How do you say "Balquidder"? I'm briefing this dance at tonight's Hogmanay
ball (in eight hours). I've heard both bal-key-der and bal-wee-der. I
thought it was bal-wee-der, but the English person who asked me to brief it
said bal-key-der.

Please send a private message to xxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.xxx. PureVoice files are
welcome but DO NOT POST FILES TO THE LIST.

Whatever I say, I'm sure to be corrected from the floor! I'll check my
e-mail about 6:00 p.m. (in six hours).

Cheers -- and ta,
