Go for the Burn

Whoever puts the Apple calendar together needs to go.

If not to the Job Centre then at least to a lesson on Scottish Literature.


Unless it's a painful reminder of the time they got too close to the scalding, gushing entrails at the crucial 'An' cut ye up wi' ready slicht' moment.

Durga Mata

Thanks to football fan Ann F for this one.
