I haven't been a member very long so haven't had much interaction with the staff as yet, but enjoyed reading about you all! What a varied bunch of people.
It also served as a reminder that I have yet to introduce myself properly..
I will get on to that one of these days but right now I have more important things to do like, MAKE TACO's and Quacamole! Thanks Skeptic OverlLord!!! I can't wait

In Aug (?) 2003 I participated in the San Diego Scottish Games. It was my
first time & never even practiced or conditioned for them. I had competed
the year before with my Border Collie in the herding competition & since the
2003 event would be my last one in CA I decided to take it ALL in...

I competed with my dog on Sat & Sun...competed in the games & ALL I really
wanted to do was the Caber Toss but not possible. I had to participate all the
way through the games in order to toss the Caber. I had never even had one in
me hand...1st toss was perfect end over end! That made me bloody day...the 2nd
not so good...balancing is difficult.

Next was "Bad Hagas" a great band! There was a set of congas not being used...
I'm a professional drummer not a professional percussionist only play for fun.

Well when they are under the same tent giving away free Scotch samples things
happen. I got dared by me friends to go up & start jamming with them. Well it all
went great & they invited me to come back & play with them the next day. I couldn't
believe it. And come to find out the drummer & I were both endorsed by Paiste Cymbals.

What a great weekend to accomplish the 3 things I love most just before leaving my
favorite state!

Thanks for being part of the team!

Cheers
Ektar

I wasn't there in 2003, but was ten years prior to that. Sounds like a classic great time at the games, and you got to jam! Excellent!

Caber toss................ I have done a perfect toss ONCE. I know what you mean when you talk about the exhilaration of doing it right! Other times, off to the side, and at least three times it came back on me while running with tha' damn thing. Body bonks ensued, once on my head. Yeah, right. Walk it off.

Thanks.

Ask Springer about my 11-seasoning shrimp... he doesn't like shrimp, he couldn't stop eating them.

Also ask him about my coffee-rub bone-in (cowboy) ribeye steak.

Do you understand how annoying that is. Oh, I have a great recipe for shrimp. Well in Australia we call them prawns. We plop them on the barbie. How about sharing the recipe so we can all try it! It is not as if you can send me any.

Hi Springer, we are all so lucky for you to have started this site. I love the cultural mix of people, well balanced conversations, & now Skeptics Wonderful Food with Tequila.

So how were those Shrimp with 11 Spices? & coffee-rub bone-in (cowboy) rib-eye steak?
Starting to think maybe Skeptic needs a recipe thread or cooking show...LOL!

I'm glad you are still part of ATS after all these years. My life would be pretty boring without
this joint. I don't have TV & spend alot of time here reading different topics. There's such a
plethora of information & what an awesome library. Thank you for sharing.

Cheers
Ektar

...........and many musical commonalities and instruments. Food+music+drink= !! What I found at the Highland Games was that several clans claimed relatives/areas/geography that crossed into both countries. ......or maybe it was just a reason for anyone with a tenuous link to party. That's Celtic too.


So true. I'm Scottish (Northern) but have never been to Scotland. Growing up people were
always trying to recruit me to play drums in the pipe band at Grandfather Mountain.

I never had the time since I was the drum line leader all through school & I was also
very involved in sports. I really enjoy the games when I can go but I haven't been since I
left CA in 2003. I am just thankful for the opportunity I had at the moment.

I do love Scotch Eggs & Meat Pies although I rarely get to have any. Occasionally
someone will bring some to our Border Collie Sheepdog Trials.

Cheers
Ektar.

Good LAWD,

they'd fight to the core even if it Only was about the sex of a newborn. ...

last few days == case in point.

who cares!?


a) They changed the succession so that even if it was a girl born first they'd still be first heir to the throne, so most of us wanted it to be a girl for the simple fact that it would be something that was essentially changing history and removing the stigma of royals praying for boys as it didn't matter any more.
b) Princess Shaniqua had a really special ring to it.
c) Saying that, George is cute. So I don't think anyone really cares that much.

Epic thread! Thank you! Some people harsh on you guys/gals but most of us know you are human! Well I hope!


Anyways thanks for letting us get to know you all a little better. It will bring the family closer together. I love my ATS! Oh and Skeptic Overlord... thanks for making us all hungry! I think I may have to try your fish tacos!

You have to post some of your recipes to the Food & Cooking forum!

Love to all!

O.K. I am going to bite or like want a bite! Springer give us the scope on this coffee-rub ribeye! My family are and have always been steak eaters. Put a steak in front of my 4, 7 & 9 year old and they will devour it and plenty more and fight over the bone.

Makes this mama happy! So will someone give us the recipe????

Hello everyone;

It took me awhile I got through all of your intros. ( Thanks and it's nice to meet the people behind the names)
All of you seem to have come to this site nearly the same way,and interesting lives.

I came here (I was a long time lurker, probably at least 5 years) after hearing an advertisement on one of my favorite Radio Programs.)

I'm terrible though at introductions; my life is boring.
Busy sometimes helping my friend who is like a mother to me, this hasn't been too good a year.

But I do enjoy coming here and reading posts, sometimes responding. Only if I can intelligently respond.
This is a good site to get news the MSM just don't want to mention, it's nice to know their are still thinking and intelligent people are still around.
