happy Burns Night, everyone…

today, January 25, is the birthday of Robert Burns. traditionally, Burns Night may be spent at a Burns Supper, where diners may enjoy traditional Scottish cuisine and Burns’ poetry.

i’m not fortunate enough to be attending a Supper this year, but i am enjoying a small glass of uisce beatha. i hope the holiday finds you all well also…

quote of the evening:

“Inspiring bold John Barleycorn, What dangers thou canst make us scorn! Wi’ tippenny, we fear nae evil; Wi’ usquebae, we’ll face the devil!” – Robert Burns, Tam o’ Shanter
