scotlandwolvesWolves lived in Scotland for thousands of years until heightened hunting eventually drove them into extinction.

The wolf traditionally cited as the last in all of Scotland, is said to have been killed on the upper reaches of the River Findhorn in the year 1743. According to this story a "black beast", thought to be a wolf, had attacked a woman and two children as they crossed the hills from Calder. So the Laird of Maclntosh arranged a "Tainchel" or gathering, to which all the hunters in the district were summoned, to attempt to drive the wolf from hiding and kill it. A well-known hunter of great reknown named MacQueen was ordered to attend, with his hunting dogs. MacQueen asked questions about the place of the alleged attack and sightings of the wolf, and promised to join the hunt.

On the day chosen Maclntosh and all the hunting men of the district gathered promptly - except for MacQueen, who was conspicuous by his absence. Time passed, and the Laird's temper grew short. At last MacQueen made a casual entrance with his dogs at heel, to be scolded immediately for his lateness by the angry Laird of Maclntosh.

Which is healthier - coffee or smoothies?

It seems obvious that the answer must be a smoothie. After all, drinking coffee is a necessary evil while having a smoothie, made from fruit, is part of your five-a-day. But when you look into the scientific studies they reveal something much more surprising. Let's start with coffee.

There have been numerous claims down the years that drinking coffee will increase your risk of a whole range of terrible things from heart disease to cancer.

bellspalsyI remember when this happened to me, it is one of the most scary experiences I've ever had, go to bed one night, everything working properly in my face, wake up the next morning and half my face was paralysed.

It is a life changing condition, it makes you realise just how important your facial expressions are needed. I was exceptionally lucky that within 6 weeks I had 95% of movement back, but even after all these years, it still scares me. The total lack of information, surrounding this condition is appalling.

Well done to John Sudworth from the BBC, for the story, and highlighting this condition, read his full story here

Let me just say that the party involved has asked to remain anonymous. I will honour that request.

Paging through this site you will notice there is no love lost between myself and

  • the owner of the old Minos Imperial now named the Radisson Blu
  • Greek bureaucracy
  • Corruption

Found out yesterday all these have combined to all but finish my local hostelry.
