    I was going to comment that I've never seen McMillan spelled like that before.

    Re: Alastair

    It was new car warranty I was talking about Euan. The dealer here adds on his own warranty free of charge. I wouldn't BUY an extended warranty on a used car or any appliance for that matter.

    Re: Alastair

    I guess it must be the dealer here. They have been operating for over 70 years by the same family and if you want to book your car in for a service it's usually a 7/10 day wait. They must be doing...

    I haven't found that Euan but maybe it's the dealer here......they have a very good reputation. When my last Hyundai was getting near the end of warranty, they did an end of warranty check and fixed...

    Alastair

    Alastair, did you tell me that Kia has a 7 year warranty in Canada? I ask because they have just started advertising here that all new cars will have a 7 year warranty. Until now it's been 5 years....

    I'd forgotten that about the poultry industry. We used to have chicken for our Xmas dinner when I was a kid. It wasn't a meal you'd have weekly.

    Re: Scottish Accent

    You're right Sandy. Also a lot of the old words have fallen out of use with the younger ones today, although they still know the meanings.

    PS I've got a tape of that Andy Stewart song too.

    Also fish farming has brought the food produced with the budget of the average person. I remember in Scotland when salmon was just too expensive for an average wage earner to buy. I don't think I...

    I love my e-reader. My having one makes no difference whatsoever to paper book sales as I never bought them anyway. Reason being that I read too many to afford to buy apart from the fact that once...

    It's probably my computer Alastair but I couldn't get the link to come up (the men & women one). I have no patience if a link takes more than 30 seconds. Is it a large file?

    I would have thought that LA was too far from San Francisco for a bus tour????? I was there on my honeymoon in 1972.....I'm sure it will have changed a lot since then.

    Breaking news on the TV just announced that the NO vote has won. Seems like most of the bigger cities voted Yes. Glasgow and surrounds polled a massive yes vote.

    Haha. I've actually got this book which has excerpts from newspapers from 1868 onwards. It's called "Australia Through Time" and it's very interesting.

    Euan, much of what you said was also said when Australia became independent in 1901.
