Auld Acquaintance

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

All things must pass, and pass they will.
As we see out 2016 and bring in the new of 2017 this blog comes to its own conclusion after 5 years and 2 months and 450 blog posts.
As the old year must pass to let the new year come in, so too with Auld Acquaintance.
But as Burns poem, auld acquaintance shall not be forgot, and it will remain here for any who wish to refer to it.

It has been quite some journey these past 5 years, and I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to read or contribute with their comments. You have all been appreciated me. Apart from one Unionist who took massive exception to something I had written, and he went onto a…

Away from the manger (A True Story)

23 Dec

A peaceful time to one and all,I wish we all can have hope for the future and independence before too long and a year is too long.Not really too long I’ve wished for independence since I was a child,it was always inside of me.We can tackle homlesness and many ills of our society but we have to do it nobody else can or even wants to or cares,but we care for each other.

Auld Acquaintance

Wishing all of my good friends and readers of this blog one last Happy Christmas before Auld Acquaintance ceases to be in the New Year.

This is a true story from a number of years back, but the scene will still be repeated somewhere else tonight.

Many blessings and good wishes to you all

Away from the Manger ( A true story)

I looked upon a homeless man
trying to get some sleep
Lying on broken cardboard
beside a rubbish skip
While all around in the big hotel
all had comfort for the night
His head it lay…

Stooshie Supreme

7 Dec

This a good article with good links.There does however remain the the point of the unionist press and their control of news e.g. the BBC.Will any of them dare to print or relate the truth of Scotland being subservient to England,and does the Scots union supporters accept that we are a colony of England?

Auld Acquaintance

Theresa May and her Tory government may have made the biggest political miscalculation of their political lives in appealing against the verdict of the English High Court to the Supreme Court over the issue of whether the Westminster parliament can debate how to proceed with article 50 to remove Britain from the EU.

Had she conceded the initial judgement instead of being dictatorial in refusing to accept it, she would have been able to simply put a very brief and simple bill in front of parliament which would have given her the go ahead. The Westminster Parliament and its MPs in the Labour and Tory ranks would have been satisfied broadly that they had at least been consulted and it would have gone ahead. No way would they risk going against the majority in England and Wales to proceed with Brexit.

Instead she has proceeded to dig her heels in…
