dollar potter poncho

Well I ain't a Harry Potter fan but I enjoyed the films. This latest one seems to be flying off the shelves in it's millions. I prefer my reading material a bit more real and am enjoying a fine read by Jack Webster, a journalist from the North East of Scotland, Maud to be precise who has written about his life in a book called 'a grain of truth'. He was born in the 1930's and met a host of celebrities but never forgot his roots.

music wise this week I have been having my mp3 on random and watching some fantastic stuff on Google video. check out the Edith Piaf clips. she is so fantastic.

I got a couple of westerns at the weekend. Geronimo and A fistful of dollars. Here is a bit of tumbleweed to get you in the mood to check out a poncho and cowboy boots.

Speaking of fine Scottish writers (and real things) did I ever ask/tell you about a wonderful book called "Lone Star Swing" by Duncan Maclean? It's in print and available from Amazon & other fine book dealers. Love the illustration to this post, too, y'all!

hi enchilada!!
good to get your post..I have been remiss about getting the posts up but hope to be visiting a bit more. Yes, you did mention the book by Duncan Maclean and I do have it and loved it. If you want a real good read about how the scottish legacy read arthur herman's book called 'the scottish enlightenment' a wonderful read. did you know that the american grid street system was based on the new town in edinburgh?
the illustration was one i found on the net, i hope the owner is ok with me using it. it is a great pic and well worth sharing with the world.
