Scottish Homecoming 2009

Well it's 2009 the year of Scotland's Homecoming. A year for all Scots and Scots relatives to celebrate the country and her history. This year is also the 250Th anniversary of Rabbie burns ( Robert ) and one of his most well known poems that he wrote was Address to a Haggis, this poem is recited every January the 25Th. So for those that don't know it i will give you the first verse

Fair fa' your honest sonsie face
Great chieftain o' the puddin'-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe or thairm,
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang's my arm
