Well it being the end of a forgettable year for me I thought I should celebrate it with a Scottish Hogmanay disoplay of most of my Scottish collection. For a McKenzie whose male ancestors came from beside Eilean Donan Castle it seemed appropriate. Happy Old & New Year to everyone. I intend to have a better one this year.
