This is how you're going to reach out and get a hold of me unless you already know me, in which case... why are you here, just pick up the phone.

Just a little corner of the interwebz where I occasionally jot down a thought or two. Why do I do it? Partly to communicate in some way with you, the reader, and partly because it's some sad way of leaving a legacy of some kind I guess.


dear scotland

I have to admit that I'm a little late to the game on this topic - I haven't been watching as much news as I normally do having replaced it with "news" apps such as Flipboard. In fact, it only came to my attention after I read an article on the Globe and Mail entitled "Dear Scotland: An open letter from your Canadian cousins".

Admittedly, I don't know the exact situation within Scotland but, as the Queen stated, she hopes "people will think very carefully about the future" when it comes to declaring their independence from the United Kingdom. If it's anything like the independence debate in Canada then I would tend to agree with the Globe and Mail's article and hope that the people of Scotland step back and let the passions simmer before jumping into it - the full ramifications can be devastating.
