First Post

Hmm, I suppose first post is better than last post (is that a lone trumpeter I hear?)

I've absolutely no idea what this blog will contain (although there will definately be a touch of "Grumpy Old Man" and some rude links about it ) or how it will pan out over time but reasoned that if I didn't start one, I'd have no motivation to think about content.

I've got some photos to post of the general area in which I live but my degenerate student daughter refuses to give me the cable to connect the digi cam to the PC so that'll have to wait for a wee while. Feckin' students.

Meanwhile, a wee diversion. I've often wondered why in Aberdeen, the newsagent was pronounced "John Menzees" while everywhere else in Scotland it's called "John Mingees." Turns out it stems from an interesting root called this.

Oh dear, I've already started with a rude bit - never mind.
