My son is on his summer sea term and they just sailed from Cork up and around Scotland enroute to Denmark.


Btw,
What's a "steak pie" ?

Thanks, Frank.

As you can see, some glorious weather the past week to be sailing around there, I hope your son is enjoying it, although one day I was there they stopped a lot of the island ferries due to strong winds.

A "steak pie" is basically chunks of stewing steak in a thick gravy topped with puff pastry, think of a chicken pot pie but with beef. The ones served in pubs and chip shops are smaller, more like a folded over pocket of pastry with the filling inside. Just a local variant of something you find the world over.

Blaggis and chilli haggis were new to me, I refer you to what fyrfytr said...

Traditional half-time fare at a football ("soccer") game is "a pie and bovril". Here's the one I had last time I went to game in Scotland, it's a Killie Pie:


Say AYE to a Killie Pie!

I suspect the vote will be 'no', the 'yes' vote has struggled to get over 40% in polls so far, but there are a lot of undecided voters. All it will take to swing it one way or the other is an event or gaffe in the run up.

As to why there is a vote and what would happen in either scenario, that's a discussion best had with a few beers.

This is something interesting that may have some impacts on off road riding in the Pines:

Yea. I'm sure it's a huge deal for both sides Jim and a hot subject amongst the Scots. Good luck.

It ended up being $26 for Sunday alone, but with VIP parking. Outside the Random couple Harley guys and two and three sport bike squids, myself and the 8-9 Triumph club guys I rode down with were practically the only ones there, outside racers and swap meet vendors. It was dead.....but nice...not to have to fight crowds for food or the good stands seats. Interesting to see bikes from 40's, 50's, 60's, etc, racing around the same track that I have done track days on.

I have a video and some pictures I'll post up later.

I was there Sunday too and thought it would be a bigger crowd. Nothing like the AMA Superbike races. Seemed like a decent amount of racers though.
