fair enough if not far enough
being a Scot myself might i point out
that the border defines the Scots from the English
but being further north in no way makes you 'more' Scottish
and may i further point out that to 99% of Scots
erse dont mean Irish  ;D ;D ;D

'Erse" can mean 'dowp' or what the English call Scots Gaelic.

And dowp or dowpie can mean a fag end, as well as erse (arse for the English readers).

Hi RM are you interested in sport of any kind  ??? ???  I am certainly in agreement with you on race and religion I am interested in politics but it is a subject which can easily turn sour so care as to be taken. Golf is now my sport which took over from my other interest which was scuba diving. Gave that up because of the expense which came to much for me.
