A Bottle And Friend
 
</td></tr><tr><td>
 There's nane that's blest of human kind,
But the cheerful and the gay, man,
Fal, la, la, &c.

Here's a bottle and an honest friend!
What wad ye wish for mair, man?
Wha kens, before his life may end,
What his share may be o' care, man?

Then catch the moments as they fly,
And use them as ye ought, man:
Believe me, happiness is shy,
And comes not aye when sought, man.

Robert Burns

Tomorrow is Burns Day, the anniversary of his own birth. So today you should all be gathering the ingredients for a fine haggis, and polishing your best uisge-beatha glasses in preparation for tomorrows festivities!

Hear, hear.

There's been some nice Burns stuff on the radio this week. Alas, my SO's Burns gig was canceled owing to snow, but because of the rehearsing we've also had some nice live Scottish music around the house, too.
