You will note that I did not contribute to the alleged Celtic/Brito-centric leanings of this forum by pointing out that yesterday was the anniversary of two events.

The more recent was the death of George VI, who was succeeded by his daughter, Elizabeth II, 50 years ago. (Political aside, "Hang in there, Queen Bestie - yer a heluvalot better than that ejit son of yours!")

The other is, for me, more notable as the "song" was first taught to me as the pipe "tune" - The Rape of Glencoe. The song the Massare of Glencoe tells the tale (albeit a little one-sidedly) of events happening in that valley on February 6, 1692.

Combine that with Davey Steele's Beaches of St. Valarie and No Man's Land and you've got a depressing tio of historically based songs.

Regards -

Pete

My calendar shows that yesterday's big event was Waitangi Day in New Zealand. My apologies to all you Kiwis for having missed that red-letter day.

There was a hysterical bit on the Queen's reign and Mr. Potato Head, which apparently both turned 50...

I think it might be constructive for me to point out (since I was a part of the discussion being alluded to here) that the complaint wasn't because of people pointing out things that are Celtic/Brito-centric. It was the criticisms being leveled at people who didn't share this knowlege of things that are Celtic/Brito-centric. To me, this seems like very important distinction.

And I think that taking note of it could help to promote good feelings all around by encouraging (quite rightly) those who celebrate their Celto/Britishness to continue doing so, and helping others to celebrate and enjoy them as well, while at the same time, allowing people not from that (those) cultures the space to feel good about whatever they're familiar with. Does this sound in any way unfair to anybody?

I think you're right, Mark. Have you made arrangements with that Anesthesiologis/Hypnotist who's going to knock me out for the plane ride yet?

I heard the "Beaches of St. Valarie " song two weeks ago for the first time. Sung by a guy called Ed McGurk at our club. Wish I could write just one song like that. It would make all the effort worthwhile.

Spot.
