    Re: Incredible Dance escape this year ?(plus the tiniest "peep")

    Thank you Ron
    
    I loved it there - yes people could laugh at themselves - and it was
    incredible lovely to live there - People cared - I went back to Maynooth in
    Co Kildare, last year after 14 years away - went into the post-office, up to
    the counter, where this man was sitting (my age) - and he said "Thought it
    was you when you walked in" - Had I been away?  it did not seem like it.
    
    To keep to the scottish thread - we did a Burns night at my hubbys work -
    and could not get Haggis imported - we did get one in as a biological
    specimen (hubby being a biotechnologist) - but I had to make the rest -
    arrived at the university cantine with all the necessary bits of sheep -
    muslin bag instead of stomach - and asked "where's the mincer?"  Chef looks
    at me and says "we haven't got one - here's a knife" - chopped up the
    innards of what to me seemed like several dead sheep - with a knife - for 70
    people.  plus made the oat-cakes and danced the night away.
    
    It was great.
    
    Pia
