    50% discount for u18s and those travelling from outside Scotland to participate
    Half price for people from England - that will go down well with those frugal Scots!

    I believe neither in luck nor chess trainers (unless they touched Botvinnik some time in their lives, and although I dream of one, but I imagine him more like a kind of Merlin), but I would have payed for those lessons, had I been able to travel there, only to see what Short would say, as I sometimes give away 20 eur on roulette, just t feel it.

    Well, fill it with pretty boys in kilts, then. It's not as if Nigel will be able to tell the difference.

    "This is in Scotland, remember."

    My wife is Scottish.

    She gets up an hour earlier just so she can hate me longer.

    In Danmark there is an expression "buksemyndig" for girls who are adult enough to date with boys. "Bukser" means pants.

    And there is expression "Who wears the pants in our family?"

    In connection to Scottishness in your family, if you are Scotman also, so neither expresson is valid here.

    Green Pawn is English, although he has lived in Scotland for over sixty years (he moved there when he was 18).
