Soap box gurn, well cornflake box type of gurn then.
The real worrying thing is that everyone in India and China thinks it would be a good idea if they had a car and a fist full of credit cards too, shoe shops refitted, new fancy suburbs next to the airport and a mega Tescos. Perhaps hydrogen powered go-karts will save the day. It's all beyond this blogger, he just hopes he gets the chance to vote for Bill Shand.

Utube better than the telly?
This entry has no connection with Nairn apart from an amazing vid being seen on a computer in in the town. No need for telly anymore that's for sure. The film maker is a Scot called Ron Stirling.

The local regiment marched down the High Street today and the Provost and a few others were waithing for them outside the courthouse.
Seo na bhideos dhut.

Oifis-ghuail - Coal office
I used to really enjoy going over to Douglas Street to pay my account at Frank Milne’s office. There was always a little conversation to be had and because they sold coal there was always a fìre going no matter what the weather outside was doing. Now it is shut and it appears that it will be coming down and a house going in its place. I reckon the old millennium is already far behind us.
PS. Chan eil mi cinnteach ma bhios mi a’ sgrìobhadh air a’ Ghurn gu tric ach bho seo a-mach ma nochdas dad idir, bidh e càil dà-chànanach: Gàidhlig agus Beurla
I don’t know if I will be writing often on the Gurn but from now on, if anything appears at all it will be bi-lingual: Gaelic and English

Message from the swan mannie
Hi, good news......the resident swans are back with 5 cygnets !
They arrived this afternoon about 3 ....i was passing the harbour when they came in....mother with all 5 on her back....they headed straight for the 2 young swans that had lost their nest, and proceeded to oust them...( i hope they find a new site).
I went down into the harbour basin and they came over to show me the brood....gave them a good feed of wholemeal bread....think it was the first bread since the 17 march when they left. the cygnets are gorgeous...and i reckon they are older than the ones last year when they arrived...probably a week old ! It's great to see them back....i think they were pleased to be back too ! enclosed pic i took this evening.

News from the swan blogger
The big problem will be when the resident pair get back from lochloy with their offspring....i hope they can co exist for this season....it may be the first time we will have two lots of Swans and cygnets on the river at the same time !
There should be enough food supply...at least during the summertime.....and if they share the territory, 2 up the top area...and the other two towards the harbour and pier..it could work out ...if only they could reason like us !!!!
