    I didn't save Anselm's message but I seem to recall that he didn't exclude
    postings on matters concerning 9/11 as long as the bulk of the message was
    related to SCD.

    Not Mairi's Wedding, but the same sort of question for Miss G's Strathspey:
    I would like to know what folks think about "staying in the middle" as the
    1st Cpl finishes corner-partner turns before dancing three-hands-across with
    the supporting couples.  I find it satisfying to finish the left-hand turn
    with my partner at the set lines and then surge forward toward the 2d cpl
    for the hands across figure; staying in the center defeats this, to my mind.
    
    I should add here that I don't have the original/official instructions for
    this dance; the cheat sheet for Ramblewood specified doing in that way.
