Going to Scotland is on my bucket list. I am of Scottish descent on both sides of the family, my surname is Robson, and my mothers maiden name is Murray. Robsons started out in Scotland but ended up in a village called falstone in Northumberland county, England

Hello, all.  I'm about 3/4 Scots, and although I've never been to Scotland, it's on my bucket list.

TinMan, how much did that cost?  how fast did you get the results?

Comment by M. Travis Henderson on February 9, 2012 at 9:16am

Good morning,

My name is Travis Henderson. From an early age I was taught to be proud of my Scottish heritage. This past September I was able to make my first trip our Home Land. I spent most of my time in Edinburgh. But the highlight of my trip was when I went to Fordell and saw Henderson Castle. Going to Fordell felt like a pilgrimage. While I was there I finally got my first tattoo, the Henderson Crest. I am recently married, and during the wedding I wore a kilt of the Henderson tartan. I am glad to be a member of a group that celebrates Scotland.

Did anyone hear about the Scottish independence referendum?

Comment by Fred S Davenport, Jr on January 14, 2012 at 9:53pm

Ian, you should post some pics of those tartans and kilts.

Comment by Ian Wilson on January 14, 2012 at 9:44pm

my wedding kilt is the Gunn Modern tartan.  which i think is handsome.  being a Wilson, i have a Wilson tartan tie.  and though officially the main color in it is red, it always appears orange.  so i don't want it as a kilt.  but my mom's mom was a Boyd, and i would love a Boyd kilt.

I've lost a lot of weight! How should I expect my life to change?

Hello Gentlemen.I'm very excited to say that I'm down about 50 pounds in the last 5 or so months. I'm still losing. I was very overweight, and I decided to do something about it. I'd like to lose about 20 more pounds if at all possible. I stopped eating as much. I took up cooking. As a 23-year-old bachelor, I can attest that those of my species don't eat the greatest. I set out to break that stereotype. I eat well, but I control what I put in the tank, so to speak. Being creative in my kitchen…See More
