My new lady, she is great fun, early days yet but we are very much on the same wavelength in a lot of ways.

A view of Crail by RiserDog on Flickr.Definitely the most picturesque harbour in the East Neuk of Fife, it is best viewed from the West Braes, as you come in to Crail from Anstruther. Surrounding the harbour are houses dating back to the 17th Century, with white walls and red pan tiled roofs. One of these used to be the customs house and on the side has a plaque bearing the town arms. The harbour has even been recreated in a detailed scaled model in Lego Land.
In the harbour are a few small boats that go partan (edible crabs) and lobster fishing, which are sold at the harbour and at the various fish merchants and sheds throughout the East Neuk villages.

A wee song from a man I am very honoured to call a friend, next time you watch Braveheart just think about Ted with a wee smile on your face.

Where’s The River Mel?    © Ted Christopher

An Australian came to town one day and he brought a film crew
Said, “ You’ve got a story here. I’ll tell you what I’ll do.
I’m gonna take this man called Wallace and I’m gonna spread his fame
And very soon the whole wide world will know your hero’s name.”

So he talked to the historians of battles that were won
And how that day at Stirling Bridge we made the English run
Then he talked to all his money men and it seems they had their way
‘cos they made the film in Ireland so now I’ve got to say

“Where’s the river Mel? Won’t you stand here with me?
Look down from Stirling Castle, tell me what’s that you see?
That’s a river Mel and it’s where it’s always been
So how come there’s no trace of it upon your silver screen”?

We fought hand to hand to save our land, it was hot and sweaty work
When the English come we bared our bums, we did not give a f………..oot.
Then we turned back to the water’s edge to wash off all the gore
But it’s hard to bathe in a river that ain’t there anymore

Where’s……………..

Well they called the film Braveheart and it was loads of fun
It wisnae much like history but at least we still won
Now the tourists come from o’er the world to gaze down on this place
But as they look out to the monument there’s surprise upon their face

Cos there’s a river Mel and its where it’s always been
So how come there’s no trace of it upon your silver screen
Aye that’s oor river Mel – the real battlescene,
where Wallace sent them homeward to think again

So if you ever get to thinking that Bannockburn could be a theme
Please remember Mel “burn” is Scottish for a stream.

Personal

So scared, am falling for someone and they feel the same way……
