Yes Bob, information is good so far. There is a daily briefing from the PM or one of his senior ministers plus any relevant experts broadcast from Downing Street every evening at 5.00pm. Our Prime Minister has been tested positive for Covid 19 so he is broadcasting from his home in Downing Street..
All transplant patients in Scotland received an eight page letter from our Chief Medical Officer yesterday with all the relevant information plus a link to register with them. We will receive further information by text or email via this link. They will provide us all with essential supplies such as hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes, toilet paper etc and food, if we need it. Some people who live alone are struggling although there are voluntary groups springing up everywhere. Personally, my husband is able to get me everything I need and, as someone who loves cooking, I have a well stocked larder. All in all, I surprise myself by saying that our governments, both Scottish and UK, seem to be doing pretty well. One caveat is that we expect our 'peak' in the next couple of weeks so everything may change… On a brighter note, One of my neighbours is a very good piper and he is playing out in his garden every evening at 7.00pm. It is truly heart warming and we all clap or bang pot lids to show our appreciation. Life can be wonderful even in these dark times.Take care and stay safe. Best Wishes from Scotland

What a beautiful ending to the day. My uncle was a piper and my daughter had a lone piper going Into and out of the church
on her wedding day. Later we had my son in law’s father’s entire pipe band marching down the street from the reception to Flanagans Pub. The same band played at his wake. The sound is so moving. It’s great to have a sense of community where you live….sadly lacking in many of these isolated suburban neighborhoods in the states.

Oh, Wildcat, thank you for your post. It is very heartening to hear that both Scotland and UK are keeping you well informed, providing all with essential supplies and that volunteers are sprouting up to help as well. I'll be sending prayers and good wishes your way in the coming days as Scotland prepares for your peak.

My most favorite trip was to Beauly, Scotland in the early 80's. As a Frazer, it was beyond description to not only spend 2 nights at the Frazer Hotel and visit the cemetery of so many earlier Frazers but Lord Lovat, WWII hero and chief of our clan, invited us for tea the second day.

On the way to Balblair House we stopped at a roadside florist for a bouquet. Handing them to Lady Lovat as we exited the car, we learned that that day was her birthday. They were so gracious and I so nervous! He inscribed a personal message in the copy of his memoir, March Past, which he gave me.

Although the castle was now lived in by the son who was away, he called ahead to permit us the freedom to explore the surrounding grounds and small stream running through. That night at the hotel, he'd arranged for 2 pipers to play as we dined. Truly an incredible, mountain top experience. Thank you so much for evoking this precious memory.
