It’s 25th January and  Robbie Burns night.

He is often referred to as a “Man of the soil”, having been born a farmers son and run Ellisland farm near Dumfries. His enterprise was doomed to fail as soil improvement would result in punitive rent increases! Some themes never change…
So whatever you are eating for supper, raise a glass to “The Selkirk grace”…..

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
Sae let the Lord be Thankit!
