We hunted around for a "Burns Supper" and finally found one in a local pub.  When we turned up, we found our Canadian friends from Larkhill, so we sat with them.  About 10 minutes before we got started, the pub owner came to ask Peter if he was Scottish and would he 'address the haggis' since the bloke who had committed to do it didn't show up...

I also took a couple of "videos" of the piper playing, but had the camera sideways, so they are dark and sideways...and perhaps not worth the effort to watch.  Your choice... Piper video #1
