Selkie Mate, Lang may yer lum reek, I was born on the 25th of Jan my dead Dad a romantic gave me a R Burns 1st edition 60yrs ago, it is a treasure beyond worth.
The Burns I quoted in the previous post was from his little known step brother M.I. Bum-Burns from his ode to Chill Blains

Selkie mate, my Dad was an avid antique collector and dealer on of his prized pieces was a Scottish made flintlock which due to the subjugation of the Scot's is a rare find, I collect art, clocks,old motor bikes and record players.

Is that ornate mantle clock carved wood or ceramic? It's lovely either way.

Do you ride that bike!? I love it!

I collect:
* books on breads, baking and ancient kitchens, practices and cuisine,
* foreign paper currency
* people as friends whom no one else wants to associate with... ( a very eclectic collection)

Bolas and Selkie,
I took a class of 17th and 18th lyric poetry in university that, of course, covered a lot of Burn's work. Loved it!

Princess - I just remembered another one from catering - cranberry and chocolate chip. Craisins and chocolate chips with a teaspoon of lemon zest in the batter.

I've got lots of Burns, but I'm a Service (Robert W.) type of girl.

Another written down.

Spinach and parmesan...for a savory?

I love Service as well. I do pretty well in all the poetry and literature categories on Jeopardy. But I guess as an English major I should.

Spinach and parmesan....hmm, sounds interesting. would you use fresh spinach leaves? I think I would...in fact I have some so may just try this!

Thanks, Princess! See, you got the idea now!
