To Ron, Bruce and all other Islay enthusiasts from afar and local.[/b
]If 2010 was not so good a year, here is wishing you a better 2011.
If you had a good 2010, may 2011 be even better.
Here, in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, our winter is quite similar to Islay's so far, some snow and temps. around 0degC. At least the ground is white but we are expecting rain tomorrow so it may be a brown Christmas after all.
Well, I will be sitting by the fireplace (gas, not peat) this evening sipping on a wee dram of Bowmore 12, my favourite single malt. I saw the photos of Bowmore and all its snow. Makes me want to be there. Maybe some day.
The Maggie is one of Ealing studios lesser known comedies. A wily old skipper of a Western Isles 'Puffer' and his motley crew lead all who come into contact with them a fine old time! Many scenes on Islay!
