Primaries… Interesting! WITHOUT interest to open a debate (no politics please)… I would be so interested to get your perspective and observations on it!
You’re following it closer than I am… for sure… and for a Scotsman (or any foreigner, for that matter), I bet it is quite entertaining indeed!
British politics is all about policies. What each political party has to offer. It doesn’t really get down to personalities. As it would seem in the US. i.e. Donald Trump obsessing over the height of Mike
Without regard for personal preference, who do you think will win?
From an outsiders prospective I’d like to see Joe Biden win the Presidency. I don’t really know the man or his values but what I see is a Statesman, A Leader, someone who can connect with other world leaders. I feel that is sadly lacking in Donald Trump who I regret to say is not well liked this side of the big pond.
As for TV… Do you have Netflix, per chance? Sometimes, we who watch Netflix enjoy recommending shows or series to binge-watch.
Yep we have Netflix but the other half controls the remote.
I have been reading the Bible and some other stuff too. Right now, I have my Bible, a fantasy book and Earl Scruggs 5-string Banjo Standard. I sooooo enjoy reading the story about “the old days” of his early career.
Speaking of that, as Earl’s book is to Banjo, I wonder if there is a quintessential Mandolin book (about the history of the instrument or instructional) that anyone might suggest?
ADDED NOTE: I have since opened up a separate discussion in Mandolin category for this… and ask responses to post there instead.
Anyway, thanks for checking in… and by the way, much of my family is from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and France.
My mom’s Grandfather (who established her family surname Burnie - shortened from McBurnie) was Scottish. Hence, I root for Scotland to do well during Rugby 6 Nations.
Well it’s time to got pick some banjo
