Hi Duncan
Just thought that you would like to know that I'm you visitor from Hinckley. I'm glad that your Frappr thingy recognises that, because Sitemeter always thinks that I'm from Paisley, Renfrewshire, which can't be true, as I don't have a Scottish passport.
I take it that you haven't changed your mind re. the breechclouts :-)

Hi BG/Steff.

I noticed last night that the default setting for Scotland was Wegie...err, Glasgow.

I like my merino wool shreddies, and find they don't chaffe, so don't need to go down that route. Each to their own, and what works for someone works for them. The b'clout worked for lots of people in times gone by. If it didn't work, they'd have used something else instead. Just doesn't interest me.

There's a discussion on OutdoorsMagic about this, to folks who're wondering what's going on.
