Scotland - after the Referendum ...

Yes !  I know that folk reading this will be thinking and saying - if most of the Scots voters had voted YES you would have got Independance... Yeah I know!  and we have no option but to accept the figures as they have been given to us. 

Hi Again,

Well folks, the referendum has come and gone and what has happened in the 7 days since? 

1)  Cameron has backtracked on extra powers for Scotland only five hours after the referendum vote was known.

2)  The oil that was going to run out in 20 years is somehow now amazingly going to last for another 120 years. The 'Clair' field alone will produce 120 barrels a day.

3)  The NHS that was perfectly fine (according to Labour 7 days ago).  It is now being privatised with Labour urging for help to save it!

4)  Plans for the Barnett formula are to be scrapped.

5)  Spending is to be cut in Scotland.

6)  Fracking has been given the green light in Scotland ... OH WOW!

7)  Child benefits are now to be frozen.

8)  The Pension age is rising to 70 yrs.

9)  There is to be a 'Benefits ban' for under 25's.

Oh and number 

10)  'Best of all'  we get to follow America into another war! Happy Days!!

Well ......  were they right when they said we were better together??  
We should have been prouder of the amount of natural resources in Scotland not wondering whether or not we could run our own country. 

We should have taken it into our own hands and made Scotland the country it should have been - instead of having so little confidence as to think we couldn't have made it on our own! 

Happy Days, Kate xxx.

P.S.  Yeah, I know - would have,  could have,  should have ......

If God had made Scottish folk like English folk we could have moved mountains but, we've missed the bus this time and now we've got to live with it until the 'next' Referendum  ....... ARRRRGGGHHH ! 

I wonder what will be happening then Hmmmm.... Will the 'NOs' win again?  Somehow ' I hae ma doots ' !   Surely to God they will have learned !

A bit of USA History and something funny.

Hi There,

This video is a very interesting,  informative and eye opening wee history lesson.     

Well - Who'd have thunk it Eh ???

I thought it was only Russia, China,  North Korea, Germany, the UK and the Middle East who did things like this... I didn't realize that the 'U.S.A.' were involved in it too. 

~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ 

and now for something to laugh at !

Cheers, Kate xxx.

A ' Beautiful ' video !

Hi There,

 Take a look at this video which was sent to me recently ... 
 "Thanks John" .
Every night and day we sit and moan about the rubbish being 
passed off as commercials on TV that we are forced to watch by 
our commercial networks.

If only all commercials were like this one there would be no complaints.  This one really is "Magic".  David Attenborough does it again.

PS..  I especially love the bit where the monkeys are tippie-toeing through the water... it always has the gift of making me laugh out loud ....  Does it have the same effect on you?

Cheers, Kate xxx.
