Technical IT triumph !

After months of IT paralysis, I finally struggled manfully through the unimaginable technical complications of uploading a file to Youtube… as if millions of others hadn’t done this already!
Anyway, put your hands together for Ruairidh Macleod playing “Seagull” on his bagpipes.  A young man from the West coast of Scotland travelling round France before starting his medical studies to be a doctor, he stayed a week with us in November, just after the harvest. It’s a pity the weather wasn’t better, but the sound of the pipes just below the house was delightful.

Later, his rendition of Scotland the Brave in the village square opposite the Petit Bar was a huge success. The bar was bulging with Rugby Club de Toulon supporters there to watch the Toulon – Grenoble match (an away match, Toulon won 39 – 3) and Ruairidh played during the half time break to the great applause of all the French: we didn’t have to buy another round all evening!
