howdy and welcome from the left coast of the states. are ye from the area I traveled through in "75 on the way from England up to aviemore where a sign leaning against the wall of the bed-n-breakfast said "weet pent"? I still have the picture of that sign. I went up a few years later through aviemore to skye and rode the mail boat from there to fort William.
anyway, welcome and I hope the weather is better than I would imagine where you are.
