Ina Morrison – an inspirational woman

16 03 2015

Ina Morrison lives on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. We stay in her home every year in the summer. She is a very special woman in our lives. If you want to be inspired, whatever your beliefs or non beliefs, take a few minutes and listen to her story that was broadcast on BBC Alba TV last night, 15 March 2015. She comes on 10 minutes into the programme. http://www.bbc.co.uk/…/b055jg56/alleluia-series-3-episode-11

26 02 2015

A few photos I took in the summer of 2014 at Lews Castle in Stornoway where the new archive and exhibition centre is being built.

24,000 immigrants needed for an independent Scotland (apparently)

12 09 2014

…now this is interesting. From reading through various campaign sites I’ve discovered that if Scotland votes YES, they will require, due to the ageing population, a minimum of 24,000 immigrants per annum, who can work and pay the necessary taxes . According to SNP they will all have very high skill levels. So that’s ok then. There’s hope for unemployed English people. I can see a mass exodus.
