Happy Hogmanay!
Towering in gallant fame,
Scotland my mountain hame,
High may your proud
standard gloriously wave,
Land of my high endeavour,
Land of the shining rivers,
Land of my heart for ever,
Scotland the brave!

I haven't got any cake, but I got some nice dark chocolate, and lotsa creme de café flavoured vodka. Will that do? :mrgreen:

Part of the Hogmanay tradition involves eating cake.

So I'm told by a Scots friend.
Be safe.
Be discreet.
And have fun.

Yep, black bun cake (a fruit cake), it's supposed to bring good luck. Along with whisky and shortbread. I always go for the whisky first :)

New yrs resolution - Make more 'shine.
It is most absurdly said, in popular language, of any man, that he is disguised in liquor; for, on the contrary, most men are disguised by sobriety. ~Thomas de Quincy, Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, 1856
