It is very scary to live in a country where anyone can get a gun.

Bleh...

Anyways,

Does Scotland have 4 seasons?

What is Haggis?

four seasons?


yeah.....salt, pepper, more salt and more pepper.




ummm, U2Girl1978, have you ever been out of the USA?



yes.....spring, summer, autumn and winter!





anyway....


Haggis is the national dish of Scotland. It is both beloved and reviled by the natives. It often horrifies people who hear it described for the first time. I find it funny that the USDA has declared them "unfit for human consumption".


haggis:
1 sheep's lung (illegal in the U.S.; may be omitted if not available)
1 sheep's stomach
1 sheep heart
1 sheep liver
1/2 lb fresh suet (kidney leaf fat is preferred)
3/4 cup oatmeal (the ground type, NOT the Quaker Oats type!)
3 onions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup stock

Wash lungs and stomach well, rub with salt and rinse. Remove membranes and excess fat. Soak in cold salted water for several hours. Turn stomach inside out for stuffing.
Cover heart and liver with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Chop heart and coarsely grate liver. Toast oatmeal in a skillet on top of the stove, stirring frequently, until golden. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Loosely pack mixture into stomach, about two-thirds full. Remember, oatmeal expands in cooking.

Press any air out of stomach and truss securely. Put into boiling water to cover. Simmer for 3 hours, uncovered, adding more water as needed to maintain water level. Prick stomach several times with a sharp needle when it begins to swell; this keeps the bag from bursting. Place on a hot platter, removing trussing strings. Serve with a spoon. Ceremoniously served with "neeps, tatties and nips" -- mashed turnips, mashed potatoes, nips of whiskey

lol I know it's a very stupid question but some countries don't really have the 4 seasons so that's why I asked that...

And no unfortunately I have never been overseas..

Saying that though, the one thing that would stop me moving to the USA permanently is......guns.

It would take a LOT to get me to move out of Scotland permanently....I love the place too much.
If you change Scotland into the Netherlands i see something familiar

What do you think about the difference in social security ?

U2Girl! Never been out of the USA? You must, some time!

I live in Scotland and i can tell you it's a wonderful place&sometimes has 4 seasons in one day!

I hate haggis myself&find it revolting!

Hi Ewen! Found you! Don't worry though as i absolutely adore fish&chips!!!! Yummy!

The furthest north i've been is Lossiemouth, which is about what? 25 miles northeast of Inverness. I've been up in Inverness twice&i love it. It's so beautiful up there! Can't wait to go back!

I ask Ewen stupid questions about Scotland all the time, hence I have nothing to contribute here.




























he says awfully sweet things about me, though.
