Default Hello from Scotland

Hi everybody.
My name is Dougie Swan, I live in Scotland
My son David and I restore old engines, he has had a couple of articles published in the "stationary engine" mag.
We have at present a WW2 Lister A fuel bowser engine, a Wolsely WD2, Stuart Turner R3, Amanco hired hand and chore boy, Lister D, a Petter M, Norman T300 from a WW2 seachlight, a Scammel WW2 lightweighr fire pump and a Blackburne single cylinder. Most are running, some are works in progress.
I hope to have some input to some of the threads here and look forward to talking to you
Regards
Dougie

Welcome to the Stak!

As long as you don't expect me to eat haggis, we'll get along fine!

Hi Elden, you don't like haggis??

Whats not to like??

A thousand generations of Scots survived by hunting the haggis

Then they would paint themselves blue and march off to fight the English or anybody else that rattled their cage

Seriously though, thanks for the welcomes and I look forward to picking the brains of the members and sticking my oar in when I think I can help

Dougie:

I think Haggis, like lutefisk, is an acquired taste. Not that I've ever tried either. Just the thought of it makes me a bit queasy!

Hi Dougie, & welcome to the Stak.
Sounds like a great collection you have there, as for haggis I've not tried it yet but have eaten Scotch Eggs & have oat porridge more than twice a week for breakfast....

Haggis recipes are best left to those with a strong stomach
