You never know whats roon the corner..

You never know whats roon the corner.. A wee comment i keep hearing..
Never more true than this wee trip . Rounding the corner i slammed on
the brakes . Turning the engine off i got oot tae stare at the horror
that waited. Finding a wee rock i opened my baccy tin and rolled a fag
as the horror screamed. In the darkness invisible hands pulled at my
spirit. Standing stubbing oot my fag. I smiled got in the wagon and
buggered off roon the next corner... I life withoot corners DEATH.

Dear andy,

On 26 November, the Scottish Government will produce its white paper
on independence: the blueprint for what happens if we vote Yes next
year. This is a wonderful chance for the Yes movement to discuss the
incredible opportunities offered by putting Scotland's future in
Scotland's hands. In the run-up here's some usual information.

http://yesscotland.net/news/even-our-opponents-agree-scotlands-got-what-it-takes


** Key message for an undecided voter
------------------------------------------------------------
Scotland has got what it takes to be a successful, independent
country. Even the politicians who disagree with Scottish independence
agree with that basic fact. Scotland more than pays its way. And
Scotland has the opportunity to use its resources to make a fairer,
more prosperous country. A country that is governed by its own values
rather than those of the Westminster elite.

Find more information here (http://www.yesscotland.net/answers) .
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Id49Nc1ds8


** Video: washing machines and independence
------------------------------------------------------------
Elaine C Smith discusses the benefits of an independent Scotland,
using the metaphor of leaving home and taking control of your own
affairs. Watch the video on our YouTube channel
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Id49Nc1ds8) .


** Launch of Green Yes
------------------------------------------------------------
On Friday, the Scottish Green Party will launch their Green Yes
campaign (http://www.scottishgreens.org.uk/independence/) at the Hub
in Edinburgh. The morning and afternoon sessions are free to attend,
although space is limited and booking is required
(mailto:office@scottishgreens.org.uk?subject=Booking%20for%20Green%20Yes%20event)
. Spaces are open to members of the Scottish Green Party and those
with an interest in green issues and Scottish independence.

#voteyes

Instead of the short sighted view
laying of workers on the clyde we
should be investing in oor
shipyards and the skilled labour.
As always Scotland leads the way
as the link below proves again.
With investment and drive we will
create more work and along the
way help the planet #voteyes in
2014

What is a simple life ?

What is a simple life ? . I guess tae everyone it means something
different. Tae me it has many aspects . Not least the ability tae
follow the urge tae go tae woods ,mountains, moors ,sea and noo and
again a toon when i choose. Having all we need or want in a van. Nae
debt tae me the worst anchor. But above all keeping my spirit free
from crap tae reach oot and live a simple life wae all the dreams
along the unfolding road ..

dragons breath

Just before you get tae Lochinver take the single track tae Drumbeg .
5 miles or so along the track and as you drop and wind your way tae
the glen floor. On your right a wee pull in wae a burn in flow, stop
and cross the road follow the burn as it ambles tae the shore. At the
sandy cove look tae your left a tall ben wae a flat rock awaits you.
The climb nae more than 20 mins. Sit on the rock and close your eyes
and when the tide allows. From the sea cave under the overhang the
sound of a sleeping dragon will wrap your mind. Pure magic

A wee film about us on STVs the HOUR SHOW click on STV logo to see the film
Andy the Daft Hermit lives 45 minutes outside Inverness with his wife Mel in an old bus parked in a layby. This current home of theirs is the longest they have ever stayed in one spot. “I’ve been travelling now 25 years,” said Andy Lowe. “Mel’s been travelling 15. One of the reasons we’ve come and stayed up here is because of Mel’s health. I wanted to bring her to the mountains for fresh air and clean water and just a slower pace of life.” Mel has had breast cancer twice, skin cancer once, and for three years believed she had bone cancer after being wrongly diagnosed. Andy’s belief in the restorative powers of the north made them pack up ‘The Black Bus’ that they live in and cross the border into Scotland. New Highland home for hermit couple Andy and Mel “I think we both believe in trying to get to a more simple way of life,” said Andy, “but it’s strange for us because we are sort of hermits, or we like to live separate, but it’s not being anti-social… it’s just the way we are that allows us to be creative.” Andy first began travelling when he left the army. Fed up with bureaucracy he packed a rucksack and left for France and has been travelling ever since. By investing any money the couple have earned into solar panels and wind generators they now live a self-sustaining existence, without electric bills, and collect rain water “straight from Heaven”. “It’s not easy,” said Mel. “There might be time when there might not be enough facilities around, but you always find a way, you know?” Rather than rejecting technology, Andy blogs about his travels online and collaborates with artists from around the world via his ‘Scratchy Heid Film Studio’, which he runs from a static trailer next to the couple’s bus. He explained his philosophy: “My belief is that if you can go through life and you drop dead and you’ve got a balance there that slightly outweighs the good than the bad, you’ve done alright. “Yesterday, with what Mel’s been through with the cancer and all that, I had a woman on one of my sites there that thanked me for the writing, for the positive things, and to me that’s worth everything. You can keep your millions, we’re not interested. That is what we do.” To check out Andy’s artwork and video projects check out his website. MORE FROM THE NORTH
