proceedings was to have a Spaniard recite the Selkirk Grace , i have to say he did a better job than i could have

Glad you had a good night Lynn.Great that the Bard has a recognition in Pollensa.If any members plan to visit Scotland take time out to visit Rabbies birth place Alloway farm where he lived till the age of six.Also his house in Dumfries where he died is brilliant where a lot of his original hand written work is on display as well as the desk and chair he used.
He also inscribed his initials on one of the glass window panes which is still intact on the window.

Yes indeed, I was about to ask Sparky to nip along and clean the See Mallorca webcam after yesterday, but it seems she's been up there like a whippet. That scotch has a lot to answer for

Been, to both Sleepyboaby. I like some of his poetry and songs - not all, But his best for me is a " A Man's a Man for awe that".

A Man's a Man for awe that got him in a bit of bother with the establishment with his sympathetuc leanings towards the French Revolution.
"The merry muses of Caledonia"shows his raunchy side of writing which he kept in a private book.So much so that after his death close friends found the book and destroyed it to keep his good name intact.
