An independent Scotland will no doubt legislate to revert to proper Scots language so in order to help the rest of the world understand what we are saying here are some links

the first allows you to type in an english word and you gets the Scots version

www.scots-online.org/dictionary/english_scots.asp

this one seems to require you to already know every feckin word in Scots in order to get a result

Why the fiddle avatar? Do you play?

Yes I can eek out a tune or two, but am definitely not an accomplished musician.

That fiddle is very poorly made. It was may late aunt's. Says made in 1865 by a German guy, but the label is not original. Had it restored years back, the varnish was done in about 1995. Tone is now really nice, with slovak made Warchal strings, at first its tone was horrible, probably because it hadn't been played in 70 years.

Have it tuned in Hardangr mode GDGB (It should be AEAC# but i don't want to strain the instrument) also known as The Devil's Tuning. You get a lot of interesting harmonics and resonances. Old-time American fiddle music uses that tuning too.

Have another fiddle, also German made in1883 by Louis Lowendall (Loewenthall). Says made in Dresden.

"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

~ J. W. v. Goethe

Scots and Irish traditional music are very different. Edit - well I admit in Ulster the fiddlers play in a more Scots like maner. The Irish variant is highly decorated and much more swingy - suggest you listen to artists like Michael Coleman (Irish from Sligo)




Tarbolton Reel, Longford Collector, Sailor's Bonnet



compared to Scott Skinner (Scots)

Saw Yehudi Menuhin play at the Embassy Cinema in Edinburgh... definitely a GOOD Jew, as is his son....
The book consists of three sections. The first section concerns Adolf Hitler, and the real causes leading up to the outbreak of WWII.

The second section enlarges on the activities of the real culprits, provides a historical overview of their progress, their nature, their power over finance and the media, and the methods by which they achieved it.

The third section concerns the First and Second World Wars (what the author refers to as "the Second Thirty Years War"), their conception, funding and inescapable continuity; current laws against freedom of expression, and the evolution of the Orwellian state; the importance of U.S. support for the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War, and Communism's significance in the plan; the true origins of the enemy; Palestine's occupation and its fate as an example of our common fate; plus much more.

The text is interspersed with "Memos from Today," that emphasize its relevance by citing current events.

Hundreds of quotes are included from a wide range of authoritative sources, original and translated. The last pages of this manuscript comprise conclusions and predictions.

The author is the son of the great American-born violinist Yehudi Menuhin, who, though from a long line of rabbinical ancestors, fiercely criticized the foreign policy of the state of Israel and its repression of the Palestinians in the Holy Land.
