You may be wondering about the strange sayings randomly included
in the right sidebar of my website. These Scottish proverbs come
from a book called "A
Collection of Scottish Proverbs," hosted by the wonderful
resource Blacmask Online.
There are 839 proverbs in this list, so it will take some time for
you to see them all, but feel free to hit refresh to see a new one.
You are also welcome to view the
entire list all at once, if you would like. The script that
serves up this random dish of Scottish goodness is free, courtesy
of the PHP DB Guy.
The question may arise: Why Scottish proverbs? Why not just about
anything else? Well, for those who know me, my recent interests
include my Scottish heritage. You can see some of this by looking
at my Rutherford
Family Name site, found on my personal
page. The more I research, the more I feel tied to the Scots,
and thought this would be a fun way to show off my Scottish pride.
Some of these proverbs have easily deduced meanings, but some .
. . I have no clue. Feel free to ponder them if you would like,
but this is not meant to be taken too seriously. Enjoy.
