Precision! Architects??? Well at least he didn't add Builders to the
list.

In point of fact there is a small class of Architects who manage to
exist entirely on theoretical projects and who never choose to build
anything in the real world. Most of the rest of us ignore them and find
their occasional jargon filled diatribes incomprehensible.

Linlithgow Country Dance Club is having a Marches Dance on Friday 13th
June in Burgh Halls, Linlithgow at 7.30, Admission £5.
There will be both Country Dances and Ceilidh dances and admission is
open to Dancers, friends, family and the general public.

The annual Scotch Hop programme should be available by now at
www.scotchhop.co.uk - 6 programmes of mixed Country and Ceilidh during
July, August and September

Live in the Real World.
