Here are facts and stories that future and current generations might appreciate, and strangers too, from my extended family. Welcome! Ceud mìle fàilte! Fair faw ye!

The most recent posts will be highlighted, and as the site grows I will try to organise indexes that make sense in the Storyshelf, and maybe add an introduction here.
