    My nick doesn't have an 'e' at the end of it. I'm not part of the Brownie movement

    You got me on driving on the wrong side of the road but that is natural to us in our small island.

    However, the rest of the world seems to agree with our date format

    I hope you love it!

    I don't know if you are into sports or not but the Commonwealth Games are taking place in Scotland next year, unfortunately it may be after your holiday.

    Hey, RG...I heard they were changing the driving just for your visit. Keep in mind, they're changing the lorries on Saturday and the cars on Sunday.
