Aha-you're in the FC too? Excellent! We are also regulars at Rio...and have been since the College Ave days (back when they let my friends and I drink even though we were FAR under age
As I'm pregnant right now its lost much of its appeal but soon, my friend, I'll be back in the game. We should def meet up!

Well, it's just old home week here in the middle of Nelson's trip report, what with the MacKenzies and the Fort Collins folks!

GreenDragon, my girls compete in bagpipes and Scottish snare drum. They bought themselves the weathered MacKenzie for their personal kilts - it would be the "muted brown" on the site you linked to. A better represenation:
It's nice and subtle and is a good contrast to the bright tartans they have worn playing in their bands. They might have chosen a modern MacKenzie but at the time they ordered their kilts they were wearing Davidson for their band, which is also green/navy/bit of red. I like the Seaforth's version.

I've got some photos from our trip online now. I made the leap and now have my own web domain!

Click on the "Scotland" link. That will take you to a page of Edinburgh photos, with links to pages for Skye and the Northeast.

If you hover your cursor over a thunbnail the full sized image should pop up. If you click the thumb the big image will stay put, unless you hover over another thumb.

I am learning XHTML and CSS, and still playing around with the design of the page. That will go on for a long time. I need to add better navigation, pretty buttons, etc. The whole design may change over the next weeks or months, but have a look if you are interested.

(Ani, there's a photo of my wife carrying some beer. If you ever see us at the Rio she'll be carrying margs!)

Nelson: Love your site! The photos are terrific and i really like the simple navigation.

When folks ask about Dunnottar or whether Skye is worth more than a drive through, we need to link them to your site.

I made a beaded sash for the Seaforth McKenzie tartan once... pic here:

It's hard to see the red in that picture, but it's all made with glass delica beads loomed into a sash.
