Good morning.
I am friends with everybody, but I've never met Megannah before.
Sorry, no.

Why don't you write a letter to one of the Edinburgh papers, or e-editions (?)

Questions for Mctag
HI, Mctag. HOw are you?

I have more questions for you:

Are "clubs" what they call gangs in Scotland?

Megannah told me there were bunchesof gangs in Edinburgh, but she only listed one. What should I do, because I'd like for her to list more of them?

I've been trying to get her attention, and I posted more questoins for her? Is she away?

Question for McTag
Mctag, what's the title of this song:

Drums in my heart are drummin'
I hear the bagpipes hummin'
My Bonnie Lassie's comin' over the sea
My heart with her she's bringin'
I hear the blue bells ringin'
Soon we'll be highland flingin'
My love and me

Somewhere a ship and crew
Sails o'er the ocean blue
Bringing, oh, bringing
My bonnie back to me
That's why the drums are drummin'
That's why the pips are hummin'
My Bonnie Lassie's comin', comin' to me

Sad are the lads she's leavin'
Many a sigh they're heavin'
Even the heather's grievin', cryin' with dew
She's left her native highland
To come and live in my land
She'll love the folks who smile
And say, "how-de-do"

I'll meet her at the shore
Playin' the pipes for her
Dressed in a kilt and a tam o'shanter too
Drums in my heart are drummin'
I hear the bagpipes hummin'
My Bonnie Lassie's comin', comin' to me

Hi

That sounds like a modern confection to me. I've never seen these words before.

Question for McTag
Hello McTag:

"Chan eil càil a dh`fhios `am" and "pog mo thoin" are Scottish terms of endearment-what do they mean in English?

I think someone may be pulling your leg, my friend. I don't have the Gaelic myself, but I'm pretty sure the second of these phrases means "kiss my arse"

Apologies if I am wrong.

Saw this. Might be of passing interest.
