PROPAGANDA: INDEPENDENCE FOR SCOTLAND

Yes! for Scottish Independence!

On this beautiful Independence Day here in the USA, I feel like it’s important to talk about the upcoming referendum in Scotland on September 18th 2014. If I could vote in this national referendum, which poses the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” my vote would be a resounding yes! Or as we say back in Scotland, “Aye!” I’m so excited for the referendum even if it doesn’t pass quite yet, I think it’s wonderful that the question is being {Read More}

I have briefly mentioned that my friend, Mosa, hosts regular MothUP story parties in her living room. What I didn’t mention is what an amazing hostess Mosa is. Each and every time I’ve been to one of her story telling parties, there has been a different kind of cocktail and there’s always a wonderful spread of dips and hors d’oeuvres, and usually something with lots of cheese and some sort of sweet treat like homemade red velvet mini cupcakes. It’s a wonder any {Read More}
