Welcome!

Carpe diem!!  (Seize the carp!!)

"Nae fabled wizard's wand I trow

Had e'er the magic airt o' Gow,

When, wi' a wave, he draws his bow

Across his wondrous fiddle!"

The above verse is possibly NOT by Robert Burns!

But it is from a fine poem, "To Mr Gow, Visiting Dumfries." (James Barke edition, pub. 1955)

I hope you enjoy my web site.

Sub-zero temperatures and hard frosts herald the approaching winter. Brrr!
