Caledonia calling...

Text settings

All good things come to an end. As some readers know, I'm leaving Washington DC this week (tomorrow in fact!) to return to Caledonia, stern and wild. Bittersweet reflections on some times in America will doubtless follow in due course, but in general blogging will be light for the next few days as I adjust to life back in the old country and try, more or less, to get organised.

In the meantime - and as a break from gruesome packing - here's a classic Tennents Lager ad from way back when which gets to the guts of the matter. While one sometimes thinks it would be nice to quit Scotland for good, in the end that's not as easy to do as it sounds.
