Tandleman, proud though exiled Scot that he is, has reminded me on his blog that tonight is Burns Night. Robert Burns enjoyed a drink and wrote lots of fine songs, thus fitting both facets of this blog. To celebrate, here is a beautiful rendition by Eddie Reader of the Burns song "Ae Fond Kiss, And Then We Sever", demonstrating the genius of Burns by successfully giving it a modern treatment; it works for me anyway. You'll have to provide your own drink.
As a contrast, click here if you remember the White Heather Club!
Too early for cautious optimism?
