Marjorie,

Really? Well I didn't mean to say the dances aren't popular or to say they
weren't nice dances, no not at all. I guess I was just suprised so see them
there. I suppose this is what happens when we talk about things being
popular as opposed to what we like. I would have supposed "Neidpath Castle"
would have been in there somewhere among the strathspeys. ;-) It was
listed a few years back in the "Top 50" but as I look at that list I see
where Sugar Candie was the top of the strathspeys @ 16.7% while the Braes
was not listed. Neidpath was listed next at 14.6% and Miss Gibson's
Strathspey @ 13.3%
