    I don't believe I've drunk a good single malt in my whole entire life.

    And by that, I mean I've liderally never tried one.

    Bah! Humbug!

    By the way, are there many dams in England? If there is, I don't remember hearing much about them.

    I'm watching a documentary on TV at the moment about the building of the Grand Coulee Dam out west. We have some pretty big dams around here. If you remember the dam scenes in The Fugitive, that dam was one in NC on the Little Tennessee River. It's a big dam, but nothing compared to the Grand Coulee.

    But, perhaps you don't give a damn about dams.

    A gentleman never talks about his sporran. However, I'll chat all day about mine.

    Dam it!

    I think we have the odd one or two, but we're not a massive dam-building nation, as a general rule.

    On the other hand, we had to have a few so James Bond could practice running down them.

    Does anyone have a sporran? My husband still has his from his teenage years when having to go to formal occasions. He hasn't used it since he was 18.

    Singapore is too small for dams. Our rivers are too short and narrow anyway. We do have about 6 or 7 reservoirs, though.

    We have lots of Scotsmen, though. There is a strong following for Burns night and they also celebrate St Andrew's Day. My very Scottish husband has never bothered to attend any of them. I think it is his way of avoiding wearing his skirt and sporran.

    He hasn't worn one in the last thirty years, since I've known him. He did wear them quite a lot as a child (I've seen pictures and that boy from the fifties and early sixties is definitely him!). In his teens he wore a kilt only for formal occasions and then after eighteen, I think he gave his kilt to Oxfam.

    Sean Connery was the best, I agree.

    But don't tell nobody.

    Off to bed. Hopefully Sean Connery will creep into my dreams. Not the Sean Connery today, the one from the days/years of James Bond.

    Dream, dream, dream...

    Good night everyone!
