    There is a claim originating from the English side of the border that Scottish drinkers are known to keep their palms on top of glasses in an attempt to keep the alcohol from evaporating.:twisted:

    Leave it to the Glaswegians to rename the square in front of the South African consulate after the then political prisoner Mandela!

    Good to know you are having a wonderful time there.

    lol. my friend was calling me when it was evening my time. He said it was his lunch break. I suppose it gets dark quite early at this time of the year.

    Isn't it very cold there ?

    Will do if I drift to that area. That's close to where they filmed the scenes in World War Z.
