We won’t be making a really traditional Burns Night, but we will be having “neeps and tatties” (mashed turnips and mashed potatoes), plus cabbage and pork sausages, since authentic haggis is banned here anyway. I have a bagpipe video to play, and we will say the Selkirk Grace:

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.

We have a Norwegian version on a plate from Stavanger, inherited from Robert’s family:

Noen har brød, men kan ikke spise.
Andre kan spise men har ikke brød.
Vi har brød og vi kan spise.
Derfor vil vi Herren prise.

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. - Howard Thurman.
