So... now I am spinning. Not twirling round in circles but using a hand spindle. It's that old 'Gill of all trades' issue again. I have always said that I 'know a lot of things about a lot of things but not very much about anything'. I try so many things and read so many thngs but only on a surface level. So I can talk a little about just about everything but not in depth. I guess it's just the way I am. Anyway, I have included a photo of some of my spinning attempts. It is great fun and relatively cheap. For anyone who wants to give it a go take a look at: http://www.joyofhandspinning.com/HowToDropspin.shtml

So we have the Scottish National Party and Alex Salmond in power here in Scotland. I was a huge supporter of the party when I was younger. That was at a time when I was living in the South of England and dying to get back 'home'. The question now is will the party be able to pull its weight and make Scotland into the country it could and should be? That remains to be seen. They have been the underdog for so long (when compared to Labour, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats). But they say every dog has its day. I do know that both Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon have always spoken passionately about Scotland. If they put that passion into the job we may do quite nicely. I am up for giving them a chance.
