    A wee bit late today after a long day travelling, but- A Song a Week #25 is now available for listening on my YouTube Channel - this week it’s Going Home. youtu.be/VN0GAjcbxmI
    Big sigh. Why exactly do people hate / feel threatened by Gaelic so much? Scottish people? It’s beyond me. Trolled since yesterday and I give up.
    It’s tiring reading all the anti- Gaelic posts, and mostly I skip over. This one made me think though. How about a list of reasons for sending a child to GME? 1. The amazing career opportunities available to Gaelic speakers... Who wants to go next? #thagàidhligbeo twitter.com/Ricardo_Bald/s…

    A Song a Week #20 is up for listening. A Waulking song with some bird song this week! youtu.be/GQa15wMSKts #ceòl #òrangachseachdainn
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a scary thought, but given the voting intention south of the border, a next general election (which is likely soon) could make Nigel Farage a front runner for PM. Terrifying. #letmeoutofhere twitter.com/heraldscotland…
