I found this news article today, and thought it would gladden Jamie's heart.

According to the article: "A gathering of clansmen and clanswomen has been welcomed to the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle for the first time in centuries. The last time the clans marched to the castle was when they came to Edinburgh to lay siege to it during the Jacobite uprisings in 1745."

Hahaha, DLT, we missed this by ONE day!  We were there the next day, not knowing at all what had just occurred.  Go figure...

Oh that's so too bad - back on the theme you mentioned earlier of how you kept arriving late for things!
Da mi basia mille, deinde centum, dein mille altera, dein secunda centum, deinde usque altera mille, deinde centum.

Donne-moi mille baisers, et puis cent, et puis mille autres, puis une seconde fois cent, puis encore mille autres, puis cent.
