Robbie Burns Bash Looms!

Thanks to How the Scots Invented Canada, we had a pretty good run, Sheena Fraser McGoogan and I, with bagpipers piping us into one event or another. Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal . . . who knew the Scots were so keen to party? They're at it again, and us along with them, on Jan. 23, this time in Hamilton at the 92nd annual Robbie Burns night at the Scottish Rite Club. The Grand master of the Grand Lodge of Canada will be there, and Liam McLashan will play celtic fiddle. I'll give the "toast to the 'twa lands," and I will speak for an hour. OK, OK, ten minutes. Maybe see you there!
