Daisey, I do not know if you heard about this or not, but with the call for people to stand at their front doors at 8pm last night and applaud these heroes, in Scotland we were asked to also play Scotland The Brave on the bagpipes at the same time, very emotional it was too.

There is a short video here of pipers in various locations, hope you are able to view it : -

I couldn't have borrowed them. I don't know for sure what Scottish animal you lot squeeze and blow into to make it scream like it does but I think it's a bit cruel ;)

You are getting a virtual hug from me too, like it or not!

I remember when Mr J's mum was dying with cancer, he wouldn't play any music going to and from the hospital because he didn't want any song to remind him of that time, so I understand what you mean. Of course, it often can't be helped, songs are always the things which take me instantly back to places and people.

I found this place close to 20 years ago and for long while spent a lot of time here and made some long life friends.  To all of my Bruce friends - be safe and look after yourself and your loved ones.  Times like these usually have lasting impact on things.  Just like when this place was created for us.  So lets rejoice for what we have and stay the course.  Its all we can do.  Be safe
