Address To The Unco Guid

Here's a poem by Robert Burns, written in 1786...  My Grandfather was a keen Burns man and when I was a child he taught me this poem by way of instilling a belief of 'live and let live' into my life.  This poem has adorned my living-room wall for many years.  The poem is called, "Address To The Unco Guid, Or The Rigidly Righteous".  I hope you like it...

 

O ye wha are sae guid yoursel', 
Sae pious and sae holy, 
Ye've nought to do but mark and tell 
Your neibours' fauts and folly! 
Whase life is like a weel-gaun mill, 
Supplied wi' store o' water; 
The heaped happer's ebbing still, 
An' still the clap plays clatter.

Snow Plough Ditched on Dryburn Brae

The snow-plough that was charged with clearing the snow drifts from Dryburn Brae had to be rescued after the snow-plough left the road and ended up in the ditch at the roadside.  The plough became stuck in the ditch near the top of the brae around 3pm and it took a large JCB to dig the snowplough out and tow it back onto the road.  Eventually, the snowplough was freed around 10pm.

Documentary on windfarm and community

If anyone is interested in how a U.S. community coped with the advent of wind-powered turbines in their locale, I've added a link below to the video documentary...

Windfall (2012)

Wind power... Its green... Its good... Or is it?  Windfall exposes the wind energy development when the residents of a rural upstate New York town consider going green.

Watch Windfall (2012) Online at my son's movie website, www.movie1.co.uk

This could very well be our own beloved glen in a few years time so please take the time to watch this documentary and maybe we can collectively learn something from other folks experience.

I hope you like it.  Let me know what you think by leaving a comment here on the glen website!
