    Finding Out

    Me and my mum were at Subway, and she was on her iPhone like crazy. Then she told me that I was from Scotland, it explained a lot to. Then all of my life made sense. I thought and thought about every thing, hmmm, I can speak Scottish and British, I'm good at golf. At first I only...

    My maternal grandmother comes from the line of

    Robert the Bruce. Recently had a family tree paid for and our family is linked to Robert as well as the Keith clan. I believe it's Keith, if anyone's interested I can get the specifics. Proud of it too, even though my grandma was threatened to be shot in Ireland. :-)

    ​Ever since I was little I've been drawn to

    Scotland, and England too really... it's all just so beautiful, magical and mystical to me. I love the countryside, the medieval ruins and the strength and humor of the people. Kilts are nice too, as are those cute furry cows :) My fascination probably started with Arthurian...

    My paternal grandparents came to this country in 1908 (independently--they met here).  Unfortunately they both had passed away before I was born.  Nevertheless, my dad & aunt kept the flame as I grew up hearing them singing 'Loch Lomond' & "I love a lassie," playing records of...
