The Cherry Blossom Shiner

For my non-Scottish readers, Oor Wullie is a comic strip about a lad who is forever in trouble. It can be read every Sunday in the Sunday Post - Scotland's best selling Sunday paper.

I used to get the Oor Wullie annual every year for Christmas from my Gran. She was, of course, half Scottish.

That makes me about an eighth Scottish, I think, but I haven't inherited Kirkcaldy tendencies.

Apart from a love of haggis, obv.

Oh Marvo, I can't imagine your granny with Kirkcaldy tendencies.

I know grown men and women who are still disappointed if Santa doesn't bring them the Oor Willie or The Broons annuals.

Was in Londistan today with my boys, they were v annoyed that helicopters were hanging around Westmidden, I explained to my 9 year old why they were there, he was very understanding.

At the Imperial War Museum, eldest taking notes on the Holocaust for Grammar School studies; all it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing - 13 years of evil to be exact and about to end - Enshallah!

That's true CD, in today's world it's perhaps interpreted as for any evil to rear it's head means that those who have no evil stick their heads in the sands.

I know DL, but I didn't want to upset TS by asking him to change it. Anyway that would be an insult to Oor Willie. :)
