Yeah, I spent many a year looking for clever ways to dispose of the black pudding at breakfast. Stay out of the heat.

Did I here my name being typed? My family McAllister [one gen back] is from Kintyre and they came to Kentucky in 1918. Some went into the Bourbon biz and the rest into the Grocery biz. I go back every couple of years, usually spending a week in London, a few days in Edinburgh and then over to Kintyre for another week or so. We should be going over next year.

When we went over in 2000 we rented a E320 at Milton Keynes and drove all through Scotland [1800 miles]. The car had just been dropped off by Mika Hakkinan. The tranny was the adaptive type and it took about two hours to get the shifting back to "normal" spirited driving shift patterns. Wife was not amused.

Blimey-who'd a thunk it ? Chirpy Scots and dour Cockney sparras? Must be some mistake,heheheh


Friends and green spaces make Aberdeen Britain's happiest city
15:23pm 10th August 2006


The weather may tend to be warmer down south but a new survey today revealed that Scots have the sunniest disposition.

Aberdeen fought off its grey, Granite City image to be revealed as the happiest place to live in the UK, with Glasgow coming in a close second.

But the poll brought bad news for those in the UK capital, with Londoners found to be the most miserable people in the country.


And England's other major cities - Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Newcastle - fared little better, with all of them being listed among the top five unhappiest places to live.

The survey came up with the results after judging factors such as environmental surroundings, community spirit and ratio of men to women.

A spokesperson for Anchor Butter, the firm which commissioned the You Gov poll, said the study showed a lack of greenery or sense of community brought people down.

"It may not be a surprise to people living in the north that life is better there but it could come as a shock to die-hard southerners," she said.

Chirpy Aberdonians

The poll of 2,000 Britons found Aberdonians stayed chirpy because they have access to large areas of green space and have a close community spirit.

Despite its grey image, the survey found 78 per cent of residents live in an area with plenty of greenery.

Furthermore, 85 per cent of people live with friends, family or partners, rather than alone or with strangers, more than half the city's residents live in a close-knit community and there is roughly the same number of men to women in the city.

In Glasgow, the figures were largely similar, although a smaller percentage of the population - 65 per cent - lives in a green area.

Bristol boosted England's rating by being revealed as the third happiest place in Britain.

Sheffield proved it is not so grim up north by coming in fourth while St Alban's scooped fifth place in the happy league.

Unhappy Londoners

However, the survey found 55 per cent of Londoners live in busy, urban areas with little greenery or community spirit.

Nearly 60 per cent of those in the bottom-placed Greater London area live alone or in a shared house with strangers, rather than with loved ones.

There are also far more women than men in the capital, with the ratio standing at 60:40.

As a result of all these elements, London is a breeding ground for unfulfilling relationships and careers, said social commentator and psychotherapist Gladeana McMahon.

Author Ms McMahon, an honorary visiting lecturer in the psychology department of the University of East London, said: "Numerous studies have shown that being surrounded by people with whom you have a deep relationship helps to maintain a happy disposition.

"Being around some form of natural greenery is definitely a key influencer of happiness levels. "Londoners are not as environmentally fortunate as people in Scotland."

The top five happiest areas in the UK:
1 Aberdeen
2 Glasgow
3 Bristol
4 Sheffield
5 St Albans


The top five unhappiest areas in the UK:
1 London
2 Manchester
3 Liverpool
4 Birmingham
5 Newcastle
